CNN’s John King Dethroned By Jake Tapper?

John King abdicated his office to Jake Tapper and left a bottle of Johnny Walker Black as a moving in gift.

UK Daily Mail quotes a CNN source:  “People are wondering what Jeff has planned for John. His own show didn’t work and it was dropped, so where can he go? What would be the best place for him?”

King disappeared from the airwaves and Twitter for nearly a month between December and January until Media Bistro reported he had been on an extended vacation with his family – a post-election break.

The longtime CNN correspondent who hosted ‘John King USA’ until disappointing ratings forced it off the air last summer, signed a short-term contract extension at the end of last year.

    Tapper could chug a bottle each night on air and nobody would be watching to notice.
