Because of Kathy Griffin, I missed the entire first segment. A few minutes before 360 started, I was on the upstairs computer browsing through Gawker. Gawker had an article on Griffin leaving 'Fashion Police'. It turned out to be a long article and I had to read all the comments also. Many of the commenters, like me, do not like Griffin and I enjoyed reading the comments with the same opinion. However, I did think a few of them took things too far by posting photos of Griffin's face with the face of Katherine Helmond from the movie 'Brazil, the photo in which her face is stretched to a horrendous extreme.
Could someone else fill in what the first segment was all about?

The second segment was on the shooting in Mesa AZ by guy with Neo-nazi ties. I didn't catch who did the report. The rest of the segment was on the death threats on Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy. Jim Acosta's report was labelled LIVE but I think it was the same one I saw earlier on 'The Situation Room'.

Next was Randi Kaye's report on a Dallas policeman fatally shooting a mentally ill man holding a screwdriver. There was a panel with Dan Bongino, Areva Martin and Dennis Root to discuss and analyze.

I saw some of Jean Cesarez' report on Robert Durst and his wife Kathie's disappearance and presumed death. Mostly I watched Hayes cover the California drought and the southwest U.S. water wars.

The report and Q&A by Max Faster about Prince Charles and Camilla's visit to the U.S. and Duchess Kate upcoming due date was alright but I would have liked it so much better if it was Richard Quest instead. Why isn't Quest the go-to guy for all things British?

The best thing about the Ridiculist was Blitzer's deadpan delivery of corny 80's sitcom theme song lines. I also liked the ending about everyone on CNN copying Anderson's glasses, Blitzer 'It's happening now."

Dan Bongino was being a rude jerk towards Areva Martin in their segment and Anderson should've called him on it.

Deadpan Blitzer is quite funny.
