A genuinely breathtaking report--the GoPro cameras or whatever was used made it feel like you were leaping off of the Eiger right along with JT Holmes and flying through the air--it got my heart racing a bit just watching it.

AGREE THAT THE REPORT WAS BREATHTAKING TO WATCH IN HD, HOWEVER DOES ANDERSON ALWAYS BEGINS HIS REPORTS
WITH "WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND?" IT SEEMS NO MATTER WHERE HE IS, TALKING TO TERRORIST VICTIMS
IN PARIS WHO SURVIVED THE ATTACK: WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND? OR WATCHING SOMEONE SKY DIVE, "AS YOUR
STANDING THERE, WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND" IT ALL ENDS THE SAME....LAST THOUGHTS, " WHY I THINK I
AM GOING TO DIE." NO, REALLY??

You have a point anon 9:13, he does that quite a lot and he has a tendency to repeat the person he's interviewing words back to them--John Oliver did a funny piece on how many 60 Minutes correspondents have this habit. Anderson also always asks his interview subjects whether or not they were surprised by something. Watching him over the years, you do see a pattern in his style of interviewing.
