While Anderson covered the Zimmerman trial, I was over at MSNBC. Three weeks ago I would have described Hayes as that dippy know-it-all dork who was the teacher's pet back in your 10th grade social studies class. Although I love Anderson, I'm liking Hayes more and more because his show has more of the news I'm interested in hearing about.

On Monday I missed the first 5 minutes. 360 had Zimmerman so I checked out Hayes who was covering Republican strategy on issues like immigration and voting rights. Next was Snowden then a report on the new bill giving border patrol a ton of military hardware.

I did see most of the Arizona firefighters segment and commend Kyung Lah and Gary Tuchman for their reports. The best 360 segment was Anderson talking to Ben Wedeman about Egypt; more time than Monday's show but nonetheless given short shrift.

Hayes also had Egypt last but gave it two very good segments. I clicked back to Anderson near the start of the Ridiculist and heard him say something about 'Watch What Happens Live" and Cher popped up on screen. I was not in the mood for flippant nonsense and headed back to Hayes for a smart panel on Egypt.

Thanks for the ratings info. I looked a little bit further and found the website mediabistro.com which broke down the ratings by hour for the past week (http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/tag/cable-news-ratings). Anderson's 10 PM program all about the Zimmerman trial is doing well in the ratings. So in that light it's understandable why a big chunk of 8 PM also covers the trial.

But I still don't like it. Anderson's emphasis on the Zimmerman trial isn't just making me turn to MSNBC, it's making me a cheerleader for Hayes. And that is so wrong.

Gary Tuchman's interview with the relatives of the firefighting cousins was so heartbreaking--their grief still raw, I'm amazed they agreed to talk.

Regarding the 10 pm hour, Mark Geragos seems completely unhinged, rude and out of control, he really behaved outrageously and horribly--someone on 360 may believe he's an asset to the panel, but really, he's just an a**. Jeffrey Toobin was annoyed and he looked like he was ashamed and embarrassed to be a part of the entire hour. Sunny Hostin may not be everyone's cup of tea, but someone has to speak for the side of the prosecution since AC, the entire panel and 360's coverage of the trial seems to be slanted towards making Zimmerman the victim and Trayvon this "dangerous" suspect who deserved what he got. Zimmerman is on trial, not Trayvon or Rachel Jenteal. Zimmerman is the person who set this all in motion. You can't claim self-defense when you are the one instigating the entire situation. I hope the jury sees this, but history tells me they probably won't.

On a MUCH lighter note, the Ridiculist was one of AC's best.

I forgot to mention that it had to be a wonderful, if not bittersweet moment for AC when he heard his father's voice after so long.
