    Although Soledad is not my favorite CNN correspondent I've continued to watch CNN because of the great stories. Soledad has become increasingly more abrupt with her interviews and it was absolutely wonderful to see Amy put her in her place today on starting point, it's high time someone finally reined her in. You'd never see robin Roberts acting like she is god of all knowing and all news or have an once of the rude behavior Soledad portrays on a daily basis. Nice job Amy !
