I channel-surfed so much I'm not really qualified to post anything about Thursday's 360. But has that ever stopped me before?

Except for a minute and a half at the end to promote "Heroes", 360 was about ebola. Ebola ebola ebola. Ebola over here, ebola over there, ebola everywhere. Although I did channel-surf a lot, I did note that Anderson talked to Louise (a relative of Thomas, the Texan infected with ebola) in two segments (ATA has posted those).
And then the expert trio of Sanjay Gupta, David Quammen and Dr. Erwin Redemer throughout the night. Arwa Damon (I think that was her) and Gary Tuchman each had an ebola angle report.
A report (by ?) about contagious diseases (LIKE EBOLA) on airplanes had a good start but the report stopped dead in its tracks, a technical snafu. This report never came back, at least not in the first hour.
For comparison's sake, Hayes covered ebola in his first segment, later mentioned the NBC cameraman and that was it.

One interesting tidbit: Anderson reported on the NBC cameraman infected with ebola about a minute or two before Hayes did. It made me wonder how well the NBC news brass treats little brother MSNBC.

All ebola all the time. Ebola is getting the MH370 treatment. Therefore, thank fuzzy pink bunnies in rainbows, I got remote control.

Ebola overload on 360, but after listening to AC's interview with Louise, city, state, federal medical officials better get on the ball and get those contaminated bed sheets out of her apartment ASAP.

I thought the interview with Louise was excellent, thoughtful, compassionate but very scary. The government IS NOT doing their job. WHY is Louise's daughter and perhaps her children NOT quarantine when they have been in contact with Thomas? How do we get the government to act before this gets any worse?

@Anon 3:57 - It's Texas, what should we expect? Looks like the media pressure worked and the local government agencies are finally getting their act together.

After viewing and hearing AC's interview with Louise, I wouldn't want to be living in her apt. complex. I feel for her, but I also feel sorry for those neighbors around her.
And this is the reason the US should have stopped anyone flying from any of the infected areas in Africa, BEFORE, it reached our shores.
Some may say that this is not a practical solution, however, if you really look deeply into this problem, it is racial.
So we did the "politically correct thing" and now what??
