It pretty much validated the following video posted by Vox today :  CNN's approach to covering politics prioritizes drama and spectacle over truth telling.  AC360 seems to include at least one such segment each program.  Anderson seems exasperated at times, but apparently Zucker produces every hour of CNN now.

Innocents have gone to jail, say NOLA public defenders 
New Orleans public defenders tell Anderson Cooper that innocent people have gone to jail because they've lacked the resources and time to defend them properly

Past and current attorneys of the New Orleans Public Defenders Office tell Anderson Cooper they believe innocent clients have gone to jail because they lacked the time and resources to defend them properly. The system is so overburdened that in 2016 New Orleans Chief Public Defender Derwyn Bunton began ordering his staff to refuse to take on clients facing the most serious felonies. Cooper’s report on the New Orleans justice system will be broadcast on 60 Minutes Sunday, April 16 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

All nine of the attorneys agreed when asked by Cooper if they believed an innocent client went to jail because they didn’t have enough time to spend on their case.

When 52 attorneys are responsible for 20,000 criminal cases a year, as in New Orleans, they do their best says Bunton. But often, indigent defendants will not get the quality defense they are entitled to. “You can’t provide the kind of representation that the Constitution, our code of ethics and professional standards would have you provide,” says Bunton. Asked if it’s not better to have a busy lawyer than no lawyer, Bunton does not hesitate, “No. A lawyer poorly resourced can cause irreparable harm to a client.”

Cooper follows one case of a man arrested in New Orleans who sat in jail for more than a year before an attorney presented evidence to the court showing he did not even match the suspect’s description. He also speaks to the man’s original public defender who got so fed up with not having the time to provide quality defense, she quit.

At the time, Lindsay Samuel represented nearly a hundred clients facing a life in prison. She felt she was “Always coming up short. The first thousand clients you feel terrible. The second thousand clients, you feel awful,” she recalls. “Every day my clients are going away for a decade and I just move along to the next client,” says Samuel.

Bunton shows Cooper a warehouse full of the nearly half million cases handled by his office in the past decade. He says 90 to 95 percent of the defendants in those cases pled guilty, many because they lacked confidence in an overburdened public defender being able to provide them with an adequate defense. The justice system in New Orleans has become a criminal processing system says Bunton, “A conveyor belt that starts when you are arrested and then there’s hands that touch you on your way to prison,” he tells Cooper. “It’s not about figuring out...your innocence...and that’s what we are fighting to change,” says Bunton.  (Please click on above link for original article.)

TV News Poll: Anderson Cooper Viewed Most Favorably Among News Personalities

video


A THR and National Research Group survey reveals 36 percent of respondents would describe Cooper as "improved" and "talented." CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was the news personality viewed most favorably, according to a new poll commissioned by THR.

The poll — which asked 1,000 news consumers (split 50-50 between Clinton and Trump supporters) to rank anchors by specific key words — found that Americans viewed Cooper as "improved" (36 percent), "smart" (42 percent) and "talented" (36 percent). Overall, 68 percent of respondents said they felt "favorable" toward him, higher than any of his colleagues.

Other anchors were also ranked based on descriptive words such as "boring," "fearless" and "honest." Trump and Clinton supporters shared similar views of former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, who was targeted by Trump during much of the 2016 election cycle: 21 percent of voters described Kelly as "fearless" (23 percent of Republicans and 21 percent of Democrats). 29 percent found NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt to be "relatable," with 35 percent of Clinton supporters identifying him as such compared with 22 percent of Trump supporters.

Trump and Clinton supporters' opinions diverged further when it came to ranking the accountability of Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts and political commentator Sean Hannity. Overall 36 percent found Roberts to be "honest" — Clinton supporters had higher trust in Roberts with 43 percent, in contrast to 25 percent of Trump supporters. An average of 30 percent of respondents found Hannity to be "biased" — only 18 percent of Trump voters thought so, but a full 40 percent of Clinton voters did. Also, 14 percent found Cooper's CNN colleague, Wolf Blitzer, "boring."

Both political stripes had similar sentiments about talk show host and author Chris Matthews (28 percent of Americans described him as, blandly, a "commentator") and Fox News' Bill O’Reilly. Approximately 34 percent of combined Trump and Clinton voters found the host to be "aggressive," with Democrats viewing the anchor in a more negative light. 35 percent of Clinton supporters described O'Reilly as "mean" (compared to 13 percent of Trump supporters). The O'Reilly Factor host was also perceived as the least kind, talented and journalistic.

From a long NY Times article titled, "CNN Had a Problem.  Donald Trump Solved It.":

As Zucker sees it, his pro-Trump panelists are not just spokespeople for a worldview; they are "characters in a dram," members of CNN's ensemble cast.  "Everybody says, 'Oh, I can't believe you have Jeffrey Lord or Kayleigh McEnany,' but you know what?"  Zucker told me with some satisfaction.  They know who Jeffrey Lord and Kayleigh McEnany are."    

This begs the question, Is CNN a news network or a Zucker produced drama?
