Anderson Cooper 360 on Wednesday, August 24, 2016 + Live with Kelly & Late Show with Stephen Colbert


Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 from the NYC studio.  Anderson opened the program saying he would have an exclusive live interview with Hillary Clinton.  About half way through the second hour, Hillary Clinton phoned into AC360 for a conversation:

The follow up discussion with David Axelrod was interesting and then the panel seemed to go off the rails and Anderson gave up and threw to Don Lemon::

Anderson was a guest co-host on Live with Kelly this (Wednesday) morning.  While the program is dark for 4 weeks (until September 6th) Anderson and Kelly taped a new host chat and travel trivia during one of his previous guest co-host stints.  The guest segments were all repeats.

The truth behind Trump's finances  was a segment that was recorded Monday, but never made it to air.  It was posted on the Anderson Cooper 360 website.  CNN's Anderson Cooper speaks with Susanne Craig, Boris Epshteyn and Timothy O'Brien about Donald Trump's finances:

Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday, August 23, 2016


Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 from the NYC studio, the first 40 minutes being the promotion of Donald Trump with Trump's new campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway.  While Anderson said AC360 reached out to the Clinton campaign with an offer to appear on the program and they declined, he did not say exactly when the offer was made so there's no way to know if it was logistically an option, if they were offered another date if it that was the issue or they just plain declined to come on the program.    We say promotion of Trump because we've seen Anderson go after people with facts when he wants to and tonight feisty Anderson wasn't in the studio.



Anderson Cooper is scheduled to be a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tomorrow night, Wednesday, August 24th.

Anderson Cooper 360 on Monday, August 22, 2016


Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 from the NYC studio.   Anderson pretty much lost control of the panel tonight.  Kayleigh McEnany told a bold face lie and neither Anderson or the producers corrected her at the time or later in the program as Anderson sometimes does.  McEnany said there were 2,000 homicides in Chicago this year, the actual number is 440 to date.  While the number is higher than last year, McEnancy shouldn't be stating as facts such gross exaggerations.  It makes one wonder about the rest of the numbers she likes to rattle off.   And Mr. Lewandowski needs to answer the questions he's asked if he appears on a panel, not pivot to something he wants to talk about to make his boss look better.  (Yes, that's right, Corey drew a $20,000 check from Trump in July for "strategy consulting" while on the CNN payroll.)  Conflict of interest?  Ethical journalism, CNN?

It was nice to see Jame Carville back on AC360.  While he was promoting his book his discussion with Anderson about the Clinton Foundation was the type of thing that has sorely been missing on AC360.   Enjoy!

Thanks to a "head's up" from a reader - From The Advocate on Sunday, August 14th:


Anderson Cooper Adorably Reminds Us It's 'National Gay Uncles Day'

If you forgot that today is National Gay Uncles Day — a day for "guncles" — Anderson Cooper has given the internet an adorable reminder.

The famed out journalist shared on Instagram a video of himself and nephew Martin on the Quadrado in Trancoso in Brazil. Maybe it’s the CNN anchor’s TV skills, but he really nailed the cinema of the moment.

There are thousands of posts today using the hashtag #guncles. Here is Cooper’s post, plus a series from everyday folks who are also showing that families come in a rainbow of varieties.  (Please click on link to read the entire article and see the other posts from "everyday folks.")
