The first segment of Wednesday's 360 was mostly on Hurricane Maria. The Mexican earthquake was covered for a minute or so. Anderson talked to meteorologist Tom Sater on Maria's path and strength, there was a Randi Kaye report on Maria hitting Puerto Rico and the damage left behind and, after a clip of reporter Kalya Santiago being blown off balance by Maria's winds, there was a Q&A about with Santiago about the situation in Puerto Rico.

Mexico's earthquake got the second segment. Ed Lavendera's report focused on efforts to find a little girl in a collapsed elementary school. Christopher Edwards had other info on the earthquake's damage and other rescue efforts.

"Mueller Asks White House For Documents Related To Flynn, Comey Firings" read the chyron and Anderson's overview included a reminder about Trump meeting with Russians in the White House the day after firing Comey and new fino on Manafort offering "private briefings" to a Russian billionaire with ties to the Kremlin. Anderson talked to Carol Leonnig of the Washington Post about all of this and other details of the Russian investigation and Leonnig stuck around while Anderson talked to Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen for analysis.

I missed the start of the segment about the GOP's latest and most horrible healthcare bill and never got the name of the reporter Anderson spoke with. The Q&A covered several details, the Jimmy Kimmel/Sen. Cassidy tangent (with clip) and the vote coming possibly next week. Anderson interviewed Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) who opposes the bill. Kasich explained why the bill is horrible, what he thinks the bill should be, how the GOP bill will destabilize lives, called the ordeal of repealing the ACA "a ping pong game" and said the GOP and Democrats should get together and make things better.

The last segment of the first hour was Anderson's interview with Richard Henning, the guy who flies into hurricanes for the NOAA, about Maria.

The second segment had the same start as the first.

Thanks, ATA, for posting the Ridiculist, I didn't see it when it was broadcast. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is the first time a Ridiculist has made fun of Trump. There's been plenty of material for a couple years now. Hopefully there will be more of these in the future. Tomorrow perhaps he could have a Ridiculist for Melania's speech on Wednesday against cyberbullying.

Jaanza said...

@Pragya - NOW I remember the covfefe one! Don't know why I'm blanking out on other Trump-themed Ridiculists... I'm blaming the evil-taking-away-healthcare GOP in general and Trump in particular.

JAANZA: YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT MELANIA'S SPEECH. UNFORTUNATELY, I DID HEAR IT AND SEE IT ON HUFFPOST. WHAT AN EMBARRASSMENT! SHE READ ALL OF IT AND KEPT LOOKING AT THE TELEPROMPTER, WHICH WAS TO HER RIGHT. DIDN'T SHE PRACTICE AT ALL? HER ENGLISH IS TERRIBLE. I'M QUITE CERTAIN SHE COULD WELL AFFORD A SPEECH THERAPIST OR LINGUIST, BUT LET'S FACE IT. LOOK WHO SHE CHOSE AS HER HUSBAND. LAURA BUSH DOESN'T HAVE TO WORRY AND NEITHER DOES MICHELLE OBAMA. THIS LADY IS IN KELLY ANNE'S UNIVERSE. AND SHE WAS A HYPOCRITE. HER HUSBAND BULLIES EVERYBODY ON AND OFF TWITTER AND SHE'S TALKING ABOUT CYBER BULLYING. DUH NO, AC WOULD NEVER MAKE FUN OF A FLOTUS. EVEN IF IT IS MELANIA TRUMP. JUST THE THOUGHT OF HER AS FIRST LADY IS CRINGE WORTHY. JUST THE THOUGHT OF HIM AS PRESIDENT IS CRINGE WORTHY.....MR. AND MRS.CRINGE WORTHY.
