Good 360. I hope NY is spared form Irene. My good friend lives in Boston and her mom lives on Cape Cod. She's really freaking out about the storm and is worried about her mom. My thoughts are with everyone who will be affected by the storm.

For once in a long time I'm not in a path of a hurricane! Anyone that is, I hope all goes well!

judy said...

Thank you Teddy because I am in the path of Irene and have also visited Battery Park many times.
So if we were all watching 360 we saw our great Governor Chris Christie in his usual flamboyant manner, dictating orders:
"Get the hell off the beach folks!"
His reference to those in harms way at the Jersey shore.
Found all the info enlightening from AC to Chad Meyers and am hoping that we don't lose power, but whatever will be, will be.
Anderson was really trying to interpret Chad Meyers weather predictions in the most positive light, but no matter, Irene will hit the NY area with vengeance at this time tomorrow and into Sunday.

I have been a fan of Anderson for a long time and I am sorry to say I think he has moved on doing hurricanes, even with it in his own backyard, doesn't look like he is going to cover it.

I guess with a daytime show, that is the way things will be now. There really isn't any way he can go do field work and tape daytime shows at the same time. I know he said that they might cover breaking news on the daytime show, but people who make plans to go to NYC to see him, will not appreciate it if he is not in the studio for them to see.

I think it will just be a matter of time before he moves on from CNN.

Sorry for the rant, but it was I am feeling right now.

Thank you

Been checking the lie weather cams throughout NY and most of the ones in the city are either offline or have not been updated for a couple of hours. It is raining in the Hamptons and quite hard.glyss

Don't know if it is true or not, but Cable News is saying Anderson will be on tomorrow at 5 am.

Dorothy said...

Seems he will be going live at 6 am Sunday morning covering things in NYC. You guys give up on him too easily.

Dorothy: Are you a relative?
You seem overly sensitive to every word. There's fanworship and then there's FANWORSHIP!

Dorothy said...

@Anoynmous 12:35am - nope, not a relative and probably just only a "fan" not "FANWORSHIPER", however, I do enjoy watching news and I enjoy Anderson as a journalist. I just am one who is here to follow along with someone I admire and to do that without constantly badging or judging what the person is trying to accomplish. I guess I don't understand all of the negative and judging people before the story even has a chance to play out. If I seemed over sensitive or even a FANWORSHIPER I really am sorry. I guess I just have to learn more patience with people that lean on the negative side. Hope that answers your question.

Thank you for commenting. I think you reflect what a lot of us think, but the attacks by the naysayers keep us from commenting. I don't understand why people who obviously only want to find fault with Anderson, keep visiting and commenting on a site about him/his work.

Constructive criticism about 360 is one thing, but the constant bashing is annoying. If you are not a fan, move on...
