Anderson Cooper 360 on Wednesday, July 13, 2016


Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 from the NYC studio.  The following graphic appeared during a segment in the first hour and somebody should have some explaining to do that it made it to air!

Today is Wednesday. I mislabeled Tuesday as Wednesday in yesterday's post. Sorry.

I didn't see alot of today's - Wednesday's - 360 because it was either too much on Trump or the usual panels of too many usual pundits and I'd much rather see Anderson talk to one or two experts He still does this occasionally but it seems like whenever the topic is political there's going to be five or six pundits and that's getting ridiculous.

The show started with the not-new news that Trump will announce his Vice-President on Friday. I left at the start of Jim Acosta's report. Hayes was covering Hillary Clinton's speech in Springfield IL ("The Party of Trump"), an interview with Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and a panel with just two people. The last time I saw Ellison on CNN was on Blitzer's show after the death of Philandro Castile.

Today's deja vu segment was the second one. Judge Curiel of California is mulling over releasing Trump's testimony in the lawsuit over his "University". 360 repeated Drew Griffin's report from last month detailing the slimy sales techniques used and the story of one of the victims. It is still a very good report but seeing it repeated again here made it feel like filler.

Anderson played a much shorter clip of Hillary's speech in Springfield than Hayes did. John King detailed the poll numbers from a handful of key states and talked to Anderson about the history of the 2012 election in those states, how they might flip and the state of the campaigns. The panel started again and I left again.

After a short look at the police shootings protest in Boston, there was a Brian Todd report on a serial killer of seven in Phoenix AZ. Anderson interviewed Phoenix Police Sargent Jonathon Howard.

The last segment of the first hour had a Kyung Lah report on the funerals for three of the five Dallas cops killed at a protest by a sniper. Later, Lah also showed viewers the memorial set up outside Dallas Police headquarters.

Will Thursday's 360 be too much on Trump's upcoming Veep choice?
Will Friday's 360 be too much on the choice made?
Will the same slathering attention be paid to Hillary's Veep choice?

ATA Team - good call on the 2012 electoral college map put up by 360 being incorrect. I didn't pay close attention when it was on the screen. Also I don't have all the details at this second but can say for sure California and Hawaii definitely went to Obama.

OBVIOUSLY THAT MAP WAS SHOWN YESTERDAY AND NOT TONIGHT AND JOHN KING WAS AT HIS MAGIC WALL
EXPLAINING HOW "THEIR GUY" COULD WIN IN VARIOUS KEY STATES.
THAT'S THE ONLY EXPLANATION I CAN SEE AND IT IS NO SURPRISE THAT, THIS NONE NEWS NETWORK, HAS A LOT INVESTED IN A TRUMP WIN....INCLUDING ANDERSON HIMSELF.
BUT WAIT FOR IT, TONIGHT WE GET A RERUN, CALLED, "WE CAN ALSO KILL A CROWD OF PEOPLE WITH A TRUCK FILLED WITH EXPLOSIVES." I'M NOT BEING COY OR UNSYMPATHETIC, I DO FEEL FOR THE UNSUSPECTING CROWD OF INNOCENT
PEOPLE IN NICE, FRANCE.
BUT HOW MANY TIMES ARE WE GOING TO SEE THAT SAME STOIC REACTION ON ANDERSON'S FACE, AS THOUGH
HE HAS ZERO COMPLICITY IN RALLYING THE TRUMP FORCES, WITH INTERMITTENT SYMPATHETIC, REMARKS
ABOUT THE NEXT TRAGEDY SPARKED BY, ALLEGEDLY THE ISLAMIC STATE? EVERY OTHER NIGHT SO FAR THIS
SUMMER, AND YES, TRUMP WILL BE OUR SAVIOR, IS IMPLIED BY WOLF, AND ANDERSON AND DANA BASH...
HAS ANDERSON SAID IT IN SO MANY WORDS. ABSOLUTELY NOT. BUT HE IMPLIES IT ALL THE TIME. EVEN HIS LACK LUSTER INTERVIEW WITH HILLARY AFTER THE LATEST TRAGEDY IN EUROPE. FOX NEWS HAD TRUMP,
DARN IT, SO ANDERSON "GOT STUCK INTERVIEWING HILLARY." YOU COULD HEAR IT IN HIS VOICE.
THE INTERVIEW WAS ABOUT NICE AND HOW THE NEXT ATTACK COULD BE PREVENTED.
ANDERSON....WE ALL KNOW ONLY TRUMP KNOWS HOW TO PREVENT THIS, SO WHY WASTE OUR TIME ASKING SOMEONE AS NAIVE AS HILLARY.
