Here's a partial rundown of the first hour of Tuesday's 360.
First I was 5 minutes late.
Second that didn't seem to matter for the first half-hour because it was almost entirely the huge 8 pundit panel. Various chyrons displayed news on Obama commuting the sentence of Chelsea Manning, Sen. Graham not liking that, Wikileaks' Assaunge did like that and "Awaiting Trump's Remarks To Foreign Diplomats".
I didn't pay much attention to the discussion and when Trump's speech started I changed the channel. It must have been a very short speech or else CNN decided after a minute or two of the usual Trump blather to go back to the panel.

In the third segment Anderson talked to Nick Valencia about the Orlando cop killer suspect capture and then it was a Phil Mattingly report on "TrumpCare". Mattingly covered what was known about it so far, the vast unknown even for members of Congress, Trump's claim that it's almost done and the theory that it's more about "access" rather than "coverage".

Fluffy news time was covered by Randi Kaye in a report on the Obamas moving out of the White House, the Trumps moving in and the preparations going on for that. Next Anderson continued the fluff with an interview of Anita McBride, former Chief of Staff for Laura Bush.
360 could have reported on the confirmation hearings today for Dept. of Education nominee Betsy Devos or the new defamation lawsuit against Trump by a former "Apprentice" contestant.

The last segment of the first hour was Martin Savidge's report on "Small Business Owner Optimistic About Trump Presidency". Savidge profiled Todd and Lil Seeburger at their restaurant in Michigan. I didn't watch enough to really take note of what the Seeburgers were saying but, as I write this now, would like to see Savidge return to them in a year for an update.
Anderson previewed the start of the second hour: the Chelsea Manning sentence commute by Obama.

Just couldn't get much into 360 today; the start (the start for me anyway) with the panel really didn't help.

BETSY DEVOS KNOWS ZERO ABOUT PUBLIC EDUCATION. HER OWN CHILDREN WENT TO PRIVATE SCHOOL AND SHE WAS
NOT VETTED BY THE MIGHTY "TRUMP TEAM." IN FACT NO ONE HAS VETTED ANY OF HIS NOMINEES AND NO ONE WILL. THEY WERE ALL CHOSEN BECAUSE THEY ARE IN THE "BILLIONAIRES" CLUB. NOW THAT QUALIFIES EVERYONE FOR THEIR PLACEMENTS AND FLYNN KNOWS RUSSIAN OPERATIVES....GOOD FOR HIM. ALL OF THEM ARE JUST LIKE THEIR BOSS. UNQUALIFIED BIGOTS.
