Campbell Brown for CEO!


Quick – let’s hire this woman to be the new CEO of BP, and Massey Energy, and Toyota.

I wasn’t especially a fan of Campbell Brown’s hour on CNN.  But she is now leaving.  And this is an honest statement about why she is leaving.  It is a shock to read, in this day of spin, denial, blame game, “it’s not my fault” responses to bad news.

Maybe she could start a revolution.

Read the article here.  Here’s the excerpt of her statement:

“To be clear: this is my decision, and one that I have been thinking about for some time,” she continued. “As for why, I could have said, that I am stepping down to spend more time with my children (which I truly want to do). Or that I am leaving to pursue other opportunities (which I also truly want to do). But I have never had much tolerance for others’ spin, so I can’t imagine trying to stomach my own. The simple fact is that not enough people want to watch my program, and I owe it to myself and to CNN to get out of the way so that CNN can try something else. CNN will have to figure out what that is.”
