One week after CNN announced that Bernard Kalb had quit as a panelist on its
weekly Reliable Sources ("We wish him all the best as he continues to
turn his critical eye on the media."), Kalb has indicated that CNN's
reliable sources were all wrong.
He told the online MediaNews that the CNN
announcement was "premature" and that he intends to remain on the weekend
media review show. Kalb says that he was still engaged in contract
discussions with the cable news network when its PR department issued the
statement announcing his resignation.
