The media world is abuzz over Gabriel Sherman’s highly revelatory New York magazine piece about the cable news wars.As the blog Inside Cable News noted last night on Twitter: “@gabrielsherman turns in a tour de force on cable news with enough jaw dropping nuggets to pack five separate articles … How the hell did [he] get such inside shop dirt and attach people’s names to it?!?! Awesome!”
But in the meantime, here are some juicy nuggets.
CNN's ratings have declined 40% since 2009, but overall, last year was CNN's best ever -- it turned a $500 million profit.
MSNBC recently tried to buy The Huffington Post, but HuffPo co-founder (and Business Insider investor) Ken Lerer rejected the offer.
Klein tried to get Campbell Brown to pick more fights on the air as a way to boost her flailing ratings. She hated the idea, and quit shortly thereafter.
