CNN’s Core State Of The Union Team Is Very White And Very Male

The rumors that the host of CNN’s premiere Sunday show will be one of the next big names to get guillotined under Jeff Zucker’s reign of terror got some legitimacy with the release of a network promo ad hyping coverage of President Barack Obama’s second State of the Union address.

The nine-second spot name-checks anchors Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper, and Chris Cuomo as the stars of the show, while lumping Capitol Hill reporter Dana Bash and Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin together like backup singers in a rock group called the “CNN team.”
