Anderson Cooper 360 on Wednesday, June 8, 2016

Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 from a remote location.

LIVE announced Kelly's co-hosts for the week of June 20th and Anderson is back in the co-host chair on Wednesday and Thursday of that week.

He's also on the schedule of Cannes Lions in France on the 22nd.  Since it's a little hard to be in two places at once we did a little research and it seems like the Live appearances are repeats of Anderson's co-host appearances from early April as that is a dark week for Live Kelly.   Anderson will be on stage with Anthony Bourdain in a session for Time-Warner at Cannes.   Click here for details.

I was three minutes late to Wednesday's 360; Anderson was already interviewing Hillary Clinton. I heard them discuss the Clinton Foundation donors, husband Bill and a woman being President. The panel here was Jonathan Tasini, Christine Quinn, Gloria Borger, John Jay Lavelle and David Gergen. The usual things were said; the only interesting part was when Lavelle said Sanders supporters will go to Trump and Tasini rather heatedly argued against that idea. Unfortunately Anderson cut off their exchange and went to commercial.

At the start of the second segment the on-screen title was about Trump having a "softer tone", a "new playbook". Haven't we seen this about 4 or 5 times before? Trump allegedly planning to tone down his obnoxiousness? That hasn't happened yet and probably never will. Anderson talked to Dana Bash who also had a report. One line in the report was about Trump's success "...remarkable considering how tiny his campaign staff is" but not remarkable when you considerable the heavy - and soft - media coverage he's received. Only recently has Trump gotten any scrutiny. I missed most of the panel.

The segment supposedly about the Sanders campaign was all about how Trump may woo Sanders' supporters to his side. Borger and Gergen discussed that.

There was more about the Sanders' campaign in the next segment when Anderson had a Q&A with Joe Johns, who had a bit on the Clinton campaign. The panel started, I left and when I came back Joe Biden was the topic.

The on-screen title at the start of the second hour was "Rep. Ryan Attempts To Rally GOP For Trump". I watched Maddow.

As you can see the first hour was only about the 2016 Presidential campaign. Maybe sometime in the second hour Anderson covered the shooting in Tel Aviv, the sentencing of rapist swimmer Brock Turner and Zika virus at the Olympics. There's other big news out there besides the 2016 race.
