Tuesday's first segment was excellent; a look at the situation with North Korea and Kyung Lah in South Korea explaining the situation. Personally, I think Kim Jong Un is just strutting and won't actually do anything. Then he'll tell his people he's a real tough guy who made the US back down.

I liked Anderson's interview with the two students from the Texas university campus, the scene of the crazed stabbing spree. Of course more attention was given to Maida but Anderson commended them both.

Yes, it's ironic that Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly still enjoy guns after she was a shooting victim. Nevertheless, the segment dragged. I channelsurfed and found 'Hell's Kitchen' to be more interesting. I did see several minutes of Anderson's interview with Sen. Risch. At first it seemed dumb for Anderson to ask and for Risch to explain about killing the background check bill with a filibuster. But later I realized that some viewers might not have paid attention in 11th grade Social Studies and knew how the process worked.

Back and forth between 360 and HK.

Two stories in the Bulletin could have been segments: Obama approving aid to Syrian opposition and the new Dow record. I enjoyed the banter between Anderson and Isha about Nutella and would just like to point out to Isha that nobody has ever stolen 5000 jars of Marmite.

I'd also like to clarify something I wrote yesterday. I wrote that Arkansas law enforcement were following orders and keeping reporters away from the oil spill. I should have added those orders are coming from Exxon. This includes restrictions on flying over the oil spill.

ATA, is 'Anderson Live' in repeats? Airing shows pre-taped back in February? Just not worth mentioning? I did enjoy a few of the 'First 15's posted here.

Anderson certainly made Sen. Risch look ridiculous.

I'm too tired right now to write a longer review. I just wanted to second Aries Moon. Anderson made Sen. Risch look like a complete fool. I almost (but not really) felt sorry for the guy. Or it was second hand embarrassemnt.
