    CNN, your choice to remove Fareed Zakaria is ultimately your choice. I do not admit to be a literary scholar. I do know that Mr. Zakaria is the most intelligent commentator your network currently has on the air. I am not completely aware of his misjudgements, but his knowledge of foreign matters exceed all others in your orginazation. Correct him on his procedures, but removing him is not a good move for your network.

    Fareed Zakaria is the the main reason I watch your network. If he moves, I will follow.

    CNN, again, your choice.

      I'm afraid of the Republican smear maniche... Both Obama and Hillary would make excellent presidents, but you never know who the voters will choose at the end. I still can't believe W. had two presidential terms. What a disgrace.
