Roland Martin Calls New York Post Page Six 'A Flat Out Lie'

The New York Post ran a Page Six item titled "SINKING ANCHORS ANDERSON COOPER AND ROLAND MARTIN HOBBLE CNN"

"It's a flat out lie!", said Roland Martin on his tenure as substitute host for Campbell Brown's "No Bias, No Bull." The item said the show nose-dived in the ratings while Brown was on maternity leave the past month. "Sources say he has complained the network doesn't promote him enough or book him high-profile guests," the Post said. Martin told Journal-isms via e-mail, "FLAT OUT LIE. I never even uttered those words, never said any such thing to any network executive or any other staffer. I would be embarrassed as an editor or writer of a paper to put out such a lie." CNN spokeswoman Barbara Levin told Journal-isms, "Roland has done a great job filling for Campbell Brown at 8 pm by providing smart, engaging and lively discussion and debate each evening." However, a network spokeswoman, asked specifically about the ratings, said, "We won't have further comment on that."
