CNN Anchor: I Am Sad That I’ll Never See Bruce Jenner Again (VIDEO)

CNN anchor Carol Costello weighed in with her personal feelings on Tuesday about Caitlyn Jenner’s post-transition debut on the cover of Vanity Fair this week.

Costello picked up on a point made by E! Entertainment correspondent Ken Baker, who noted that some who remember Bruce Jenner as an Olympian in the 1970s will take some time to get her new identity as Caitlyn.

“I grew up in that generation,” Costello said. “I remember the Olympics — right, where Bruce Jenner was?”

“There is a bit of sadness in me that I’ll never see him again,” she continued. “And I’ve heard that from several people.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter pointed out that this was likely a “generational difference,” and that older people had more “complicated feelings” about Jenner’s transition.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
