Kathleen Parker's Exit
— rdbrewer

Ace called it correctly a long time ago:

We liveblogged the first show and it was pretty clear that Kathleen Parker 1, had nothing much to say except about her One Big Topic of Sarah Palin (and nothing new there, either), and, even if you're whoring for ratings, you can't talk about her every night, can you?, and 2, was a wallflower without any command of the studio and without the sort of aggressive confidence needed to be a broadcaster.

John Ziegler makes similar points in this piece for Meidaite. Ziegler was the guest several months ago who confronted Parker about her role in the "assassination" of Palin as a candidate during the 2008 election cycle and elicited the odd response from Parker that she "didn't take part in [the assassination]; she led it." (Video below the fold.) He predicted the failure of the show then.

But the primary reason why the program couldn’t work is also the very reason Parker got the gig in the first place. She was clearly hired because she was perceived as a “conservative” who was willing to vigorously attack Palin, while not holding any particularly strong conservative opinions which might offend the largely liberal CNN audience. It is hardly a secret that the best (and perhaps only) way for an unknown or career-challenged conservative to achieve mainstream media acceptance is to be a sellout to their supposed cause (just ask Arianna Huffington, Peggy Noonan, David Brooks, David Frum, Michael Smerconish, or Joe Scarborough, to name only a few).

Criticizing Palin (along with endorsing Obama) has quickly become the most reliable path to instant notoriety/credibility for ambitious “conservatives,” and Parker became the poster child for this phenomenon. . . .

However, there is apparently a downside side to getting a show this way. Much like a guy who spends all his cash to get the girl and has nothing left to keep her, Parker had no capital with which to make the show a ratings success. . . .

With no spark, no friction, no talent, and no audience base, Parker brought nothing to the table, and the show was clearly doomed.

(Emphasis mine.) As Ace said during the liveblog that first night, it was almost like Parker was right there and part of the action.

More at the link, including some first-class snark. Like Ziegler says, the show's failure wasn't an Earth-shattering prediction. I think we all knew it was going to be a dud. What is strange is that CNN wasn't able to foresee the outcome

Their knowledge of the reading habits and views of the right is nil, so they didn't know what was patently obvious to all of us:  That she had no following or credibility among the right whatsoever.

Posted by: AD at February 26, 2011 04:27 PM (9r1ux)

21 According to the MFM, are we supposed to look up to Parker as one of those "smart conservatives"? I guess so, after all she was smart enough to make her regular TV debut co-hosting with a guy who pissed away his political career for unprotected, socked, buttsecks. I can't believe that anyone with an IQ above a cocker spaniel would think that this show was a good idea.

23 Parker will probably continue to write columns.

See, this is the funny thing.  It seems ridiculous to us that she would continue to right write columns.  Nobody on our side reads her or had even heard of her before Palin.  However, the woman now has a Pulitzer.

As far as the Washington Post is concerned she's a big deal and given how many other big name columnists have been phoning in it for years, she can probably live off that for a very long time.  To make it even more insane they picked her up as a safe conservative, so they view employing her as a way to show their balance.

29 Oh, get this.  Those lefties at Mediaite felt it necessary to put in a disclaimer that these were Ziegler's views and not those of Mediate:

The views expressed in this guest column are those of John Ziegler alone.

Like we didn't know.  Notice they don't say "not necessarily."  Funny slip-up, since Mediaite is about as left as you can clumsily get.  Here is what they should have said:

The views expressed in this guest column are indeed from a guest writer and not one of the staff liberals at Mediaite, so don't even think for a second that anybody, anybody here could possibly ever take such a viewpoint.  Here at Mediaite, we strive to bring you slanted news because, hey, we know we're part of the with-it crowd, noble, heroic, and honorable--just like the cool kids in seventh grade.  And, it is in that spirit that we decline to be clever about our bias.  We like it to be obvious to the extent it is frequently gratuitous and turns people off.  Actually, that might be a bit of a post-hoc rationalization, since the truth is our objective reality-testing skills are limited.  So it's probably too much to ask for us as children inhabiting large bodies to be professional and adult in our delivery of the news.  Just remember, we would never have a conservative-sounding take on anything.  Ever.

That would be a better, even safer disclaimer for Mediaite.

I don't know of anyone who didn't see this coming.

Spitzer is a life-long Democrat and is going to defend the Democratic position. Sure, he might occasionally disagree but c'mon, that's what he'll do (my guess is that he still thinks he has a career in politics but that's another matter).

So, Spitzer defends the liberal view and Parker is going to do what? Well, she's known for criticizing Palin and conservatives. That's her MO.

And that's what she'll do.

Who wants to watch a show where one viewpoint is defended and the opposing viewpoint criticized?

Not to mention that she came across as a wooden mannequin.

38 I'm sure that Kathleen will get plenty of spots on Tweety's weekly panel show where she can be teh "conservative" voice when Brooksie and Andi are off cornholing each other.

Is it true that Client 9 was dropping hints that he did better ratings wise when Porker was on vacation?  I'm sure he didn't feel comfortable being in the extended company of a woman who didn't have a cash basis relationship with him.

First, when John McCain hushed his booing crowd to acknowledge the significance of this nation’s electing an African-American to the presidency.

Second, when Barack Obama delivered his acceptance speech:

“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.”

Amen, brother.

50 I've always had this suspicion that the show was always just about Elliot Spitzer.  Parker was ust window dressing.

Had CNN debuted a show exclusively hosted by Elliot Spitzer, they would have come under heavy fire for giving a disgraced whoremonger an hourlong five nights a week to expound on his bullshit.  Throw in some kinda sorta wishy washy "conservative" co-host, someone too wholesome to criticize, and voila!  In the clear.  Ask her to do it for a few months, just enough time for Spitzer to build some credibility, and then let her split when it suits her.

And wouldn't ya know it they've already got Spitzer's new show titled and formatted and ready to go less then a week after Parker's announcement.  No fuss, no muss.

Apparently, she's a one-trick pony that had zero pull and had to ride the coattails of her lesser. Parker will probably start making Palin voodoo dolls now, sticking pins in it between shots of whiskey.

84 I suspect CNN foresaw the outcome.  Parker couldn't have cost them much, they got their shots on Palin, and tossed their tool to the curb when they were done with her.

All this is speculation.  I'm guessing somebody watched the show, but it wasn't me.  I've no use for Parker and less for our vicious, lying, hypocritical ex-governor. 


Posted by: MarkD at February 27, 2011 03:27 AM (6CLxP)

Years ago I read her columns, and thought they were pretty good and an easy, relaxing read with a cup of coffee. Since she insulted all Conservatives and Christians, I have ignored any column she wrote. I did not watch her recent flirtation with fame and a man who consorted with prostitutes (with his socks on). This Parker/Spitzer show was a desperate shot at best and she failed.  

Over the years, when she sought to be relevant, her columns became trite, cutesy and always, always a beat or a week behind other opinion columnists. Her columns were often a retread of other's opinions and rarely her own ideas. You see, she did not appear to actually form an opinion until she saw the lay of the land or where the wind was blowing (sort of like her great and articulate Dear Leader of a President who flew her during the campaign as she swooned like a teenager). She immediately got on the "I hate Palin" bus with personal attacks (due to her husband's comments that Palin had good legs or was good looking). Very high school "mean girl" behavior, and that of an insecure woman.

The Palin attacks fed her middle-aged ego. She was being noticed! She busily collected the emails sent to her from the knuckle-dragging conservatives, tallied them with the pro emails from the brilliant liberals and moderates from their caves at the Democrat Underground. She'd found her new sweet spot being a conservative basher, which (she thought) might continue to lead to White House dinners and Georgetown cocktail parties, and a new career as a TV pundit.

The problem was this: she did not consider the risk if the Obummer Administration nosedived, or that there would ever be a conservative cover she could not mea culpa back into. Townhall booted her to the curb. National Review will occasionally list her column, but she is no longer part of the A team, except with a few who seem willing to forgive her as she is so "talented." If FOX News hires her to be a milquetoast place holder, then whatevah. She simply cannot compete with the likes of Megyn Kelly, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham and others.

 She needs to keep writing her little ditties for the WaPo and polishing her Pulitzer that she obtained for the thirty pieces of silver---the price of the conservatives she threw to the wolves. May her Pulitzer keep her warm at night.

To hear her described years later as a "conservative" simply did not make sense to me, given my recollection of her columns. And I can remember when Huffington spoke like a conservative. My God, I'm old: /

88 "I remember Parker's meanspirited (and yet, strangely inept gven that she was a syndicated writer) attacks on Palin in 2008."

Yeah Parker is like the tease that shows the crowd everything she had and wonders why no one is interested anymore, the mystery is over!
