I sit here in amazement as yet another abbreviated 360 has concluded. Wednesday's show did offer an exclusive interview with Warren Jeff's oldest sister but there was not much else to get excited about. So rather than focus on the negative I'll just move on.
Steve Sabludowsky of the BayouBuzz posted a brief interview he did with Anderson yesterday, in NOLA, after the ceremony and social at the
In related Andernews today's Denver Westword had some not too kind words for AC and other talking heads in relation to the coverage of the John Karr arrest.
"Granted, plenty of TV talking heads made the same tactical error as the Rocky (Rocky Mountain News), and when the DNA results broke, few pundits were willing to admit it. On the August 28 episode of MSNBC's Scarborough Country, Joe Scarborough, in Mississippi on the eve of the Katrina anniversary, devoted a sizable chunk of his show to a debate between commentators Wendy Murphy and Jeralyn Merritt on the question of whether Lacy is "an idiot." (No conclusions were reached.) The "experts" who dished that evening with MSNBC's Cosby, CNN's Anderson Cooper, Fox News's Greta Van Susteren and her colleague Sean Hannity largely acted as if they'd known Karr was a kook all along, but neglected to censure themselves for lavishing so much attention on an obvious nutball. Not so comedian Bill Maher. Speaking with CNN's Larry King, Maher said ratings-hungry execs were desperate for "any excuse to show footage of [JonBenet] prancing around in a cowboy outfit like a little whore."

Have you been watching The Situation Room this week? Wolf is on vacation and John King has been hosting. I really enjoy his anchoring and even though TSR is on for 3 hours a day I think it has less repeated segments than 360. Opps, sorry a negative comment slipped out. I would really like to see John get his own time slot, but with John Roberts waiting patiently I guess it isn't going to happen for JK.
And finally I've got a treat for all of you. Krissy__ from Live Journal has agreed to share one of her beautiful computer wallpapers of Anderson. This will brighten the darkest day.
