The Benghazi segment was mildly interesting only for Arwa Damon's comments on the attack site. She also mentioned the site was too compromised for an FBI investigation and no one knows exactly what happened. At first Fran Townsend sounded like she still wanted an FBI investigation but later said it would be very risky for FBI investigators to be in Benghazi. Much of the rest of the segment was stuff we've heard already.

"Overhyped Obama Video?" Yes, it was. At the start of this segment the graphic over Anderson's shoulder was Obama and the words "Debate Eve Surprise". How could it be a surprise if the video - of Obama talking about Rev. Wright - is five years old, was dissected ad nauseum in 2008 and available on YouTube all this time?
Republicans are dredging this up to divert attention away from Romney gaffes and Anderson did his best Sean Hannity impersonation by giving this attention. Begala and Borger both said the economy and unemployment were more important. Erickson stupidly said the media hadn't vetted Obama back in 2008; Anderson stood up for his profession. We all remember the flak Obama received in 2008 because of Wright.

The best segment was the debate panel with Patrick Millsaps and Alan Schroeder; two guys I've never seen before but they had a great discussion about tomorrow's debate. I hope to see them again.

Thanks for including the video of Anderson on CBS Early Show. It was a nice interview. At first it seemed like Anderson was there just to promote the daytime show but later he spoke quite a bit about CNN. However at the end of the interview, the host said "'Anderson Live' is on weekdays so check your local listings". I know the daytime show needs to be promoted but come on! Just a couple seconds to mention 360?

Gloria Borger was correct when she said that the "new" video of President Obama will only push people back into their corners--it changes nothing. It was a waste of airtime--you would think AC360 see Drudge and back away slowly, but other networks seemed to think it was newsworthy. Considering that Anderson never let up on Rev. Wright back in 2008, I guess it's not surprising that he would want to look into this pointless farce. I think most people know all about President Obama by now and either they approve or don't.

Benghazi seemed like more talk about what they DON'T know.

If Anderson says once more, "he likes exercising new muscles and variety in his life,"once more, and has every line rehearsed and rehashed, I will throw something at my computer screen.
Someone like Gayle King needs to finally challenge his answer, which he has given a dozen times, and say "Anderson, not all our muscles are as strong or as flexible."
But all they do is giggle and after he leaves, probably shake their heads and say, "I just don;t get him." Because we don't, and neither do they.
It's time for the media to start keeping each other honest.
