I was 12 minutes late to Tuesday's 360. Anderson was talking to a panel of 3 about the GOP healthcare bill being postponed. One of the three was Jeffrey Lord so I switched to Hayes.

The chyron at the start of the second segment, "Pro-Trump Group Pulls Healthcare Attack Ad", was misleading. The group wasn't attacking the GOP healthcare bill; they were attacking Senators who won't be voting for it. The one Tom Foreman showed in his report focused on Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV). Foreman's report also looked at how the votes are stacking up in the Senate for the bill. Anderson talked with Katrina Pierson and Ana Navarro about this issue. Pierson's viewpoint was GOP Senators should unify; Navarro's was "...this is political cannibalism, going after your own" and the GOP should work to make the healthcare bill better. Navarro mentioned obligations to constituents in her comments; Pierson never did.

Anderson interviewed Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), member of the House Intelligence Committee, about the latest in the Russian election-meddling investigation, what Obama did and did not do and Trump associate Roger Stone's upcoming testimony.

I missed the start of the fourth segment, coming back to a string of campaigner Trump clips of him ranting about Syria and that the U.S. should be "unpredictable" and "surprise" Bashir Assad. Next was a clip of Sarah Sanders doing her best Sean Spicer and trying to make positive sense of Trump's attitude towards Syria. Anderson spoke with two retired military guys - Jon Riley and Rick Francona - about Trump, Assad, Syria, chemical attacks and what could be done.

The last segment of the first hour was a promo for the CNN special coming up at 10 pm "The Russian Connection: Inside the Attack on Democracy". There was a clip from the show and a chat with Jim Sciutto.

Nothing in the first hour about Sarah Sanders attacking the media in general and CNN in particular by showing a film by GOP propagandist James O'Keefe during the press briefing.

Leave it to the disgusting, corrupt Trump team to embrace a cheap fraudster like James O'Keefe--this should've caused the entire WHPC to walk out en masse. There was one reporter who spoke out against Sarah Huckabee Sanders' characterization of the press as 'fake news'--no other reporters backed him up but I'm sure many of them agreed with him. Not surprising that Anderson didn't air the heated exchange between Huckabee-Sanders (unless I missed it) and the reporter--AC probably thought that guy was showboating.

Amanda Carpenter came off rude, snide, insensitive and misinformed in her debate about Planned Parenthood with Jennifer Granholm.

Whose idea was it to bring back the ridiculous, credibility free Katrina Pearson? She's awful.
