Anderson Cooper 360 on Friday, May 27, 2016


Anderson Cooper was back in the NYC studio to anchor AC360 in the 8pmET hour.  The entire hour was devoted to a large protest and clashes outside a trump rally in San Diego.    Please note that there is no AC360 on the schedule for Monday, Memorial Day.


Anderson did post a couple of photos to his IG account today:

CNN is channel 32 on my cable system. Friday night it wasn't worth the effort to press 3 and 2 on the remote control to watch 360. As ATA already stated, it was about the protests in San Diego outside of a Trump rally. That was it for the whole hour.
MSNBC is channel 70. Hayes also had the protest but he also had other news which made it worthwhile to press 7 and 0.

I was two minutes late to the show. A reporter was on the scene of the protests and footage of the protests was on-screen, full-screen for nearly two entire segments.

In the third or fourth segment (lost track), Anderson and the panel of 5 or 6 was briefly shown when introduced but throughout the segment there was only protest scene on the screen. The panel was talking but never shown. It was kind of like radio.

In the next segment there was a glimpse of Anderson and newest panel member Basil Smikio (sp?). Then full screen of the protest. A few times there was a small-box shot of a panel member speaking while the protest had the bigger box on the screen. But only for a few seconds; every time; the protest blew up to full-screen.

Hayes, meanwhile, covered the protest and while that was in a box on the screen, he covered other stories: Trump campaign and the myth of a debate with Sanders. Trump and nuclear weapons, the Marco Rubio endorsement (segment titled over Hayes' shoulder, " "Little Marco" and The "Con Artist" "), the National Spelling Bee and also had a clip from Obama's trip to Japan. Around halfway through the show the protest scene box disappeared completely.

If Anderson was so tired after his trip, he could have stayed home and just phoned it in for Friday's 360. Literally. He was so rarely seen most viewers wouldn't notice if he was phoning in from his home.

HERE'S PROOF THAT ANDERSON REALLY DOES SLANTED NEWS STORIES, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IT DOES NOT
INVOLVE TRUMP, ALL THOUGH ON SECOND THOUGHT, IT MIGHT HAVE DONE US ALL GOOD IF TRUMP HAD BEEN
THE ONE IN THE ZOO ENCLOSURE. HUM.
BY NOW WE HAVE ALL HEARD ABOUT THE SHOOTING OF THE GORILLA, AN ENDANGERED SPECIES, AND WILDLIFE
GROUPS ARE, ACCORDING TO HUFFPOST, FILING CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST THE CINCINNATI ZOO FOR NEGLIGENCE.
IN REPORTING THE STORY, WHO DOES ANDERSON CHOOSE AS AN 'EXPERT'....NONE OTHER THAN
SEA WORLD LOVING JACK HANNA. YES, SOMEONE WHO HAS HAD SOME BAD LUCK LATELY WITH SEA WORLD AND
ORCA PROBLEMS OF HIS OWN. NATURALLY HANNA SAID "THEY DID THE RIGHT THING BY KILLING THE GORILLA IN ORDER TO SAVE THE CHILD."
HERE'S THE TROUBLE WITH THAT LOGIC: THE GORILLA DID NOTHING WRONG. IF YOU LOOK AT THE VIDEO HE WAS TRYING TO PROTECT THE "STUPID CHILD." AND MOMMY SAID SHE JUST HAD TOO MANY KIDS TO WATCH AND THIS ONE JUST GOT AWAY FROM HER.
NOW IF I WERE ASKED I'D SAY FINE THE MOTHER AND HAVE SOCIAL SERVICES CLIMB ALL OVER HER, BUT THE GORILLA WOULD STILL BE ALIVE. HE ATTACKED NOBODY. THE CHILD WAS THE INSTIGATOR, OR THE TORMENTOR, AS CHILDREN CAN BE.
AND MOMMY SHOULDN'T HAVE THAT MANY CHILDREN BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY, SHE CAN'T HANDLE THEM.
I'VE TAKEN 28 CHILDREN WITH ONE AIDE TO ZOOS AND PARKS AND MUSEUMS, AND IF YOU DISCIPLINE THE CHILDREN IN YOUR CHARGE, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO FIND A WAY TO 'TAMPER WITH THE ANIMALS.'
JACK HANNA'S DAYS OF BEING IN AUTHORITY ARE COMING TO AN END BECAUSE ANIMAL LOVERS, LIKE MYSELF, HAVE BECOME ACTIVISTS, AND HE'S THE EXPLOITER, ANDERSON.
