Anderson Cooper 360 on Tuesday & Wednesday, November 22 & 23, 2016


With Anderson Cooper on vacation in Brazil (pictured above with Wilbert Das who built his Trancoso home and his partner) the very capable John Berman has been in the AC360 anchor chair.


One of many topics not covered on AC360 was reported in The New York Post:

Donald Trump’s media summit was a ‘f−−−ing firing squad’ 

 Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f−−−ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.

“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said. 

 “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing-down,” the source added. 

 A second source confirmed the fireworks. 

“The meeting took place in a big boardroom and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful, dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room, calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate — which was Martha Raddatz, who was also in the room.”

The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump administration.

“[‘CBS Good Morning’ co-host Gayle] King did not stand up, but asked some question, ‘How do you propose we the media work with you?’ Chuck Todd asked some pretty pointed questions. David Muir asked, ‘How are you going to cope living in DC while your family is in NYC?’ It was a horrible meeting.”

Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway told reporters the gathering went well.

“Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks,” she said during a gaggle in the lobby of Trump Tower. “Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.”

The meeting was off the record, meaning the participants agreed not to talk about the substance of the conversations.

The hour-long session included top execs from network and cable news channels. Among the attendees were NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd; ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz; CBS’ Norah O’Donnell, John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and King; Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace and Suzanne Scott; MSNBC’s Phil Griffin, and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times, plans to meet with Trump on Tuesday.

There was no immediate comment from the Trump Team.

Anderson Cooper Says Donald Trump Presidency Will ‘Be a Really Interesting Four to Eight Years’
BY KC BAKER•@KCBAKER77777 (please click on above link for original source article from People.com

He asked the tough questions in a presidential debate and tangled with talking heads on CNN, but with the election behind him, anchor Anderson Cooper says he is looking forward to the next chapter.

“It’s been a fascinating election and I think it’s going to be a really interesting four to eight years,” Cooper, 49, told PEOPLE of controversial GOP candidate’s Donald Trump‘s unexpected ascension to the highest office in the land. “I look forward to being part of it and covering it.”

Speaking at Tuesday’s Hope for Depression Research Foundation’s Tenth Annual Luncheon in Manhattan, where he was honored with the Hope Award for Depression Advocacy, the newsman called the election “extraordinary” and noted “how involved people have been. A lot of new people joined the process and that’s exciting to see.”

Cooper, whose brother Carter Cooper killed himself in 1988, was honored for speaking out about depression and suicide, most especially in his recent book, The Rainbow Comes and Goes: A Mother and Son on Life, Love and Loss, which he wrote with his mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, and their HBO documentary, Nothing Left Unsaid.

According to Audrey Gruss — who founded HDRF in 2006 in honor of her late mother, Hope, who suffered for decades from clinical depression — Cooper “has spent much of his professional career speaking openly about his struggle to grieve and to move on from this incomprehensible tragedy.

“The public discussion of such a private death shows a combination of both the strength and the compassion to help others facing similar kinds of grief.”

Addressing the packed audience at the Plaza Hotel, Cooper said, “As many of you know, my brother Carter, died when I was a senior in college. He jumped off a balcony in front of my mother while she was begging him not to.”

After his brother’s shocking death, Cooper says he spent his senior year at Yale University “struggling with grief trying to figure out how to move forward with my life and understand what happened.”

Suicide, he said, “is something we don’t speak much about” in our society.

As an aspiring reporter, he purposefully traveled to places like Somalia “where the language of loss was spoken,” he says, and “not something whispered about.”

“In a strange way, I knew I had discovered my bliss,” he says. “I knew that I couldn’t stop the starvation and I couldn’t save people’s lives, but I could bear witness to their struggles. I could tell their stories.”

Years later he says he realized that “I needed to do those stories for my own survival.”

In one of the luncheon’s most touching moments, when Cooper took the stage, he thanked 11-year-old Shane Boylan, who was lauded for raising $4,000 from a 10-mile fundraising bike ride he organized in June for the HDRF after his father committed suicide earlier this year.

“Nobody told me I was going to be following an 11-year-old,” Cooper initially joked. “Not an easy task.”

Growing more serious, Cooper said, “My dad passed away when I was 10 years old and my brother when I was 21 and I know when I was 11 I could not have stood on this stage and talked about my father the way he did.”

Saying that even at 21, when his brother died, he could not have spoken to an audience about the deaths of his brother and father, he commended Boylan for his remarks about his dad and wanting to help battle depression, saying simply:”Thank you, Shane.”

It Is What It Is, November 9, 2016

To say we’re a shell shocked over the results of yesterday’s Presidential election would be quite the understatement. There will be much finger pointing in the aftermath of this election, some at the DNC and some at the media. Their nonstop coverage of Donald Trump, from the primaries through the election, simply because of his outrageousness gave him invaluable publicity while other more worthy Republican’s (come on, you know there had to be at least one) could not get their message out. We distinctly remember Anderson justifying Trump being the lead story every night saying he’s always available to talk. Well if that’s the criteria for being the lead story every night we should all be questioning how 360 is produced. And further those Republican surrogates that CNN PAID to drive us mad? We could not say it better than Carlos Maza who did in the following video about the CNN Trump surrogates (please take a few minutes to watch, it’s just that damn good). We’ll be taking the next few days off from blogging to regain our perspective but don’t let that stop you from sharing your opinions/comments. We can commiserate together. ~The ATA Team

If you, like us, were playing 'Where's Waldo' with the hard to find Anderson Cooper in last night's election coverage he posted this picture to his IG account yesterday prior to going on the air.
