Tuesday's 360 had a good variety of news storeis but not enough of the news in a couple areas. I was two minutes late; Deborah Feyerick was reporting on the ISIS-influenced knife-weilding suspect killed by police near Boston. Also in the first segment was an update on the Savopoulos murder. Anderson talked to Dan Fuentes and the focus was on blood/DNA evidence.

I missed the start of the segment on the woman killed by a lion in a wildlife park in South Africa. Anderson nterviewed Brett Tucker, whose family survived a lion attack but I don't know if was in connection to the recently killed woman. This is the woman who was killed because she had her window open.

Next up was a David McKenzie report on the cruise ship which capsized on the Yangtze River in China and the rescue efforts. There was a Bulletin too. The first two blips in the Bulletin - Sepp Blatter resigns as FIFA President and the Senate passed the NSA Reform bill - should have had full segments.

Anderson said there was new video and photos from the Caitlyn Jenner photo shoot for Vanity Fair magazine. Not much new stuff, what little there was was repeated constantly on half the screen while Anderson talked to Buzz Bissenger. I liked Bissenger's comment on Jenner's other four kids, the ones before he met Kris Kardashian. "I got to tell you they are exceptional kids. They are as different from the Kardashians as you can be, not to knock the Kardashians. They are very grounded, they're very grounded in life." I just wish he had gone ahead and knocked the Kardashians. This Q&A was probably the best part of the show.

Filler segment of the night was Randi Kaye's report "Your Money or Your Dog's Life". A decent report and a problem which does deserve serious attention. However, this report must have been sitting on the shelf for a while. Kaye got her hair cut a few weeks ago. In the report it's longer. This is especially noticeable when Anderson questions Kaye in the studio after the taped (although labelled LIVE) report ends.

The last segment was all about Hillary Clinton's poll numbers, or as the on-screen title phrased it, "A Question of Trust". John King explained the numbers. While there was a poll of how well she'll do againt various GOP candidates, there was no corresponding poll showing how trust-worthy people felt abou the guys in the GOP field.
