Former CNN talk show host Larry King ridiculed his former employer when asked if he would ever return to the cable channel:
The tough time I would have at CNN now, I think, would be doing this airplane story. Because I think I’d crack up laughing. I think I would have – you know, how many times can you cover a plane? Six weeks and all we know is it made a left turn.
When asked: “So you wouldn’t do that story?” King replied:
Well, what if they forced me to? I would probably not want to do it. I think it would get embarrassing after a while.
