I missed all the important stuff in Friday's 360. Tuned in 4 minutes late and couldn't figure out why was the lead story. I was even more confused when Anderson introduced the panel and added that he interviewed them "earlier in the week." Not "earlier today" or "yesterday" but who knows how many days this story was sitting on the back burner until a slow news day came along?

It's great to be concerned about prostitution, human trafficking and minors in the sex industry but shutting down the adult services section of isn't going to change anything. Plenty of other sites on the internet but great advertising for on 360.

Due to finishing cooking I was in and out a lot and also missed most of the political discussion and the start of the murder-by-cop-Chamberlain story. The Feds will investigate? Very important news for the family but I didn't think it needed another long segment.

The reports about the Columbian Secret Service escort and the wild animals were pretty good. I was still stuck wondering about the report, when and how it was put together and why it was first. Later I'll check the transcript for answers.

No mention of his appearance on David Letterman's show Fri night?

The only reason I could imagine they would make the Backpage story the lead report is because it's a provocative story and there were a lot of pics of scantily clad women and 360 is having major ratings problems, I guess it's an attention getter, but it probably won't work for them. I didn't think it fit for the top story.

@Jaanza Not sure why was the lead story, but it was taped Thursday, so it wasn't days old. Nicholas Kristof is a great guest and people that follow him know he's done a lot of reporting on human trafficking abroad. The 360 website had it as Thursday's lead topic, but it must have been bumped for the awful War on Women opening mess.

I was happy that AC360 had Paul Krugman on. He's an intelligent guest. David Gergen I could do without these days. Paul pushed back so it was a pretty good segment. (No Ari Fleischer - thank you.) Paul is often a guest on This Week on Sunday mornings and I enjoy his perspective.

There was new video released in the Chamberlain story and I found this segment interesting compared to Thursday night's way too long coverage of the topic.

At Anon - Anderson's appearance on David Letterman will be posted soon.
