The buzz is building on Wall Street as the Dow and S&P near all-time highs. Christine Romans is minding your business.
I'm sitting here at 6:00 watching Early Start, a morning routine I usually appreciate, but this morning I am in stunned disbelief at the Conan O'Brien joke just replayed on the program. CNN, Early Start, and O'Brien owe all adopted children an apology for the outrageously offensive joke. O'Brien said, "The mother of the Harbaugh brothers plans to call the losing coach of the Super Bowl and tell him he's adopted." This comment sends the damaging message to all adopted children that they are not "real sons and daughters." No wonder adopted children struggle with their identity when joking about it on national television is considered funny. Some things are just not funny.
"Early Start with John Berman and Christine Romans" airs weekdays from 5-6am ET on CNN. Check in regularly for news, show updates and a little bit of fun.
