Soledad and our Starting Point producers will be moderating.

    The CNN pictures of Soledad reading and then quoteing from a liberal blog while she debated a Republican spokesperson are proof that Soledad is not a reporter, she just reads (during her show) other liberal blogs and repeats it without question. So much for balance from CNN. Wear your bumper sticker.

    OMG, that exchange between Soledad & John Foonunu this morning was incredible, Soledad is not afraid of anything!
    She is not only beautifull but smart and funny too–WHAT A WOMAN–I get so sick of partisan zealots try to power through all there bias talking points and the guest host not challenge any discrepancies- YOU GO GIRL- He got so frustrated with you making so much sense he had to resort to name calling-I LOVE IT!

    Soledad, I fully support your tough interviewing that doesn't concede objective facts to partisan talking points. If more TV news interviewers followed suit, the nation would be better versed in the truth. I haven't watched much CNN lately, but I'll be watching your show from now on.

    About that python, it most likely was a refugee/survivor of Hurricane Andrew (1992 Catagory 5) that damaged or destroyed 177,000 homes in Miami, Dade County... The amount of pets (invariably abandoned) let loose were numbered in the tens of thousands. Some of those pythons were from the many, many pet stores and the pet stores had suppliers and there were breeders too! There were also many other invasive species of animals let loose from damaged cages that plague South Florida, it's a real problem!

    Soledad, once again you made America proud of its free press Freedom requires an exchange of ideas, not just a volume of sound. Gov Sununu couldn't answer your response so he escalated into name calling. You took a higher road and I am sure that it wasn't easy; it was simply right to do.

    You go girl vs. Sununu, what a crude pig, typical republican distortion, I am embarrassed to say I am a registered republican. I luv Soledad, more of a man than Sununu.
