@ATA - Thanks for posting the Ridiculist, I wasn't able to watch last night. Anderson had fun with Sen. Roberts' comment equating the healthcare debate to porcupines making love. My favorite bit was the clip of the dog and the orchestra. Goofy dogs are the best.

@CAPPY - responding to your yesterday post - I'm not understanding how Dan Rather is creepy but you certainly don't have to watch him if you don't want to. That's the thing with Jeffrey Lord on 360, I could either watch out of devotion to Anderson but hate it or I could change the channel. If not to Hayes then to ESPN or Comedy Central or whatever old-time classic movie is on. What do you turn to when you just can't watch 360 and the remote control is right next to you?
Personally, I like how Rather talks and his criticisms of Trump have been smart and dignified. Sometimes Tom Brokaw shows up on MSNBC to give a comment but I can't remember his last time.

Is Anderson on vacation next week?

ANDERSON HAD A VERY SHARP COMMENTARY ON TRUMP'S ON GOING UNDIGNIFIED TWEET ABOUT MIKA ON MORNING JOE. IN ESSENCE ANDERSON CALLED HIM IMMATURE, (VERY FITTING) AND WEAK AND THIN SKINNED.
GOOD FOR HIM. OF COURSE THE MEDIA HAS SHOT BACK AS THEY SHOULD.
ALL CLIPS ARE NOW ON HUFFPOST AND WORTH A LISTEN.
@JAANZA; OF COURSE I AM AWARE THAT I CAN CHANGE THE CHANNEL. THAT WAS NEVER MY POINT.
MY POINT WAS, DAN RATHER WENT FROM BEING AN A LIST REPORTER TO ONE NO ONE WOULD HIRE BECAUSE HE 'SUPPOSEDLY' FALSIFIED INFORMATION FOR A 60 MINUTES REPORT SOME YEARS BACK. I DID NOT KNOW IF YOU KNEW THIS OR NOT.
WE ALL ARE FREE TO WATCH AND LISTEN TO ANYONE WE WANT AND WE DON'T HAVE TO AGREE.

@CAPPY - Glad to hear Anderson isn't sugarcoating Trump's tweets and not mincing words when it comes to describing Trump.

Aren't remote controls wonderful? When I was a kid my parents were too cheap to get one; instead whichever kid was closest to the TV would be the channel changer.
I vaguely remember the Dan Rather and '60 Minutes' scandal. Currently Rather has a show on AXS which I've never seen because my cable package doesn't include it. AXS must be very small and obscure because I get 500+ other channels. Spanish language golf anyone? Rather has shown up on CNN shows occasionally but I don't think he's ever been on 360.

One pundit I'd love to see on 360 more is David Cay Johnston who wrote an unlflattering book on Trump and seems to be on MSNBC a lot. Johnston is a terrific talker. Hey, as long as I'm making a list, how about my Senator Al Franken?

@JAANZA: YES, AL FRANKEN HAS TURNED INTO A HERO SENATOR WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT. I LIKE HIM AND HE DOESN'T SUGARCOAT ANYTHING. JUST TELLS IT LIKE IT IS. THE DEMS NEED MORE LIKE HIM. HE ALSO HAS A NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER: GIANT OF THE SENATE, AND HE IS.

SO TRUMP WENT AFTER CNN AGAIN. I MAY BE MISSING SOMETHING HERE BUT I THINK THAT'S A GREAT SIGN. IT SHOWS THAT AT LEAST CNN IS STEPPING UP ITS GAME AND ISN'T AFRAID TO "TELL THE TRUTH,"
IN THIS UNIVERSE.
THE VIDEO ITSELF IS MEANINGLESS, NO MATTER HOW MANY HITS OR TWEETS IT GOT. ITS FUZZY AND UNCLEAR AND REALLY THE ONLY ONE HARMED IS TRUMP. AS ANA NAVARO SAID IN AN INTERVIEW THIS AFTERNOON, "JUST WHEN YOU THINK TRUMP HAS HIT BOTTOM, HE GOES LOWER."
BUT SHAME ON THOSE UP FOR CONGRESSIONAL SEATS. THEY SHOULD ALL GET TOGETHER, BOTH PARTIES, AND CALL HIM ON HIS STUPIDITY. TRUMP IS A DUNCE....THOSE WILL MAKE REALLY GREAT CAPS SECOND TIME AROUND.

Does anyone know where I can watch Anderson's pulse documentary?

Jaanza said...

On Monday July 3, CNN did not air 360 but instead a repeat of a "The Seventies" episode.

@Pragya - Funny how CNN's website does not have a link to "The Pulse of Orlando" in it's entirely but only small clips of promos for Anderson's documentary. However, YouTube has a video which might be what you're looking for "LIVE CNN Special Report: The Pulse of Orlando" posted by Jeeny K.

I'm presuming 360 will return on Wednesday with a substitute anchor. Whoever that person is I hope he/she mentions Trump's juvenile 'bashing CNN' tweet as only it's role as a distraction from news like the increasing seriousness of the Russia investigation or the utter failure of the GOP healthcare bill.

NOW THE DUNCE IN CHIEF WANTS TO PROVE VOTER FRAUD SO HE CAN VALIDATE HIS LEGITIMACY AS PRESIDENT. HE WILL NEVER VALIDATE OR JUSTIFY HIS LEGITIMACY BECAUSE THERE WAS RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE AND IT WILL BE PROVEN THAT HE IS THE FRAUD IN CHIEF. TRUMP'S IGNORANCE IS APPALLING.
GOOD FOR THE STATES THAT WILL NOT COMPLY WITH THE VOTING COMMISSIONS REQUEST. THERE WAS NO ILLEGAL VOTING AND NO MATTER HOW THIS MORON IN CHIEF TRIES TO PERSUADE PUBLIC SENTIMENT, HE NEVER WON THE POPULAR VOTE, SIMPLY BECAUSE HE IS NOT POPULAR. AND HE CONTINUES TO DO EVERYTHING HE CAN TO PROVE HOW UNWORTHY OF THE PRESIDENCY HE REALLY IS. HE DISGUSTS MOST REASONABLE EDUCATED PEOPLE. HOPEFULLY WE WILL NOT HAVE TO ENDURE HIS PRESIDENCY FOR MUCH LONGER....AFTER HE IS PRESUMABLY IMPEACHED, AND IN THAT RESPECT, MOST STATES WILL COMPLY.
AS CARL BERNSTEIN SO APTLY PUT IT IN A CNN INTERVIEW, "TRUMP'S PRESIDENCY IS A MALIGNANCY."
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY TO THE ATA TEAM.

@Jaanza

I am a little upset at the shoddy treatment CNN gave this doc. A 10 p.m. slot on the Friday before the 4th and ZERO promo. Even their regular town halls get much more promo, and countdown clocks etc. Makes me wonder if Anderson is having issues with CNN. Thanks for the link!

About the tweet, I am a little torn. I agree that Trump's policies are the main thing, but these tweets are part of a concerted attack on the legitimacy of the press. They need to be addressed. Because a lot of people who don't follow the news obsessively start believing the lies. Like a lot of people would just hear "CNN producer said they were told to cover Russia even though there is nothing there" which is a lie. But they believe it and then they automatically disbelieve any Russia story. What I am trying to say is, the tweets are important because Trump is teaching people to distrust the press, who will be reporting on his policies.

HUFFPOST IS REPORTING THAT MORNING JOE'S RATING HAVE SPIKED AND GAINED OVER 600 THOUSAND MORE VIEWERS SINCE THE BATTLE OF TWITTER TRUMP BEGAN LAST WEEK. GOOD FOR THEM, HOWEVER, I DO REMEMBER THAT LAST SUMMER SCARBOROUGH WAS A FAN OF TRUMP. I FOUND THIS VERY STRANGE CONSIDERING HE IS ON MSNBC. IT SEEMS THAT THEY WERE FRIENDS PRIOR TO TRUMP'S TAKING OFFICE.
WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD MORNING JOE SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY REASON??
AND THERE IS NOTHING TO BE "TORN" ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO TRUMP TWEETS. HE'S DANGEROUS. PERIOD.
HE'S COMMANDER IN CHIEF AND HE PREFERS IGNORANCE TO KNOWLEDGE WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
37% OF THE VOTING POPULATION WILL ALWAYS BE ON HIS SIDE WHETHER HE TWEETS LIES, OR FABLE NEWS BROADCASTS. 37% PREFER TRUMP TO BE "THE DECIDER" NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES "JUST BECAUSE HE'S PRESIDENT," AND THEY ARE TOTALLY IGNORANT. THEY DO NOT WANT THE TRUTH, BECAUSE IT TELLS THEM THAT THEY MAKE POOR CHOICES AND ACKNOWLEDGES "THEIR" STUPIDITY, AND TRUMP KNOWS THIS. THAT IS WHY HE ALWAYS WILL GO BACK TO HIS BASE FOR SUPPORT.
