8/5/14 saw quite a bit of earlier news -8pm E There lots on Ebola Anderson has ss I understand had quite an interest in this disease which certainly has settlec in with a bang whether this ceasefire will hold is hard to say I miss Anderson talking to some of the people but the atmosphere there may not be conducive to that CNN has had several journalists in the area . Wolfe was there I think foyr a week at least &assume Anderson et al will b there at least 7-8 xdays. They are really putting resources there Wonder why Anderson is not wearing his kevlar you never what might erupt. Is it my error or has anyone noticed Andersons left eye looks like it is being a problem. With all resources being put in this area AC should bring in some good ratings

There was a good variety of news stories in Tuesday's 360. Although Anderson was in Jerusalem, he covered a lot more than just the ceasefire in the Isreael/Hamas war.
Afghanistan is back as a top story with the killing of U.S. General Greene. Jim Sciutto provided most of the details and then Philip Mudd and Lt.Col. Rick Francona had more on what's it like in Afghanistan, working with the locals and possible motives behind the attack which killed Greene.
Randi Kaye filed a report (not LIVE despite the label in the corner) on attacks on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan in the past. It was a standard report but one line stood out. There was footage of Prince Harry as a soldier and Kaye stating '...Harry Wales...far from the attack site...but two American soldiers were killed...' Why did Harry need to be included or pointed out in any way?

I was in the kitchen and mixed the start of the second segment. Thanks, ATA, for posting the Martin Savidge piece here; lots of good information on conditions today in Gaza. Anderson had good interviews with Lt.Col. Lerner of Israel and David Kirkpatrick from the New York Times. Just a little odd not to have the usual Palestinian spokesman on the show, you know, equal time policy and all that.

Ukraine is also back on the stove. Fighting with the rebels has intensified and Anderson spoke with Nick Paton Walsh regarding the latest. Walsh was observing almost blackout conditions because of gunfire nearby and was almost whispering at times. As soon as the Q&A wrapped up but before the camera was shut off, Walsh turned off the very minimalistic light he had on.

Is everybody except me fascinated and curious about ebola? There were two more segments on ebola but I barely paid attention. In the first segment Anderson talked with Sanjay Gupta and there was a David McKenzie report on the Doctors Without Borders group working in the ebola-infected areas.
Next segment there was a Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci. I can't get into this topic and until ebola shows up on my doorstep, I just can't believe it will be a huge deal in this country.

Tuesday's show was pretty good. However, instead of the last two ebola segments I watched Hayes' sub cover the GOP and immigration, sparked by a video of Rep. King wrangling with two Mexican 'DREAM' immigrants, a wrangle Rand Paul ran away from. Although immigration isn't on the front burner right now, it was fun to see how fast Paul could get away from not just the two immigrants but also the burger he just bit into.

Philip Mudd's sharp, cautious and smart analysis has been a welcome addition on 360--his theories about the Afghan soldier who shot General Greene and the possible motivation was fascinating to hear.

What's interesting to me about the Ebola story is how the experimental drugs seem to have brought the two victims back from the brink of death--it's pretty amazing so far.

Very impressive work being done on Israel/Gaza by Anderson and the 360 staff--a wide variety of guests and strong interviews conducted by Anderson for the two hour program.
