Laura Ling Set to Host 'E! Investigates'

Laura Ling will host E! Investigates, a series of hour-long shows that tackle hard hitting stoies.

The 33-year-old journalist, who was detained in North Korea last year with Current TV colleague Euna Lee, will begin her run on E! on December 8.

“The fact that E! is committed to this type of show — that they believe that their audience is just as interested in watching substantive programs that cover substantive issues as they are in watching the Kardashians — is thrilling to me because I’ve always been trying to reach a younger audience,” Laura told the New York Times.

“[E! is] really focused on dipping deep,” Laura added.

Why do the always reward people for bad and stupid behavior. how much did this ***** cost the American taxpayers? anyone want to guess?

@Rhonda: Rhonda, if your sister was overseas and stuck in a horrible nation…I’m sure you would definitely do whatever you can to have her come back home. It doesn’t matter what the skin color is because the US is all colors. We should be grateful that our nation is fortunate and always willing to help each other. Please remember that we currently still have our military in Afghanistan and when they’re killing our people…they don’t see any color…all they see are Americans. We need to unite and fight together.

i didn’t say a word about skin color. STUPID is colorblind. If my sister was this stupid, I wouldn’t expect to see her again.

who are you freaking preaching to? what does our military being in Afghanistan have to do with a dumbshit that sneaks into N Korea, gets caught and taxpayers have to pay to get her out.

@rhonda: She did do a stupid thing but I’m sure you would give up all your life savings to have your sister free again and I’m definitely sure your parents would give up everything to have your sister come home again. Don’t sit there and tell me that your family would just let your sister slave in some other country that doesn’t give a sh!t about anyone else. You know your family would do just about anything to get her out of there. Maybe you won’t do it but I bet your parents definitely would. Every working American has to pay taxes. We pay taxes now and we’ll continue to pay taxes for the rest of our lives…either way…Americans HAVE to pay taxes. So what’s your point!!!

# 7


well, the ***** is home, so we PAID, wouldn’t suggest any one else be this stupid cause AMERICA IS SICK OF STUPID.

how much trouble can the ***** get into now working for the bimbo channel

suppose you feel the same about the ***** who went hiking in Iraq and Iran.

I have a feeling this show is going be very sensationalist. As much as she may want a news based show with journalistic integrity, its still on E. The entertainment channel!

# 9

@rhonda: actually they did not use taxpayer dollars to get home.

We need to unite and fight together.

@rhonda Educate Yourself! Laura’s did a great thing and went through something I nor anyone could imagine and you want to complain. Yu literally make me sick, go look in the mirror and see how long you can look in the mirror at yourself. Your Ignorant!
