I “Respectfully Declined To Participate” With Last Night’s LKL, Bob Costas Explains
As TVNewser reported exclusively this morning, Bob Costas refused to host Larry King Live last night, because he didn’t want to talk about Natalee Holloway and Dennis Rader for an hour. CNN has sent TVNewser statements from Costas and LKL’s EP:

“I didn’t think the subject matter of Thursday’s show was the kind of broadcast that I should be doing. I suggested some alternatives but the producers preferred the topics they had chosen. I was fine with that, and respectfully declined to participate. There were no hard feelings at all. It’s not a big deal. I’m sure there are countless topics that will be mutually acceptable in the future.”

–Bob Costas

I have been arguing for months that Costas is perceived as genuinely neutral on matters political and thus would cause ratings to soar for the network that puts him in the post of chief newsreader.

Now he shows great taste and a welcome and much-needed dignity as well.

Memo to Les: Some things don’t have to be hard.
