CNN is really hoppin’ today thanks to Jeff Zucker announcing his resignation over “a consensual relationship with [his] closest colleague” Allison Gollust that came to light during the investigation into allegations against erstwhile primetime host Chris Cuomo.

With Zucker out, though, it means there’s a void that needs to be filled. And who better to fill it than Brian Stelter? What CNN needs now more than anything is a devoted captain to right this sinking ship.

Kate doesn’t appear to be sold on what Brian’s selling.

Can you blame her?
