From The ATA Archives: Anderson Cooper in The Democratic Republic of The Congo, October 2006, Part 2


This Sunday we are back for part 2 of Anderson's 2006 trip to The Democratic Republic of The Congo, after a break last week for coverage of the President's Inauguration.  If you missed part 1, you may find it by clicking here.



Today, It's Tuesday, October 3rd and Anderson is reporting from Goma covering some of the stories he promoted in his live shots the previous night.


COOPER: And thanks for joining us. We are in Goma on the far eastern edge of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a county that literally sits near the heart of Africa. Congo shares borders with nine other countries. Its natural wealth includes diamonds, golds and minerals. The wealth is unmatched in Africa, but it is also a country of epic misery, where 70 percent of households are malnourished, two- thirds of people here have absolutely no access to health care. For decades Congo has been a killing field. Take a look. ~

video



COOPER: A wanted rebel leader accused of war crimes and the thing is, he's easy to find. My interview with a general who no one seems willing to arrest. 360 next.



COOPER: One of the biggest problems here in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is that many soldiers, police and other government leaders have a sense of impunity. There's really no responsibility or repercussions for bad behavior. Now it's common for soldiers to lewd and to rape women and yet rarely if ever are they apprehended or punished for that kind of behavior. The U.N. is now here. They have the largest peace keeping operation in U.N. history. The war has ended but still some rebel leaders out there, some militia leaders are refusing to give up their weapons. One of them is a general named Laurent Nkunda, he's a wanted man, there's an arrest warrant out for him. But no one seems so far willing to arrest him even though we were very able to find him very quickly. Take a look.

video




COOPER:  It is not just people, of course, who are suffering here in the Congo. Animals are suffering, as well. We're going to take you to the mountains of the Congo to where some endangered mountain gorillas and lowland gorillas, as well, gorillas with a reputation for being tough guys, are at the mercy of something even tougher. Next on 360. 



COOPER: With an estimated 38,000 people dying here every month from malnutrition and disease, humans in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are obvious victims in this war-torn country. But some of the not so obvious victims are the gorillas of Central Africa, the lowland gorillas and the mountain gorillas. There are several hundred mountain gorillas left, and their lives are threatened. Take a look.

video




Join us next Sunday when we will have more of Anderson's reporting from the Congo; including more on the gorillas.  Until then...

Ratings for the week ended January 13, 2013 ~

From Broadcasting & Cable:
Syndication Ratings: New Year, Big Ratings for Top Talk and Game Shows'Dr. Phil' returns to top of talk chart, while 'Wheel,' 'Jeopardy!' and 'Family Feud' all hit highs

Syndies came roaring back in the week ending Jan. 13, with the repeat-laden holidays finally behind them.

In its return to originals, CBS Television Distribution's Dr. Phil gained 23%, the biggest weekly improvement of any top-ten talk show, averaging a 3.2 live plus same day household rating for the week, according to Nielsen Media Research. Dr. Phil improved 39% over its ratings in the week ended Dec. 30.

Warner Bros.' Ellen also came back to life. Taking over the No. 2 spot, Ellen surged 17% for the week and 13% from the same week last year to a 2.7. Disney-ABC's Live! with Kelly and Michael, which had enjoyed three straight weeks at No. 1, declined just 4% for the week to a 2.6. Sony Pictures Television's Dr. Oz added 13% to hit a new season-high 2.6, tying Live! for third place.

NBCUniversal's Maury perked up 5% to a 2.3. CTD's Rachael Ray receded 6% to a 1.5, in a three-way tie with NBCU's Steve Wilkos, which was unchanged for the week but improved 15% over last year at this time to earn talk's largest year-to-year increase, and NBCU's Jerry Springer, which added 7% for the week. CTD's The Doctors held steady at a 1.4.

Debmar-Mercury's Wendy Williams climbed 18% for the week to a 1.3. Warner Bros.' Anderson Live was unchanged at a 1.2. And Debmar-Mercury's Jeremy Kyle climbed 20%, or one tenth of a ratings point, to a 0.6.

All of the rookie talkers -- except Jeff Probst, which was steady -- also saw gains during the week.

Disney-ABC's Katie clocked its best rating in eight weeks, growing 5% from its previous session to hit a 2.0, its second-highest week ever. Katie scored a big get for Thursday, Jan. 24, with an exclusive with Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, reportedly the victim of an Internet hoax that led him to believe he had a girlfriend who tragically died of leukemia last September.

NBCU's Steve Harvey, now definitely returning for next season and currently being renewed in some markets through 2016, hit a series high, leaping 14% to a 1.6. CTD's Jeff Probst was flat at a 0.8. Twentieth's Ricki Lake added 14% to tie Probst at a 0.8. NBCU's Trisha Goddard jumped 25% to a 0.5.  (please click on link for the full article)
