Veteran CNN journalist Isha Sesay, who worked as the newsreader on “Anderson Cooper 360,” hosted a show on HLN, and most recently served as the co-anchor of “CNN Newsroom: Los Angeles,” is out the door.

“He sucked all of the oxygen out of the room. The media is following that lead to the exclusion of almost everything else, in a meaningful way. For me, personally, it’s not what I want to spend all my time doing.”

She’d like to do stories with more of an international focus like the Ebola outbreak, foreign elections and a host of other stories that self-absorbed Americans don’t know anything about and care even less.
