A Special Edition & Anderson Cooper 360


Anderson Cooper opened a "Special Edition of AC360" by explaining that he was basically filling the 9pmET "time slot for 2 weeks until Piers Morgan got his act together and gets his show on the air."

His first guest was Michael Moore who joked, "I'm your first guest on your new show that will last only two weeks. I'm honored."

360 wasn't very good last nite. Bad story selection. The 9pm hour was better though. Will be interesting too see what direction this 9pm hours goes in the next two weeks.

Thank you for all the downloads and extras...I'm saying this now because I will forget later and the pix of AC and Kathy at the so-called after party is probably what
really happened,cute.
AC's Special Edition was a lot better than his regular program 360
which could have well been on HLN, pure sleeze.
What about important topics like J&J's new discovery of a test that can detect cancer cells in the blood?
There must have been some other topics and content that could have been discussed.
Yes, birds and fish lying dead is not a joke, but the way CNN is reporting it, you would think it was....
AC, Snookie should always be on the ridiculist, and the mere fact that she can read, no less write, is surprising.
I do hope 360 doesn't keep on disappointing in the New Year because AC has extra duties.

Sometimes Anderson is so naive--Michael Moore was correct when he said that the reason for the persistance of birthers and Issa's remark that President Obama is "corrupt" is most likely racism--AC might consider it a "cheap shot" to label folks like the birthers and Issa as racist, but I find it more of a cheap shot and an insult that the President has been relentlessly subjected to the sort of baseless accusations and suspicions that have been thrown at him by birthers and/or Republicans. Some might be sick and tired of hearing it, but it doesn't negate the fact that racism is deeply entrenched and insidious in this country's history and I'm not sure why AC has this tendency to be so dismissive about that. Having said that, I enjoyed the interview--it was lengthy and substantial. Wasn't too interested in Piers or the Pauls. There was very little politics on 360 and although I recognize it's importance, I was kind of relieved to not see any political panel discussions--the other reports weren't especially earth shattering, but they were interesting enough (Kirk Cameron's inclusion had me scratching my head though) and AC's Snooki Ridiculist attack was quite funny.

Thanks for all the pics/clips--a nice bunch of extras.

It was nice to see Anderson back. Loved the Interview with MM. As I have a son who lives in MI. I can say right now there are very few jobs avaible but it is a strong state that will with America get back on it feet and brush it self off.

The second hour I watched on and off. Did catch the redickulist with snooki. I got a kick out of Anderson reading portions of her book it was hystericail.

Probably not the weightiest of topics last night, but certainly an amusing show which is okay with me since next week will have such a heavy focus on where Haiti is now.

It was entertaining to see Kirk Cameron become a trending topic on Twitter last night.

Lisa Bloom hasn't been on CNN/360 lately unless I have missed her. is she still a CNN contributor?

...because when thousands of birds fall from the sky, Kirk Cameron is the first person I think to talk to. SMDH
