Woodruff Leaves CNN

The next chapter in the end of 90s television anchordom: Judy Woodruff, the host of CNN's "Inside Politics," is retiring from daily work at the network in June.

Forums: Instant reactions from Free Republic and Democratic Underground seem to indicate that both sides of the spectrum didn't have much use for her show.

While she was a bit bland at times, I think "Inside" improved in fairness and quality in the past few months. It was also one of the few respites on cable news from trial/celebrity/missing persons stuff. I hope CNN keeps the same focus in this timeslot.
