Monday's 360 was a better variety of news but I still spent a fair amount of time with Hayes.

The story of Hannah Anderson was important but at the start it looked like the same stuff I saw earlier on CNN. Hayes had the ruling on 'stop and frisk' first and he had an especially good panel; first Hayes talked to NYC Councilman Vallone and then to two black men, one a rapper and the other an activist.

Anderson's 'stop and frisk' report and panel had some good moments but Wright irritated me by interrupting a lot. And it was all pundits! Couldn't Anderson have included a young black man who had experienced 'stop and frisk' like the rapper on Hayes' show?

I liked the report of the Floridian hotel and the sinkhole. I could relate because I'm dealing with a sinkhole in the driveway. It's only about the size of a loaf of bread but it's a sinkhole nonetheless.

The reports on Baby Veronica and induced labor linked to autism didn't interest me. Hayes covered the new anti-gay laws in Russia and the possible Olympic boycott, a subject I'd love to see Anderson spend some time on.

Crystal Wright must have sweet little gig for herself being the GOPBlackChick who makes her living maligning the entire African-American community and saying the things that some believe about them but wouldn't dare say on television. Did 360 dig deeper into her history before they booked her? There's an
eye-opening article online on Wright and let's just say she's not exactly who she professes to be. Maybe the 360 bookers weren't aware of this or maybe they were and didn't care because they wanted someone controversial on the panel. I agree with Jaanza in that they should've had someone on who experienced being stopped and frisked--that would've been preferable to the inflammatory Wright, IMO. Thank goodness Charles Blow and Mark Geragos were on to bring some sanity into the discussion. I did like when AC spoke up about the type of criminality that was occurring even in his tony neighborhood when he was growing up.
