BLOGGER'S COMMENTARY: Not sure why Anderson wasn't anchoring from Chicago tonight when one of the points brought up was how the media wasn't covering the violence in Chicago the way it was in DC, Newtown, etc. The mass shooting took place last night and he certainly had time to hop a plane this morning and be in Chicago in plenty of time to gather some stories and attend the mayor's press conference at 6PM local/7PM ET before anchoring 360. While Isiah Thomas was a good booking Father Pfleger is a controversial figure in Chicago, certainly there were better people to speak on the situation. Instead almost all of tonight's AC360 seemed to be pre-taped with Anderson sitting in the studio doing live segues. The press conference wasn't covered because the segments on the Chicago violence had already been recorded by the time it took place. Guess promotion for Crossfire (Newt was on a panel) and Fareed's program on Sunday (he was on a different panel) and a filler report from Gary Tuchman were more important on this Friday night?
