Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday, December 20, 2016


With Anderson Cooper in Myanmar, the very capable John Berman was in the AC360 anchor chair for an expanded two hour edition of AC360.  Anderson posed with some fans for a selfie today:

Earlier in the day Anderson posted the following to his IG account:

Tuesday's lead story was the fireworks blast at a market near Mexico City. John Berman showed a video taken from a distance showing numerous explosions. Berman talked to Ed Lavendera for the details. Next Berman talked to Frederik Pleitgen about the Berlin Christmas market attack, the investigation, the manhunt for the driver and the possibility of other attacks soon. Then it was a talk with Paul Cruickshank for analysis.
Tom Foreman filed a report on the Berlin Christmas market attack, a good look at what happened when and where. The rest of the segment was more analysis with Cruickshank, Michael Weiss and Peter Bergen.

Terrorism concerns and increased security - especially with the inauguration coming up - in the U.S. was the topic for the third segment. After a Q&A with Ivan Perez, Berman talked to Juliette Kayyem and Art Roderick for more perspectives.

There was a brief update on the Mexican market fireworks explosions but I don't remember what was new at this time. Given the numerous terrorism attacks in the last few days (I didn't see 360 cover Jordan and Yemen), the question of how much attention Trump is paying to the daily intelligence briefs was covered. It started with questions for Jeff Zeleny on the briefings, what Trump knows and what he doesn't know... which isn't well known. Then a panel of 4 of the usual political pundits, including Kalieth McEnany, started and I switched to Hayes.

The last segment of the first hour dealt with the assassination of Russia's ambassador to Turkey; Berman provided an update, a short interview with he photographer who was in the room and then more details from Nic Robertson.

360 got a second hour instead of the scheduled and repeated CNN Special Report on a biker riot in Texas last year. Berman started with the Mexican market fireworks blast.

ATA, thanks for the extra photos especially the one of shirtless Anderson. I don't think there have been any other shirtless photos of Anderson, he seems shy to show off his physique. Not a damn thing wrong with his physique, he looks good to me!

CNN IS REALLY PROMOTING NEW YEARS EVE WITH KATHY GRIFFIN. SHE MUST GET A BUNDLE FOR CO-HOSTING WITH
ANDERSON. BUT I'D RATHER SEE HIM WITH ANDY COHEN TOGETHER FOR THE EVENING.
DO NOT LIKE GRIFFIN. BUT OTHERS DO.
THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, NO PROMOTION FOR ANDERSON'S HERO SPECIAL. I DID NOT KNOW WHEN IT WAS ON OR THAT I HAD MISSED IT. THIS TELLS ME THE RATINGS WERE POOR AND IT REALLY DOESN'T COST THAT MUCH FOR THEM TO PUT IT ON THE AIR, ALTHOUGH THEY ALWAYS USE IT AS A FILLER ANYWAY SO IT
MORE THAN PAYS FOR ITSELF.....AND ANDERSON.

Jaanza's right, AC is usually kind of reticent about being shirtless, it's a rare sight, but he and his partner Benjamin certainly are in terrific shape. Myanmar must be a special place for AC since it was one of the places where he started his career as a reporter.

PRESIDENT TWEET MUST STOP TWEETING. SOMEONE MUST HIDE HIS ACCOUNT OR TAKE AWAY HIS DEVICE OR CUT OFF HIS FINGERS. FOR ALL WE KNOW HE'S ALREADY GIVEN PUTIN CODES OR ACCESS TO ALL OUR PRIVATE DATA.
SOME JERK FROM NJ TOLD THE TIMES THAT TRUMP SHOULD RUN HIS BRAND NAME ACROSS THE WHITE HOUSE...."THE
PEOPLE'S HOUSE!" WELL SO MUCH FOR DRUMPF SUPPORTERS AND HE'S STILL TWEETING ABOUT HOW HE WON THE CAMPAIGN, COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO THE TERROR ATTACK IN BERLIN. HE CAN'T SEEM TO FORGET HILLARY WON THE POPULAR VOTE.
POPPY HARLOW ON CNN, WOULD HAVE NONE OF IT. SHE WENT AFTER ALICE STEWART, A CONSULTANT, AND SAID TRUMP
HAS TO STOP TWEETING ABOUT THINGS THAT ARE OVER. HE MUST "FOCUS." IN THIS DAY AND AGE WE HAVE TO WORRY
ABOUT THE PRESIDENT FOCUSING??? WHAT THE.....?
AND YES, I MUST SAY AC'S PARTNER IS IN THE BEST OF SHAPE. PERSONALLY I'M NOT INTO THESE THINGS, BUT HOW COULD YOU NOT NOTICE?
