If you work for CNN apparently your reputation as a liberal journalist precedes you, at least that what CNN's Erin Burnett revealed to Conan O'Brien on October 23, 2012. The OutFront host, appearing as a guest on TBS's Conan, relayed that when she told a passenger on her flight that she worked for CNN the passenger replied: "Oh yeah. In the can for Obama."

Burnett's anecdote came during a discussion of how she was forced to watch the final presidential debate on her outbound flight to appear on Conan O'Brien's late night talk show.
