Jessica Yellin was in the anchor chair for Tuesday night's AC360. I'm a big fan of Ms. Yellin's and any other night I would have been glued to the program BUT with the Olympics and American Idol competing with 360 even Anderson Cooper himself wouldn't have gotten my attention. Let me qualify that.....if it was AC doing naked news then you bet ya, but since that didn't happen here's a very abbreviated rundown of the hour.
- The Toyota hearings before Congress, Drew Griffin doing the follow-up discussion
- A second segment on Toyota this time with Joe Johns
- Rhode Island school firings, Randi Kaye reporting. The District Superintendent did the follow-up discussion and Digger Deeper with a fired counselor from the high school
-Dana Bash talked with Yellin about the legislative process called Reconciliation the Dems are planning on using
-Broken Government segment with Ali Velshi and Peter Beinhart
- Gary Tuchman was live from Haiti with a happy ending to the orphan story he brought us last night. The women and orphans are on their way to the United States, probably in large part to Tuchman's story.
I want to send Wonz a great big thank you for capping and clipping Anderson's appearance on Charlie Rose last night.
We've clipped the AC portions of the Charlie Rose Show, if you want to watch the entire program from last night you can at the program's website.
Anderson has mentioned several times in the last week that he picked up Aristide's
Revenge while in Haiti so I'm guessing he was in his jammies on Tuesday night watching television and trying to feel better. Or he could have just as easily been off on another great adventure. Either way I hope to see him back in the anchor chair next week when the Olympics are over and he only has to compete with AI for my attention. ~Phebe
