Overall another very good 360 but I have mixed feelings about the time spent talking about "possible suspects on video" and speculations about one particular bag on the curb. If the police and FBI are scrutinizing one specific person or a specific bag that moved from a specific spot, then yes, that has to be reported. However, so much is still not known and it felt like Anderson and others were grasping at these straws. Then again, that may be what the police are doing also.

I didn't like the video, shown several times, of the blast and choatic aftermath (running away). Timely and relevant but the last 80% of the video looked like it could induce an epileptic fit.

Anderson had a great inteview with Gov. Patrick and later with the four firefighters, these two segments were the best parts of Wednesday's show.

Maybe tomorrow or Friday there could be some news from London. The London Marathon is Sunday, April 21, and they've been looking very closely at what happened in Boston and are taking extra security measures.

Thanks for the extra photos of Anderson in Boston.

Thank you for the clip of the interview! :)

Otherwise, not much to smile about. What on earth is going on over there right now? One horrible event after the other.
I was impressed that Anderson sort of single-handedly managed to redeem CNN with great reporting tonight but I almost hope that he will go to Texas and conver the accident there instead of staying in Boston, treading water and covering the POTUS and FLOTUS visit.

I think it would also be nicer for the people there if Anderson talked to them instead of some of the insensitive klutzes that works for CNN...
