I apologize in advance for mentioning Hayes so much in this post but I'm fed up with gargantuan panels and Hayes was covering topics Anderson hasn't yet...as far as I can tell,

Anderson was in Washington D.C. at a nice perch overlooking the White House. The on-screen title throughout most of the first segment was "FBI Releases Files From 2001 Bill Clinton Pardon". That pardon was for Marc Rich who had been indicted for tax evasion. Pamela Brown reported on the case, the release of FBI files on Dad Fred Trump's housing discrimination, Anthony Weiner was included and so was Trump's connections to Russia. Joe Johns reported on Hillary Clinton's campaign and Jim Acosta on Trump's. Anderson introduced a panel of 8 and I watched Hayes interview Micheal Moore. Has Anderson ever interviewed Moore? I don't think so and don't expect he ever will with Zucker in charge.

There are new poll numbers and John King explained it all in a "By The Numbers" with state polls, the 2012 electoral college map and the possible 2016 electoral map. Hillary still wins.
When the panel started again I went to Hayes and stayed there because he was reporting on Trump's numerous shouts in his speeches for polling station "watchers", the decree the GOP consented to in the early 80s after their polling station "watchers" (often armed police and other military personnel) intimidated voters in minority neighborhoods in NJ during that state's governor's race and how Trump currently inciting his supporters to do pretty much the same has resulted in a lawsuit by the DNC. This is an issue brought up before by Hayes and Maddow but I've never seen Anderson cover it.

Next up was a Randi Kaye report on Trump supporters in Wisconsin and a Gary Tuchman report on Hillary supporters in Florida. I didn't watch.

For the first time in a long time the civil war in Iraq was covered in the first hour. However it was in the form of what Trump has been saying about it and how wrong he's been. After a very short Arwa Damon report on the battle for Mosul, Anderson interviewed Col. Jeffrey McCausland.
At the end of the segment Anderson promoted CNN's election night and went to commercial break, but Hayes was still broadcasting for a few minutes. He was talking to just a two-person panel on GOP politicians' promise not to okay any SCOTUS nominated by (the possible/probable) President Hillary. This topic has been around for several weeks but again regrettably absent from (at least the first hour of) 360.

If Michael Moore showed up in the second hour or if Anderson had big good reports on Trump voting "wstchers" or GOP promising to block Hillary's SCOTUS nominations, let me know how wrong I've been and I'll apologize,

I might vote early just to get it over and done with.

Don't know the last time I watched CNN for more than a couple of minutes before I switch to Chris, then Rachel and finish up up with Lawrence. The lack of panels or what CNN calls experts is what has drawn me to MSNBC snd I will stick with them through election night.

@JAANZA; I VOTED EARLY AND MAILED IT IN. I'M GLAD I DID. I COULDN'T WAIT TO CAST MY VOTE FOR HILLARY. THIS IS A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP....NOTHING ELSE. THOSE THAT VOTE EARLY KNOW WHO THEY ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR AN UNLIKE PRESIDENT GROPER, NO WE ARE NOT "HAVING BUYERS REMORSE." THOSE THAT VOTE FOR YOU, WILL HAVE BUYERS REMORSE BECAUSE THEY ARE DEPLORABLE AND PROUD OF IT.
COULD THE PANEL THAT FEATURES AC IN THE MIDDLE GET ANY LARGER?
LOVE WHEN GARY TUCHMAN INTERVIEWS TRUMP SUPPORTERS. WHY? THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THEY LOOK SLOPPY
AND DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

BLONDE AMBITION HAS BEEN DRESSING IN BLACK LATELY....LIKE SHE'S ATTENDING A FUNERAL. PERHAPS SHE IS
HAVING "BUYERS REMORSE." AND HER BFF "MOB BOSS MAN COREY" HAS TONED HIMSELF DOWN...LIKE HE'S
ACTUALLY TRYING TO IMPERSONATE A HUMAN BEING.
COULD TRUMP'S BLUE BASEBALL CAP GO ANY LOWER? LOOKS DEPLORABLE ENOUGH FOR ME. MAYBE HE SHOULD THINK ABOUT COVERING HIS ENTIRE FACE. CLASSY. JUST WHAT THE COUNTRY NEEDS.

@CAPPY - I voted Wednesday afternoon. It was done at the county building, there were about 5 or 6 of us in line, another 5 or 6 at tables filing out the application form (I printed my form at home and filled it out ahead of time) and maybe 10 people voting.
I voted for Hillary, voted Democratic (DFL in Minnesota) all the way down the line.
This was shortly before 5 pm and all the other county offices in the building were closing but as I left there was another handful of people heading inside and I believe they were there to vote also.

I had a moment to chat with the woman at the counter who processed my application and gave me my ballot. This is the first year Minnesota has had early voting. The state legislature approved of early voting only for 2016 on a trial basis. I hope they decide to continue it because it seems like enough people want it. The woman at the counter said the place had been a lot busier and it was rather slow and quiet when I was there.

Is there a Wednesday ATA post and my computer just isn't loading it?
