I was really excited when I saw that Tom Foreman was filling in for Anderson Cooper tonight. WOW! Friday night and we're getting an hour live with Tom Foreman?!?? That delusion lasted for about 10 minutes & then reality took hold when the Keeping Them Honest special started.
Jeffrey Toobin was back again tonight with the Michael Vick dogfighting scandal- this story just won't go away! Vick has been suspended from the NFL indefinitely. Toobin still loves his dog.
David Mattingly reported from the midwest on the massive flooding. The Coast Guard got involved in rescuing a house full of pure bread cats- 63 adult cats plus kittens that had been born since the flood occurred.
Most of the hour was an AC360 Special: Keeping them Honest
The program included:
Congressional earmarks with reports from Drew Griffin and John Zarrella.
David Mattingly's report on anesthesia awareness during surgery. This report is just terrifying to watch. Its incomprehensible that this would be allowed to happen.
Joe Johns story on the overpriced Smithsonian executive
John Zarrella's report on the QuikSCAT Satellite that helps predict a hurricane's path and was supposed to have been replaced by now, but hasn't. If this satellite failed during a major hurricane, how fast do you think it would take them to start pointing fingers?
Tom Foreman's report on ethanol production.
NOLA.com reports that Anderson will be reporting from New Orleans on Wednesday night with an AC360 special "Katrina, Two Years Later: Keeping Them Honest".
Just a reminder, God's Warriors will be reairing on CNN this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday nights. We've posted reviews of the series on All Things CNN.
