    To me this is a very sad day. The down sizing of smart women on this network is sadly going by the waste side. Soledad should have the right to do what she finds fulfilling in her life and that is everyones right.

    I was very disappointed and sadden by Soledad's announcement that mourning. I loved her panel and the way the interacted with each other and their guests. Soledad's style was both playful and daring, a reflection of her easygoing personality and her great understanding of journalism. Thogh hard-hitting at times, which probably made some of her guests a little nervous, the news show was very entertaining. I was surprised to hear the show was doing poorly which says a lot about how mainstream America likes it's news delivered to them. Seems to me that anything that challenges them or their political leaders has a very small place in news media.

    Over my observation time with Soledad, I saw her as a competent talking head with another unrelated O'brien. Then, when she took on politicians and issues, her clear and wise intelligence was exhibited...Decades ago, Dan Rather impressed the world with his brave questioning of power people, and Soledad seemed to pick up that abandoned gauntlet. Look over the list of pointless pretty people we are left with, but who don't offend the power people....

    When Soledad left, I was hoping to hear that CNN was putting her on a primetime show. A show where she could interview Politicians and not allow them to avoid answering questions- tough questions. Instead I hear that she was forced out as CNN decided to make Starting Point another fluff show like Today or Goodmorning America. Each morning I would tune into CNN to watch for her next great interview. I even changed my work schedule so I did not have to leave until Starting Point did the "End Point".
    I have not been able to stay tuned in for long with the new hosts. I don't get the news and interviews I need to inform me. I now watch CNBC because at least they still talk about the issues. I hope some network decides to give Soledad her own primetime show and CNN should know that I will tune to that network along with the other thousands of her fans.

    The more I watch CNN, the more disturbing the it all becomes. The manner in which they treated Roland Martin and Soledad O'Brien has not fallen on deaf ears. I am now more appreciative of MSNBC and find myself in favor of the shows there. This is not how CNN developed. Stating the ratings were too low for the time slot the show held is a poor infantile excuse. Then to add this other show only states that high up fools of management care more about the possessive investment (in whiteness) yet masquerade to say they need more ratings. Soledad has been on the forefront of shows dealing with minorities in america. She debates when other journalist cower down and accept misleading comments and misleading thoughts as answers. She will have her answers. I can see how that may make enemies but please note that Soledad has exhibited true journalism. You add misguided interlopers such as Jeff Zucker (a history major) who lacks vision and watch precious talent gets discarded. Soledad you will be missed.

This is a huge loss for us early morning folks who wanted to start the day solid. Best to you Soledad....and to CNN....another early morning show shot in the foot. Very sad.

    Focus on strong journalism which is why she no longer has a place at CNN. Sadly the network in shilling for ratings has moved to newstainment. If 04/02 show is any indication with 7 minutes dedicated to a duet by late night night TV hosts and videos worthy of Tosh.0.

    Indeed Soledad who will ask probing questions and is willing to get dirty has no place in a self promoting, found content news station.

However, you can't see the forest for the trees. Your subjective, anti-conservative views overwhelmed your reporting, and you'll never acknowledge it, nor will your apologists. I'm sure you'll find success purveying more liberal propaganda somewhere, and at least your choir will have you to look at while they're being spoon-fed BS.

    It is a sad day to see Soledad leave CNN. She is always sunny and very kind. I believe that it was the format of the show that caused the demise. There would be too many people around the table and everyone would talk at once. Some of the participants were very good and others were not good.

    I know that Soledad will succeed in making documentaries. Soledad is highly intelligent and she knows how to make people comfortable around her.

    Soledad will have more time for her family and won't have to wake up in the middle of the night.

    Totally disagree. She lost all credibilty during the election with her obvious bias for Obama- actually debating with guests instead of questioning, defending Obama- reading a list of Democrat talking points on air as "unbiased questions", etc. The fact that she felt the need to routinely remind us "I'm a journalist" and "as a reporter" speaks to this.

    If there's been a TV journalist/reporter since Walter Cronkite that I've respected as much it's been Soledad O'Brien. Her matter-of-fact and straight to the point reporting and interviewing style gave CNN high marks as a news organization. That she is (it seems) being let go is a remarkable act of ignorance on CNN's part. Frankly, I'm not at ease with her departure and really am considering alternatives to CNN as my news provider.

    It is a sad day for anyone who is watched and listened to Soledad O'Brien over the past 10 years! As a journalist I admired her willingness to stand toe-to-toe with politicans that would not answer her questions, but continued to pontificate the same old diatribe of their perespcetive party.
    Her coverage of Hurricane Katrina was mind blowing and I thought it was the most accurate and poignant fact based reporting of all the news media outlets who were there.
    Her documentary "Balck In america" provided this white guy a different perspective on the issues many black people face daily and her presentation was really non-bias in my humble opinion.
    For the distractors of her I say stick it were the sun don't shine. For all of us who will miss her morning smile, her cohorts at the desk, and the issues and events of the day she brought us we will miss her.

    It seems to be hard to be a woman these days in the media. Ann Curry was fired from the Today show for what they said were poor ratings which non-surprisingly have continued in her absence and now one of CNN's most intelligent and accomplished journalists has been shown the door in favor of Chris Cuomo who was put of GMA and another female co- hots and a female news reader. So Zucker is recreating Today show on CNN? One of the reasons I watched because Soledad was all business and not a lot of fluff. SP was not like the Today Show or GMA and that to me was a positive. I guess we can expect to see fluff celeb pieces, cooking segments, fashion segments and other non newsworthy stuff? Given the Conan debacle, I am not expecting a lot from him.. I will be switching to CBS or Morning Joe and hoping that Soledad can find another anchor news job with a network that truly appreciates her.

    Soledad was one of the few good interviewers left on television. She actually asked follow-up questions, which did not allow the interviewee's talking points to dominate the discussion. CNN has fallen off the cliff into "infotainment". There is no quality hard news program in the morning anywhere on TV. How sad. CNN is a shadow of its former self. I don't give a rip about Jody Arias, and this particular obsession is a perfect illustration of what CNN is doing WRONG. Real news will get you viewers – because no one else is giving us real news in the morning (or anytime else for that matter).

      She was not fair in the interviews and that why she lost her job, a good journalist has to be fair, not to the right or not to the left, right in the middle, just like a judge, I am glad she is gone.

    Reblogged this on The Jacobs Journal and commented:
    What does Soledad O'Brien's departure from CNN say about the network's commitment to diversity on its network shows?

    Thank you Soledad! One of the best journalists around today. Not afraid to tell the truth on important & sometimes unpopular subject. CNN will have a problem filling your shoes, I think they made a very bad decision letting you go. Good luck!! We'll be watching for your fantastic journalism.

    She was and is amazing. She was the only reason I watched CNN in the morning. I hate to see her leave. Proof that all good things must come to an end.

    And with that closing so will my family close on CNN. I will not watch a new broadcast that all they want is party line communication. Where ever Soedad goes if she is on air then that is the station I will be watching..

    Outstanding reporting Soledad! She will be missed by many viewers for the variety of guests, for the sense of humanity, fact checking and the REAL , supportive, forceful questions in the search for the truth. Love the sense of humor! Limited understanding for many viewers on how CNN let this program tenure end. Soledad your work represents the best of reporting for many many many viewers. We will all wait for your return. Suzanne
