Shales: Blame people other than King for his decline and fall

Washington Post
Larry King wasn’t doing anything different from what he’d done for 25 successful years on CNN, notes Tom Shales, so why were his ratings plummeting? “Perhaps because the booking of guests on his show had become quixotic, and because CNN executives weren’t willing to throw themselves gratefully behind Larry and stick up for him when the going got rough.” || After King, CNN at a crossroads.
