Anderson Cooper 360 on Thursday, July 21, 2016 Live from the RNC


Anderson Cooper anchored AC360 from inside the Republican National Convention Hall in Cleveland, OH. He began on air coverage with Wolf Blitzer in The Situation Room and after AC360 was part of CNN's convention coverage through the midnight ET hour.

I got to CNN right at the start of the AC360 hour, 8 pm (EST). I had hoped that there would be five or six minutes on the ouster of Ailes at FOX News just like Blitzer did on his show at 5 and 6. Nope, that didn't happen. Although it was labelled "360" in the cable program guide, it was definitely the "Republican National Convention" with the broadcast of Sherriff Arpaio's (staunch anti-immigrant guy from AZ) speech.

Seven or eight minutes later it was Blitzer and Tapper with Paul Monafort from the Trump campaign talking about the Trump campaign. MSNBC broadcast the following speaker, an African-American pastor. For some reason, CNN deemed this guy not worthy of airtime.

A bit later Anderson popped up with the panel. The discussion topic was Ivanka Trump's upcoming speech . I channel surfed and checking back a few minutes later saw that Rep. Marsha Blackburn's speech was worthy of being broadcast.

After less than 30 minutes I was fed up with CNN's GOP show.

So glad the GOP convention is over. Wonder how the coverage will be next week of the Democratic National Convention.

It's REALLY annoying when Anderson cuts short an important conversation on the dangers of Trump and instead switches the discussion to some pointless Trump strategy for winning talk--he does it so often I'm starting to think it's deliberate--maybe not by him, but his producers perhaps. I will give Anderson credit for pointing out the GOP anti-LGBT platform when the others were heaping so much praise on Peter Thiel's 'acceptance' by the GOP convention crowd--talk is cheap--the current VP candidate is horrifically anti-gay and the discriminatory GOP LGBT policies have not changed. Sickening to see Corey Lewandowski given such a prominent role on the panel--he shouldn't even be employed by CNN in the first place, it's a disgrace and his thoughts are meaningless. I didn't listen to Trump's speech but apparently all of his racist and fearful base will love it but it probably won't work for the general election. Ana Navarro and Van Jones recognized the hate and fearmongering in Trump's speech and the huge threat he poses to this country and the world--hopefully many others will too. Can't wait to see the Democratic convention and I hope K-Lee and Jeff Lord and all the other right wingers won't get a lot of airtime--it will be a relief to hear from people with intelligence and compassion and those who don't make excuses for Trump's racism.

THE WASHINGTON POST SLAMMED TRUMP IN ITS LATEST EDITORIAL CALLING HIM "A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY
AND OUR WAY OF LIFE." BUT THEY DID THEMSELVES A DISSERVICE BY SAYING HE WAS "A BUSINESS TYCOON."
WHEN IS THE MEDIA GOING TO STOP THIS GUSHING RHETORIC? HE'S NO TYCOON, EXCEPT IN HIS OWN MIND.
HE'S EXACTLY WHAT HILLARY SAID HE WAS.....A BUSINESS MAN WHOSE DEALINGS ALWAYS END WITH CHAPTER 11.
ACCORDING TO HUFFPOST, THE RATINGS FOR THE RNC CONVENTION WERE NOT 'YUGE,' AND I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER. I DIDN'T DEVOTE ONE OUNCE OF MY TIME WATCHING THAT JACK A-- SPEW FORTH HIS FILTH AND
DENIGRATE AMERICA. HIS VISION IS NOT MY VISION AND HIS HOPELESS PERCEPTION, BECAUSE OF OBAMA,
PRESUMABLY, IS PERILOUS. TRUMP IS BANKING ON FEAR AND THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO WILL NO DOUBT BELIEVE HIS LIES AND THAT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE. THAT IS JUST HOW "HITLER" CAME TO POWER.
HISTORY DOES REPEAT ITSELF AND WE CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN.
