Who's your pick?

screencap by sheryn

While I was watching 360 on Tuesday night a question occurred to me. If I can't have Erica Hill do the 360 Updates who would be my second choice? While I have enjoyed Tom Foreman, he doesn't lend himself to the banter and teasing that I so enjoyed between AC and Ms. Hill. The banter and snark isn't there with Randy Kaye either. My vote is with Sophia Choi or Christi Paul. Sophia because she can bring out the snarky Anderson and Christi just because I've met her and I like her. Who's your choice?


I'm a little off my game tonight so bear with me I'll probably be all over the place before I'm done.

On Monday morning, I half heartedly watched Al Roker announce this years Quill Awards. If I had payed better attention I would have notice that Anderson was nominated for Dispatches in the memoir and biography category. What are the Quills you ask? The Quills, now in their second year, are hoping to challenge the more staid National Book Awards and the Pulitzer Prizes, which have tended toward works with strong literary merit but sometimes little public recognition. The award's promoters aim to promote literacy and gain the kind of recognition that the Booker Prize bestows on British authors. The awards will be presented on October 10 and the ceremony will be broadcast by NBC on October 28. Last year's show featured an introduction by "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart and celebrity presenters including Deepak Chopra and "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall.

What is it with Salon.com? Yesterday they slammed Anderson as a replacement for Larry King, today they are just slamming him period. Note to Salon.com. It would make your article more creditable if you got your facts correct. ...Cooper's face seems to be everywhere these days: not only on Vanity Fair and on billboards but on "Oprah," "The Daily Show," "Late Night With David Letterman," "The Tonight Show" and soon on "60 Minutes" where Cooper will be a correspondent. Did I miss an appearance by Anderson on The Tonight Show recently? I don't think so. The article isn't very flattering to Mr. Cooper, but if you must check it out here's the link.

And since I've been a little grim tonight I want to leave you with a forward we got today from one of my husbands friends. It probably has a little bit more truth to it then most women want to admit, me included. Enjoy (or not!).

Phebe, very good article on Salon.com - I don't agree with it - but's it's good!! Hope you're feeling better. How's your remodel is coming along?

Read the article too. Of all the fansites dedicated to Anderson they would choose one that hasn't been updated since 2000. Go figure. They must have meant Late Night with Conan instead of the Tonight Show.

I vote for Sophia but she's no longer a steady anchor on Headline News, except for weekends late at night. Once in a while she fills in for someone during the day. I like her personality and think she and Anderson would be able to get the snark going. Kristi is good too but she's on HNL in the morning now so that probably wouldn't work out.

Apparently it's now fun to bash Anderson in the media. Geez *rolls eyes* Nice objectivity there too.

As for someone besides Erica, I don't even want to think about it. That was the only snark we got from anymore and it SUCKS that it's gone. :/

I love the woman's and men's english. It's all true :P
