I was four minutes late to Friday's 360. Anderson was already talking to Jeff Zeleny about Hillary Clinton meeting foreign policy honchos. A clip of Hillary dissing Trump for his praise of Putin was shown, there was talk of her taking questions from reporters and a clip of Trump Veep Pence essentially agreeing with Trump. Tom Foreman's report "Trump Praises Putin: Past and Present" had a fact I didn't hear about before. Putin's 82% approval rating, touted by Trump, came from Putin's own polling company. Although it was good to see the panel here had only three members, Jeffrey Lord got the ball rolling and I switched to Hayes.

A LIVE clip of Trump speaking in Florida started the second segment but the same panel of 3 from the first segment started again. I didn't watch.

After comments from Hillary and Trump, Barbara Starr filed an excellent report on North Korea firing another nuclear test. She covered what the test was, how the world has reacted, North Korea's nuclear capabilities and what should/would/could the rest of the world do. Starr and Gordon Chung had a Q&A with Anderson. Before the commercial break, Anderson spent 15 seconds on the Syrian ceasefire deal the U.S. and Russia hammered out.

Anderson showed a few photos of Trump "Hanging With" Bill Clinton in the early 2000s. Randi Kaye filed another report on Melania Trump, this one focusing on possible reasons she's not campaigning. Although most of the report was useless, Kaye did mention there are still questions about her working while on immigrant status and questions about her alleged college degree.

Another live shot of Trump talking in Florida started the last segment of the first hour. Most of the segment was Gary Tuchman's report "What 2nd Graders Think Of The 2016 Race" which was kind of cute but not nearly as interesting as Hayes covering Trump's changed position (not talking about it anymore, not even acknowledging questions about it) on "birtherism" and Obama.
At the very end Anderson promoted Hillary's appearance on one of the CNN Sunday morning shows to discuss 9/11.

I didn't watch the second hour. Maybe that's when Anderson covered the new ruling in the Standing Rock Sioux protest in North Dakota or WWII pilot Elaine Harmon being laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.
Later I found out Trump said, in that Florida speech, that Hillary could shoot someone and not be prosecuted. Did Anderson cover this in 360's second hour? Did he include a clip of Trump saying "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and not lose any voters" from a few months ago?

Jeffrey Lord got his you know what handed to him by Trump biographer Tony Schwartz--360 and CNN in general needs to have this guy on every day because he does a better job than most of the reporters of telling the truth and calling out the lies and baloney of Trump and his disgusting surrogates--Schwartz knows the real Trump and he knows all the reasons why Trump should NEVER be POTUS--that was the best segment on the show and I wish AC would have Schwartz on again without Lord around to spout out his Reagan deflecting nonsense--BUT it was great to see someone take on Lord so strongly--it doesn't happen nearly enough. Anderson also had a good segment with another Trumpie, Sarah Huckabee, who kept avoiding AC's questions and doing the deflection dance Lord does. I do wish AC would speak up when Trump surrogates just out and out lie about President Obama and his record but most of the time AC lets them just put their GOP talking points out there without comment--much of what Huckabee said was simply not true about the economy and reporters like AC need to step up. AC did keep pressing her about Trump's love affair with Putin and AC could barely disguise his irritation and annoyance with her predictable answers--I sensed a lot of sarcasm from AC during this segment--THIS is the AC I wish would show up more often on 360 when dealing with the ridiculous Trumpies.

Pundit Karine Jean Pierre was cut off the other day by AC during a Hillary Clinton segment but she got her revenge (and the last word) against tiresome K-Lee--that made the whole segment for me.

AC's brief interview with Dennis Leary about 9/11 was also very good--I think the footage of the inside of the Twin Towers that they discussed was filmed by two French brothers because I remember watching a documentary on it hosted by Robert DeNiro back in 2002 on CBS--CNN is promoting it as though it's newly found footage which is a little confusing.

@Aries Moon - RE: Tony Schwartz blasting Jeffrey Lord - later I saw that panel discussion on YouTube. It was great to see someone not let a Trump parrot deflect the question, turn every question into a diss of Obama or Hillary Clinton. Schwartz, "TALK ABOUT YOUR GUY!!!" was awesome to see.
I'm sorry I missed it in 360's broadcast but I honestly wasn't expecting anything other than the usual panel babble.

I'm not sorry about missing Sarah Huckabee. She must have been really awful if viewers could see Anderson getting irritated with her answers. I will check around 360's website and YouTube for the Karine Jean Pierre and Kaleigh McEnany encounter or maybe ATA will post it.

When I saw CNN's commercials about their 9/11 special with "new" footage from inside the towers I thought that I had seen that before but wasn't sure. Thanks for clarifying. Perhaps CNN is calling it newly found footage because maybe there will be a few seconds not already shown by CBS?

TONY SCHWARTZ CO AUTHORED "THE ART OF THE DEAL," AND ACCORDING TO HIM, TRUMP CAN BE DEPLORABLE. THEY SPLIT THE PROFIT FROM THE BOOK, WHICH WAS A BEST SELLER BECAUSE OF SCHWARTZ'S INPUT. THERE REALLY WAS NEVER AN "ART"FORM OF THE DEAL AND IT WAS SCHWARTZ'S TITLE.
HE SAID HE WOULD NEVER WORK WITH TRUMP AGAIN...ACCORDING TO A HUFFPOST ARTICLE SOME TIME AGO.
AND WHY DID HILLARY HAVE TO APOLOGIZE FOR SAYING "SOME OF TRUMPS SUPPORTERS WERE DEPLORABLE."
SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE APOLOGIZED. TRUMP NEVER DID AND HAS SAID FAR WORSE THINGS, BUT CNN WAS ALL
OVER HER ALLEGED GAFFE THIS NOON.
HILLARY SHOULD HAVE SAID: "I MEANT ALL OF HIS SUPPORTERS ARE DEPLORABLE AND THEY ARE ALL RACISTS IF THEY SUPPORT HIM." NOW THAT WOULD HAVE MADE MORE SENSE AND YOU CAN BET TRUMP WOULD
HAVE MORE GREY AROUND HIS TEMPLES THAN HE DOES NOW. GIVE HIM SOME HIS OWN TREATMENT FOR ONCE!!

MATT LAUER SHOULD BE FIRED BY NBC. HE'S GETTING PAID MILLIONS AND HIS WEAK PERFORMANCE WITH
TRUMP, NEVER HOLDING HIMS ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS MISINFORMED BABBLE, AND COMING UNPREPARED FOR A REAL A DUEL, JUST
SHOWS HOW LITTLE THE MEDIA ACTUALLY CARES WHO WINS.
A LOT IS AT STAKE IN THIS ELECTION. IT IS A REFERENDUM ON DONALD TRUMP....PLAIN AND SIMPLE, AND THAT IS NOT A PUN. IF THE MEDIA, WHICH INCLUDES ANDERSON COOPER, CHRIS WALLACE AND THE REST, DO NOT HOLD THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ACCOUNTABLE, WHAT GOOD ARE THEY"
CHRIS WALLACE SAID, LAST WEEK "IT WASN'T HIS JOB TO NAIL TRUMP IF HE LIES." HIS LATE FATHER
WOULD TURN OVER IN HIS GRAVE, MIKE WALLACE, IF HE EVER HEARD HIM SAY THAT.
WHOSE JOB IS IT CHRIS? NOT MINE. NOT ANYBODY HERE POSTING. FOR ONCE DO YOUR HOMEWORK. IT ISN'T HARD TO FIND FLAWS IN DONALD TRUMP. HE IS THE LEAST LIKELY PERSON, WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE, TO EVER SEEK ELECTION TO THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND, AND YOU SAY IT ISN'T YOUR JOB??
FIFTH GRADERS KNOW MORE THAN HE DOES, AND THEY DON'T GET MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ATTENDING PUBLIC SCHOOL, FOR PETE SAKE.
IF THIS COUNTRY WINDS UP ELECTING SOMEONE WHO WASN'T VETTED PROPERLY, IT IS YOUR FAULT FOR
ALLOWING THIS MENACE IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

HUFFPOST HAS A CLIP OF BABRA STRIESAND SINGING "SEND IN THE CLOWNS,"A PERSONAL RENDITION JUST
FOR DONALD TRUMP. IT IS WORTH A LISTEN. "BUT IF HE WINS, WHERE WOULD WE MOVE?"

Just saw a YouTube Video "Media Turns On Matt Lauer After Trump Interview" by The Young Turks posted the day after the "Commander-in-Chief Forum" Lauer anchored.

I bring this up because at about 4:00 into the video, Cenk Uygur said "Anderson Cooper's Town Hall with the Republicans was a hundred times worse, it was embarrassing. 'Do you like pina coladas on the beach?', 'How much do you love your wife?' I mean it was PATHETIC!" I did not watch that Town Hall. Did Anderson really ask those questions?

Anderson will be doing one of the Presidential Debates. I hope he'll do a good job... but is that realistic? As Uygur pointed out in that video, the media as a whole has been cowed by Trump. Will Anderson show any guts during the debate? We know he can but will he?

aries moon said...

@Jaanza, Tony Schwartz did an excellent job of tackling Jeff Lord and Trump. I hope he's on 360 and other news programs often.

Anderson is capable of being a strong moderator when he wants to--he certainly hit Hillary Clinton hard in one of those Town Hall debates but he has an unfortunate tendency to back down when it comes to Trump and as CAPPY states, this is a problem with too many in the media. Matt Lauer was a disaster.

ISN'T IT JUST LIKE THE MEDIA TO GO AFTER CLINTON'S TRANSPARENCY FOR NOT TELLING "THEM" SHE HAD
PNEUMONIA? JAKE TAPPER MADE ME POSITIVELY SICK WHEN HE KEPT ASKING HILLARY'S STAFF ADVISER WHY
THEY DIDN'T RELEASE THE INFORMATION SOONER.
WELL JAKE, HOW COME YOU DON'T GO AFTER YOUR FAV TRUMP THE WAY YOU GO AFTER HILLARY, AND HER STAFF ADVISER KEPT GOING BACK TO THAT VERY FACT. TRUMP CAN DO HARM, INSULTS EVERYBODY, INCLUDING THE POPE, AND YOU LET HIM GET AWAY WITH IT, BUT HILLARY GETS THE "GORE TREATMENT."
MAYBE IT'S JUST BECAUSE OF YOUR DETERMINATION TO REPORT NEGATIVITY THAT SHE WASN'T TRANSPARENT,AND DECIDED NOT TO RELEASE THE INFORMATION, WHICH IN FACT IS A PRIVATE MATTER.
MEDICAL RECORDS ARE A PRIVATE, EVEN WITH THE VIDEO.
WHILE I AGREE IT DID NOT LOOK GOOD TO SEE HILLARY ALMOST FAINTING, SHE MUST BE VERY FATIGUED AND UNDER A GREAT DEAL OF STRESS BECAUSE OF THE WAY "THE MEDIA HAS BEEN TREATING HER."
TRUMP, AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, IS MENTALLY ILL. ALWAYS WAS, ALWAYS WILL BE, AND WE DON'T NEED A FAKE MD TO PROVE IT.

WELL TONY SCHWARTZ WAS ON 360 AGAIN ALONG WITH MY FAVORITE, CHRISTINE QUINN. (SHE HAS GOT TO RUN FOR MAYOR OF NYC AGAIN. NO ONE MESSES WITH HER.)
COREY LEWANDOWSKI LEARNED THAT LESSON MONTHS AGO, WHEN HE SCOLDED HER FOR SWIPING HIS ARM IN
A GENTEEL GESTURE.
COREY, YOU GOT OFF EASY. YOU HAVE THE KIND OF FACE HILLARY VIEWERS WANT TO SLAP, AND I GIVE
CHRISTINE PERMISSION TO DO JUST THAT. IN FACT, NEXT TIME YOU'RE ON A 360 PANEL, LIKE YOU WERE
TONIGHT, ACTING LIKE A SMART A... I HOPE CHRISTINE LEAPS ACROSS HER DESK, TAKES YOU BY YOUR SHORT LAPELS, AND KNOCKS YOUR HEAD INTO THE BRICK FRAME BEHIND THE SET.
LIKE I SAID, "NOBODY MESSES WITH CHRISTINE QUINN." HER NYC OPPONENT LEARNED THAT THE HARD WAY,
EVEN THOUGH SHE LOST AND DE'BLASIO, THE CURRENT MAYOR OF NYC, NEVER FORGOT IT.

@Jaanza

I personally think Uygur is a joke. For some reason he has decided to bash AC repeatedly for no reason. No AC did not ask those questions it was a Town Hall format and AC asked some light questions AT THE END as a way to get to know the candidates better. Cenk however has decided to focus on the three light questions he asked at the end instead of all the other hard hitting questions during the whole hour or so.

I hate Cenk so much.
