Good reporting on 360 Friday night with in depth coverage of the Dharun Ravi verdict, gas prices and the President (Fareed Zakaria always elevates the discourse--AC sited a couple of credible sources which confirmed that the President can't do much to affect the price of gas, but it was still interesting to hear how Stephen Moore would interpret it all). The tornado and fallen soldier stories were heartbreaking and the turn of events for the KONY filmmaker was just bizarre. I also enjoyed seeing Miguel Marquez on 360 again and a fun Ridiculist, but I miss Jeff Toobin's legal insight on 360, Sunny Hostin is ok, but Jeff's on a whole other level, IMO.

The Ravi verdict is an important story but I was surprised it was the lead story. Maybe because Anderson got interviews with two of the Jurors? (I was on jury duty, a DUI case and no one from the media asked to interview me.)

@Aries Moon - Given the choice between Jeffrey Toobin and Sunny Hostin, I would choose Toobin too.

The report and discussion about gas prices and politics was the best part of the show. Zakaria and Moore had a great discussion and covered a lot of ground. I loved how, at the end, Anderson segued to Zakaria to promote his upcoming health special but Zakaria wasn't done talking about the global gas economy and finished that topic before mentioning his special health program.

The report about the tornado was on 360 because the couple had video. Without the video, the story about a tornado in Indiana wouldn't even be mentioned in the Bulletin. The story about the soldier's picture being used for a dating website was sad but not shocking. The KONY guy... well, you can make a viral video about Ugandan warlords but you can be young and stupid at the same time.

The Ridiculist was okay.
