The Daily Show had a little fun the other night asking why reporters had to stand in the water to report on a flood. Here's the clip ~

I immediately thought of Anderson standing in water, reporting on flooding from Hurricane Ike back in 2008 and pointing out that a snake was in the water close to him. Here's the clip ~

@THE ATA TEAM: Thanks for your continued hard work in bringing us all the updates that were missed when Blogger shut down for "maintenance."
John King did an exceptional job filling in for AC.
Let's see how long Mr.Cooper has this new bike before it's stolen for the third time.
And even though I don't watch the show, Ashton Kutcher was an excellent pick to replace "what's his face."
Hostile wives? Really? bin Laden's wives didn't think he was treated fairly? What a shame. Let's see how we can BEST use them.
Prepare yourselves hostile wives...
you haven't seen OUR hostility in action yet. Ten years is a long time to wait and revenge is sooo sweet.

Thanks for posting the clip of Anderson in the water mentioning the snake and dead rat. At least he has a sense of humor about it.

John King is my sub of choice. I don't think viewers realize he's got a great sense of humor and is one of the sharpest on-air people at CNN.
