Live on the Border

Anderson Cooper was live from the US Mexico border near San Diego and opened Tuesday's program with two breaking news stories.

INSIDE NEW BORDER DRUG TUNNEL, 20+ tons of marijuana seized: A breaking news report by Cooper from outside San Diego


INSIDE NEW BORDER TUNNEL, Reaches an estimated depth of 90 feet: AC interviews Michael Uneuzta (Special agent in charge, ICE Homeland Sec. Investigations)

PENTAGON: LET GAYS SERVE OPENLY, Review recommends Congress repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Discussion with Richard Socarides (Fmr. Sr. Advisor to Pres. Clinton) and Nancy Pfotenhauer (Fmr. Sr. Economic Advisor to RNC)

360 Bulletin: Randi Kaye

VIRTUAL FENCE A VIRTUAL DISASTER: A discussion with Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D. CA) and Fred Burton (STRATFOR)

WIKILEAKS FOUNDER ON MOST WANTED LIST, Assange has called accusations a smear campaign: Jeff Toobin speaks to the legalities of this case

THE RidicuList:

Not sure what to expect for tomorrow's 360. Is AC still in CA, back in NYC, prerecorded or with a sub? Guess we'll know when we know!


ATA would like to congratulate Erica Hill on her promotion at CBS's The Early Show. On January 3rd Erica will pass her duties as news reader onto Jeff Glor and take the title of co-host, replacing Maggie Rodriguez. Harry Smith will be replaced by Erica's weekend co-anchor Chris Wragge.
We always knew Erica was destined for great things and wish her the best of luck with her new position.

The only good part of 360 was Anderson showing us the tunnel. It seems like each one Anderson crawls through is more elaborate than the last one.

I really did enjoy the tunnel segment, but it just seems like a waste of $$ to send Anderson and a crew out there for a 5 minute segment.

I think AC will probably have business in LA...just a guess and this segment on the tunnel was a follow up. It was interesting as far as it went, but didn't care for the rest of the 360 programming.
Switched to Lawrence who was interviewing Jennifer Grey and how DWTS became political. She seemed quite timid and didn't want to talk Palin, but I kept thinking, now that's something AC should be doing. At least O'Donnell's show took some thought and wasn't slapped together, bouncing from one subject to another, with little depth.
I knew Erica would do great things.
Always said she and AC had great chemistry and AC should have followed her to CBS...and but Fox??

Congrats to Erica!! She deserves it.

Just wanted to make a comment from yesturday's comments....

Anderson's show is syndicated which means local channels in each city choose whether they want to show it or not. In some cities it may be a Fox affiliate but that does not mean it has anything to do with with Fox News Channel. It also may be shown on a CBS,NBC or ABC affliate. The people that are syndicating the show is Warner Brothers, which is part of TimeWarnerAOL which owns CNN. Warner Bros owns the show and runs it, it has nothing to do with Fox.

Anderson show was good. I watched the tunnel part with interest. How they got away with it is surreal.

Congrats to Erica Hill on her promotion.

Last night's show was the best I've seen in a while in my opinion. I loved the tunnel bit. Anderson really gets into those you can tell!

Anderson will be back in NY tonight. He was spotted by several people this morning at the airport headed back home. He was seen at the Jamba Juice bar by one person who said he tipped the guy running it when you aren't even supposed to. The man is just too nice!

@ Judy...DWTS and Jennifer Gray is not news. If AC had that mess on 360 I'd turn it in a heart beat. That is more Larry King-ish to me and shouldn't be on a serious news show.

Will Kathy Griffin be on NYE with Anderson this year?

The repeat at 5 this morning Anderson said he would see us tonight from NY.

The NYPost is reporting that Jon Klein did not want Erica Hill to leave CNN. They said she was "sassy and is now having the last laugh."
Good for her, and she also has a job Mr.Klein...something you don't.
