CNN's two Kings, John and Larry, are divided over a hug. White House correspondent John King said he felt "shame and horror" while watching Larry King hug President Bush at a pre-inaugural party where the talk-show host was serving as host. CNN now says it was a mistake to let Larry King participate in the event, which was telecast live on CNN Jan. 18. John King made his comments in an internal e-mail sent to his bosses the day of the event.
