    CNN's Susan Roesgen went nuts on the air Wednesday at a Chicago tea party, blaming everything (accurately) on Fox News. But maybe she was angry because Fox turned her down for a job—twice!

    Roesgen got snippy with a crazy interviewee while trying to cover the tea partiers, and the crowd turned on her. "I think you get the general tenor of this," she said. "It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox."

    Back in 2005, though, according to a Fox News source, Roesgen really wanted to work for that right-wing conservative network. She sent a tape of her on-air work to Fox's then-programming chief Kevin Magee in January 2005, and followed up with another reel to Magee's successor Bill Shine in September 2005. Needless to say, she didn't get the gig.

    I can't fault TV reporters for wanting to work for any station. That's what they do, they want their faces on TV at all times. They're pretty vain people, just like actors. I'll bet they don't even care what's on the Tele-Prompter.The pay is pretty good too.
    Why do you think there are so many former beauty queens on TV? You think that's an accident?
    Remember when Kiran Chetry of Fox bolted for CNN? I'll bet money had everything to do with it. Gretta Van Susteren used to be on CNN as well.

    Besides, If the price was right, even I would work for CNN or MSNBC. If CNN drove a Brinks truck full of cash up to my door how could I refuse?
