A mixed 360 on Monday. Anderson again started by stating he's "not supporting Democrats or Republicans...we're just reporting the facts...unlike other cable channels..." Maybe it's 360's new slogan?

The opening segment on the U.N. disability treaty and Republican's voting against it was excellent. Home-schooling-lobbyist Farris was a little smarter than Sen. Lee last week (that's incredibly faint praise). When Anderson asked about U.N. bureaucrats getting involved in American parents and their children, Farris said "Open your eyes!" but instead of answering the question with valid facts, he dissed Robert Dole. I loved all of Toobin's comments especially the one calling the spin of the treaty antagnonists was "inventive paranoid fantasy... It's not reality."

The segment on the fiscal cliff wasn't as interesting except for Anderson flubbing the pronunciation of "eligibility age" several times in a row.

Anderson didn't ask an important question when talking to Sanjay Gupta about the HIV cancer cure. Gupta said that the patients got very sick when treated with this cure. Anderson should have asked, "More sick than from receiving radiation and chemotherapy?"

Both Peter Bergen and Robert Baer weren't need for the discussion about "Zero Dark Thirty" because they totally agreed with each other. It was a pretty good report but you didn't need two guys saying the same thing.

I would have rather seen a segment about the disgraced Australian DJs rather than a segment about the singer Jenni Rivera. Her death is very sad but hardly big news. As Anderson stated most Americans had no idea who she was.

Thanks for 'The Talk' clip, the sex talk between Sharon Osbourne and Anderson was a bit too silly but the rest of the segment was really good, an intelligent discussion about using disrespectful language, temporary sun blindness, the Gaza bomb blast and mom Gloria. Loved the question about the Vanderbilt jeans in the '70s and Anderson's answer, "Well, it paid for my college." However, I'm not thrilled to hear he'll do NYE with Kathy Griffin again.
