360 tuesday was OK. I liked Anderson's interview with Alyssa Rodemeyer. She was very composed and expressed herself very well. Its awful that kids at the homecoming dance were continuing to say mean things about her brother. Those kids are horrible.

Could have done without the Michael Jackson crap. I hope 360 won't waste too much time on this garbage.

Thought Anderson spent way too much time speaking with the sister of the child who took his own life.
And I also thought it was weird that she'd "party" after her own brother's wake.
I understand her parents encouraged her to go, but after her brother commits suicide?
And again 360 is focusing on sexual orientation instead of exposing the suicide of teens in general.(speaking of agendas)
Good seeing Marcia Clark, even if it was on behalf of Michael Jackson.
Always liked her and thought she did an excellent job with OJ even though she had her critics.
Please Chris Christie. We are begging you here in NJ to run for the Presidency...to get you out of the state. You have Christie Whitman talent. So put it to good use for the GOP!
I too, would have liked to have seen David Gergen's reaction to AC's Ridiculist. Maybe next time.

I am so over Michael Jackson and all the play by play on certain court cases - a weekly update at most, better yet, just give us the verdict when it's reached. And replaying reports that have aired two or three times before is a waste of airtime -- and lazy IMO. Adding a minute of top, deosn't make it news. 360 seems to be doing more and more of this lately. If they replay the Bubbles the Chimp segment, I'll know it's time to tune out and never tune back in.

Apparently AC360 is becoming a crime and punishment show -- not really sure there was a single "news" segment in tonight's program other than what was in the two Bulletins. With what's going on on Wall Street, the end of DADT, the UN meetings and Israel/Palestine issue being front and center, the continued brutality in Syria and Libya (a young girl's body was burned and cut into piece - it was covered on John King, but the video was sent to AC360 and Anderson via twitter several times over the weekend - not like they didn't know about it) POTUS meeting with the Black Caucus and what's going on with that jobs bill and budget debate - it's not exactly a slow news cycle.

I'm very disappointed in the story selection on 360 these last couple of weeks. It's not been a slow news time, but perhaps a lazy effort because Anderson is too tied up with talk show meetings, tapings and shopping at Costco with a film crew following him around to be available for AC360 prep and story meetings?

More power to him if he wants to take on a second full time job. Mr. Cooper claims to be a newsman. I'd like that guy to show up on AC360. Let's hope he hones his time management skills and 360 gets more attention?

I admire Anderson's field work and I admire the work he's done on Egypt, Libya, Syria lately. The bullying stories are important, but I, too, wish he would branch out to all types of bullying. AC360 won two awards for their reporting in Haiti, when was the last time we heard a single thing about progress in Haiti? I just hope 360 doesn't suffer due to Anderson's new venture.

Jenn, you're absolutely right.
That Sanjay, in the hospital replay last nite, was very disturbing and something's got to give and it looks as though 360 does not have AC's full attention anymore.
Most of us want the "newman back," not the show host.
