John King of CNN and Dana Bash of CNN are DIVORCING!!

They have been living in separate homes for several months. Their baby is not even one year old yet.

Their marriage sure didn't last long.

I noticed John King flirting with one of blonde congressional correspondents on CNN a couple months ago and commented on it here on Datalounge because it was so apparent.

Was it John King who had a problem with prescription drugs causing him to slur his words and appear unbalanced once?

I wasn't expecting this. I thought they were doing fine.

So he converted to Judaism for nothing?

Was he the object of a BI about a tv correspondent having a torrid affair (which led to this marriage?) or was it that guy who catches child predators?

John King is too good-looking for her anyway. Too bad he's straight. King and Cooper would look good together.

Here's an item from 'Blind Gossip' from February 2012:

Two broadcast journos are currently living apart. Like many people, both have had complexities in their personal lives leading up to their own, now troubled union. Will they divorce? Only time will tell. For now, he has been spotted repeatedly staying at an apartment building with another woman rumored to work at the same network. Unfortunately for him, his new neighbors aren’t too thrilled about it.

by Anonymousreply 703/21/2012

Why would his new neighbors care? Is that implying there is loud fucking going on? If it is about John King, I'm not surprised. He has BDF for days.

I guess they're still able to work together. They've been covering the Republican primaries lately. John King has been at the Magic Wall, and Dana Bash has been at the election precincts phoning in the results to him and Wolf Blitzer.

Since the blind item says he's been staying with another female CNN correspondent, maybe it is the regular blonde congressional reporter which I saw him blatantly flirting with on air.

He certainly lost interest in Dana quickly.

Both John and Dana have been married twice now.

Maybe Dana was more interested in having a baby before her biological clock ran out than she is interested in John. She is 40 and just had her first baby 10 months ago.

Dana Bash is difficult to listen to.

But a lot of the material she has to report on is not very interesting, so it is difficult for her to make it interesting.

She is still difficult to listen to in that her verbal skills are not particularly great.

This was the 2nd marriage for both of them, so it already had a higher likelihood of divorce.

King already has 2 teenagers from his first marriage.

She's never sounded like a Democrat to me, in fact she was caught saying something a while back that would lead most people to believe she's rooting for the GOP and John King has said that he thought it was a "shame" that conservatives are battling each other instead of focusing on President Obama. He's not supposed to express any kind of opinion. It's as bad as Anderson always saying that there's "plenty" to criticize President Obama about. So much for CNN and their neutrality.

Please, even Anderson flirts with Brianna. Every time she does a special report he compliments her at least three times like she's a child.

I always thought she must be related to a producer or one of Anderson's boss's since he so blatantly praises her over a simply story.

Jeff Toobin also had an affair and a child while he was married. Those CNN people are a very sexy bunch.

If I am not mistaken, Brianna Keilar got married about a year ago. I thought she was cute and had gay voice. They even talked about her being a good golfer, which got my hopes up...then they showed on air pictures of her wedding or something.

Kate Bolduan has gay voice for days. I think she's cute too, but I watch too much CNN. Hell, I even have a little crush on Gloria Borger and Donna Brazille. So, maybe I am just horny as hell.

But, true story. I heard Bolduan and John King flirting HEAVY today on air, and my first thought was "wow, maybe that BI about a CNN anchor having an affair with another CNN reporter is about these two guys!" Then, I visit DL to find out it is true about Dana and John.

And, John King is just as funny looking as Dana is, if not more. But, he does have BDF.

True, R97 - conservatives thought John King was part of the liberal media who was trying to destroy Newt Gingrich about his marriages before the South Carolina primary. They don't seem to realize he is probably a Republican. Way off base.

One of the funniest things I've read on DL was about why John King would choose a woman like Dana Bash.
