Anderson Cooper 360 on Thursday, February 23, 2017


Anderson Cooper anchored AC360 in the 8pm and 9pmET hours.  

During last night's AC360 Anderson  had Rep Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) as a guest to talk about her town hall and she told him that only about one-third of the attendees were her constituents.   She was a guest on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer today and Blitzer pushed back and while giving her a chance to show proof of her claims, he provided evidence to the contrary.  Since there was no mention of this on AC360 here's the Blitzer video thanks to Mediaite (please clink on link for the full story) ...

Not sure why Anderson's so reluctant to believe that Steve Bannon is a racist--he asked guest Symone D. Sanders what evidence did she have to back up that claim--there's plenty of evidence out there--Bannon was the person who turned Breibart.com into the far-right, white nationalist, anti-Semitic and racist site it is now--Bannon is a hero to white supremicists and the KKK. Anderson is oddly doubtful that Bannon fits the description of a racist and seems to need all kinds of proof of it to be convinced, but he was quick to believe President Obama was up to no good and couldn't be trusted because he sat in Reverend Wright's church for 20 years--there was no evidence that President Obama agreed with everything Wright did, but he didn't get the benefit of the doubt from Anderson that AC's giving to Steve Bannon, even with all of the evidence out there that proves Bannon is a bigot. It just seems kind of peculiar to me and I don't get where AC is coming from with this. AC's pal Glenn Beck seems to be more aware of the danger of Bannon than AC is.

Kudos to Jim Sciutto and Evan Perez on their great investigative work for CNN on the Trump/Russia connection. Team Trump is unbelievably corrupt.

SOMEONE HAS TO HAND ANDERSON "TIME MAGAZINE," LAST WEEK'S CURRENT ISSUE. THERE'S PLENTY OF EVIDENCE THAT BANNON IS A #1 RACIST AND HE'S PROBABLY THE ONE RUNNING THE ANTI-MEDIA CAMPAIGN,
WITH THE SLOGAN "THE PRESS IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE." NO BANNON IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE,
AND HE'S PUTTING ALL THIS HATEFUL RHETORIC INTO THE SHALLOW MIND OF PRESIDENT VITRIOL.
TRUMP DOESN'T KNOW CAMPAIGN STRATEGY AND HE DOESN'T KNOW REPUBLICAN AGENDA....THE ONE WHO DOES
IS BANNON. PENCE MAY WELL BE VP, BUT IN NAME ONLY. BANNON IS ONE STEP AWAY FROM THE PRESIDENCY.

btw Trump angry-tweeted after AC360 on Friday so he was clearly upset. I am curious though about what you didn't like about the show? Anderson was very clear about the media war being a diversionary tactic for Trump, to distract from the Russia story, so he focused on that. And he didn't agree with Kayleigh on Lord even once. Which part offended you?
