Anderson comes in at number 24 of Ask Men's Most Influential Men's list. They write:
Anderson Cooper has never been one to shy away from covering a dangerous story, so it was no surprise to see the CNN anchor in the heart of Tahrir Square in Cairo, covering the chaos of the spring revolution that would eventually topple Hosni Mubarak. Cooper was punched in the head 10 times by protesters but made it out of the country avoiding serious injury. It’s a good thing too, because the host of Anderson Cooper 360 (which just took over CNN’s coveted 8 p.m. time slot) recently launched his new syndicated daytime talk show, Anderson. Despite mixed reviews on its first day, the show has since picked up speed -- and viewers. During a year in which the media's lack of ethics was at the forefront of the news, it's more clear than ever that Cooper is one of the most important voices of the 21st century.
