Another okay 360 on Wednesday.

The best part was in the political segment with Ari Fleischer and Cornell Betcher. Betcher remarked on "radical" Republicans proposing "radical" changes and Fleischer got all offended by that but Betcher stood his ground on calling the proposals "radical" like ending Medicare. Wolf then asked Fleischer about some Republicans calling Prexident Obama a socialist and all Fleischer could say was that he himself never called Obama a socialist.

Congratulations to Anderson for the Peabody Award for CNN Heroes; nice to see good work programming like that get acknowledged.

CNN Heroes is one of the best things CNN has ever produced and I'm so glad it has received this prestigious award. Fareed Zakaria's work and the coverage of the Arab Spring are also both richly deserving of the Peabody Award.

Cornell Belcher is absolutely right, today's Republican party are nothing BUT extremists with the type of backward thinking and cruel policy positions they take.

I was just wondering - is Anderson considered to be a part of the Arab Spring coverage. I know he was only in Egypt for a few days, but that was pretty intense when he did two shows locked in a hotel room.

Heroes is the only program left that AC actually still does well.
Let's see how he messes this up next year.
