I wasn't able to watch 360 Monday so I was looking forward to it Tuesday. Until I remembered today was the Michigan and Mississippi primaries. 360 wasn't actually on. Instead it was "America's Choice 2016" and more anchored by Wolf Blitzer than Anderson. Blitzer had center stage, announced all the big news and talked to the reporters at various campaign rallies. Anderson's only job, that I saw him do, was toss questions to the panel.
I channelsurfed a lot during the 8 pm EST hour, didn't see Anderson do anything else and I very much appreciate ATA for watching more and letting me know Anderson didn't do anything more besides moderate the panel.

Did anyone else consistently and constantly watch? Or did you channel surf like me? However, I did see a reporter interview Jeff Weaver at a Sanders rally, Challen analyze a study of GOP voters attitudes and John King at the Magic Map detail how particular counties in Michigan voted.

Survey time! Who needs detailed information on how particular Michigan counties voted?
I imagine a political analyst somewhere down the line would want and need this information. But they wouldn't be watching CNN to get it; they'd get minutely detailed information from the counties themselves.

The next two days have debates - the Democrats on Wednesday and the Republicans on Thursday. Both on CNN so it's likely each day, if 360 is on, it will entirely be a ramp-up to the debate and nothing else. It's times like these I wish something else would happen somewhere and divert CNN's attention from politics and every single angle on politics.
Survey time! What would that be?
My idea: a real big chunk of MH370 washes ashore with unexpected and dramatic details pointing to exactly what happened. With how much time Anderson and 360 spent on MH370 last year, he won't be able to ignore this news.

Hillary Clinton gave a fantastic speech that was the polar opposite of all the hateful rhetoric that is happening on the Republican side but CNN and the other networks thought it wasn't worth a single minute of airtime--oh noooo, that would just take too much time away from another Trump inane ego-fest that signified absolutely nothing. It is a disgrace how the media salivates over ever idiotic word coming out of Trump's mouth--meanwhile real issues are being ignored. I turned off Trump as soon as I realized CNN was going to let him blather on and on and on. The press are Trump's puppets now and ohhhh joy, AC360 is going to have him on again Wednesday. Won't be watching because he wouldn't be so willing to come on anyone's news program if he thought they were going to push back and challenge him. HE runs the show and he knows it. Shame on the reporters and news organizations who are allowing this to happen. Ratings, schmatings.

SHAME ON EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN MISSISSIPPI WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP. MISS IS THE POOREST STATE IN THE
NATION. WHAT IN THE WORLD DO THEY HAVE IN COMMON WITH TRUMP?? DO THEY LIVE IN PALM SPRINGS AND
HAVE GOLDEN CHINAWARE? DO THEY HAVE PRIVATE JETS THAT WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT? HOW STUPID IS THE PUBLIC ANYWAY? WHAT WILL DONALD TRUMP DO FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON IN MISSISSIPPI? NOT ONE THING.
YES, I BLAME THE MEDIA BUT I ALSO BLAME EVERY VOTER OUT THERE WHO BELIEVES HIM. NO BRAINS, NO GAINS.
