Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded two hour edition of AC360 from the NYC studio. Anderson pretty much lost control of the panel tonight. Kayleigh McEnany told a bold face lie and neither Anderson or the producers corrected her at the time or later in the program as Anderson sometimes does. McEnany said there were 2,000 homicides in Chicago this year, the actual number is 440 to date. While the number is higher than last year, McEnancy shouldn't be stating as facts such gross exaggerations. It makes one wonder about the rest of the numbers she likes to rattle off. And Mr. Lewandowski needs to answer the questions he's asked if he appears on a panel, not pivot to something he wants to talk about to make his boss look better. (Yes, that's right, Corey drew a $20,000 check from Trump in July for "strategy consulting" while on the CNN payroll.) Conflict of interest? Ethical journalism, CNN?
It was nice to see Jame Carville back on AC360. While he was promoting his book his discussion with Anderson about the Clinton Foundation was the type of thing that has sorely been missing on AC360. Enjoy!
