It was a very good 360, lots of stories and different angles concerning the Sikh Temple shooting. The most interesting and unexpected segment was the interview with the former skinhead TJ Leyden.

Second place goes to the interview with the Kaleka family in their home. The Kaleka son was interviewed by satellite on Rachel Maddow's show; also a good interview but didn't have the same closeness and caring element as Anderson's interview. Sometimes you just gotta be there.

Although all of the segments about the Sikh Temple tragedy were done very well, 360 could have devoted some time to other news stories of the day. Other viewers may be keenly interested in hearing everything about the shooting but I get burned out hearing the same topic for the whole hour (maybe I have ADHD).

Thanks for the photos from Ohio. I wonder what the '60 Minutes' story is about. I wonder if Anderson went to Milwaukee because he was already in the midwest.

I'm glad AC went to cover the shooting at the Sikh temple, there have been complaints that this story hasn't gotten the attention that it should, but 360 did a good job of looking at all aspects of the situation - AC's interview with the wife and son of the President of the Sikh temple was particularly well done. It's sickening that so many of these incidents are occurring.

Nice Twitter pics, thanks for posting.

I thought Anderson's interview with the Sikh leader's family was great. He let them talk and didn't interrupt unlike other reporters might do. Then when he said he was being criticized for doing the interview,but then said they only go where they are asked it was a great comeback. I saw the same man interviewed by another network and they just stuck a mic in his face and fired questions at him rapid fire.

That seems the way the media works now is not to let people express themselves in a way that will help them. Anderson on the other hand let the family talk and this may help in the grieving process, you can cry until you're all cried out, but being able to talk about them keeps their spirit and good works alive.

Death ends a life, not a relationship.

Anderson did do a great job with all his interviews. I like Erin Burnette, but I don't think this kind of interviewing is her forte. She didn't seem as comfortable with the people she interviewed as well as Anderson. Maybe the longer she goes she will get better at it.

He has been to DC and now Ohio for 60 Minutes. Wonder if it is the same story or two different ones

Thank you.

So Anderson finally arrived in Wisconsin...but not to cover the working class and their ordeal with Scott Walker.
Sorry.
Unless it's a heartbreaking tragedy we don't see him.
This was done for ratings and weeping, nothing more.
