The post debate AC360 was loaded with pundits and opinion. John King assisted Anderson Cooper with the rundown. Gloria Borger, David Gergen, Cornell Belcher, Tom Foreman and Dana Loesch were the night's BPTOT and Andy Card, Robert Gibbs and Ron Paul were interviewed by AC.
Anderson Cooper did a 5 part interview with Mike Ahern when he was in Indianapolis late last month. We'll be posting one part each night this week. Here's segment 1:
Also AP Television Writer David Bauder wrote a piece about AC360 then and now. He quoted EP Charlie Moore as saying the old red 360 would never work today. Bauder writes "Instead, Cooper and Moore have fashioned a program that's one part breaking news and one part "truth-telling" squad and it is building momentum." He quoted Anderson as saying "I'm not an opinion person," Cooper said. "I'm not interested in being a conservative anchor or a liberal anchor, a Republican anchor or a Democratic anchor. I'm much more interested in trying to look at things at multiple angles and trying to walk in other people's shoes and understand things from a different vantage point."

While I'm not sure I totally agree with Mr. Moore that the old red 360 wouldn't work today I do know that times have changed. I'll leave you with a little extra from the ATA Vault that illustrates just how much. Long gone is the innocent babe-in-the-woods Cooper who pretended to try and email the POTUS. These days he probably has a more direct option.
