In case you missed all this "Roland Martin related drama" last week, like I did, CNN anchor Campbell Brown returned to No Bias, No Bull last week. (Now no longer called "No Bias, No Bull.")
The show is in a horrifying fourth place slot getting beat (again) by friggin' Headline News. For those not watching, CNN contributor Roland Martin sat in for Brown while she was on maternity leave. Some wondered if the babysitting gig was a trial balloon for Martin finally getting his own show. But because CNN's ratings are trè crappè right now, everything is up in the air.
As long time readers may know, I love Roland Martin even if he does not love me. I so enjoy it when he pops up on the blog to set me straight about something or other. It's hilarious and wonderful. I don't know if he finds it hilarious and wonderful. HE SHOULD. But I doubt it.
Someone who I know Roland doesn't find "hilarious" or "wonderful" right now is The Root's Jimi Izrael, who incurred the wrath of Roland over some anecdote where he claimed my fair Rolly Rolls was some sort of incense and beef jerky peddler back in the day. In the biggest backhanded compliment of a blog posting ever, Jimi quite amazingly praises Roland while repeatedly kicking him in the gonads.
More after the jump.
