Blogger's Note:  HBO is airing an 8 part series on the making of the Foo Fighter's new album, Sonic Highways.  They visited 8 cities and spent a week in each one interviewing people about the history of the music in that city.  At the end of the week, they wrote a song for their new album incorporating what they had discovered during the week.  The first episode premiered last Friday and the group was in Chicago.  You don't necessarily need to be a big fan of the Foo Fighters to enjoy learning about the history of the music in a specific city in the series. - Wonz.

Anderson Cooper & A Local Reporter In Ottawa


The Nationalpost.com is reporting:

Anderson Cooper aghast when reporter asks him to take selfie near Ottawa shooting scene

Anderson Cooper scolded a young Sun News contributor for asking him to take a “selfie” near the scene of the Ottawa shooting Wednesday night.

The CNN host flew into Canada’s capital yesterday to report from the National War Memorial where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot dead while serving as an honour guard.

When Cooper took a break from his live coverage, Vandon Gene, who has worked for the Sun News Network for the past six months, asked the American journalist to take a photo with him.

Cooper refused. When Gene continued to urge him to take a picture, an aghast Cooper scolded the young reporter and told him to “have a little respect for what happened here today.”

“No, I will not take a photo with you on a day where someone was killed,” Cooper said. “It seems wildly inappropriate.”

Shortly after the incident, Gene posted a video of the exchange on YouTube.

Gene took to Twitter, Anderson replied a couple of times and later Gene removed the tweets, but it was too late.  It appears Gene's employer saw the tweets and video and Gene is no longer in their employ.  You can read more about the event by clicking here .   Other outlets picked up the story, but this seemed to be the most comprehensive account.

More photos from social media.  Some appear to be taken last night and others today while Anderson was out and about in Canada.   Also - Anderson will be helping anchor The Situation Room today.
