Its about time that the Fukushima workers get some real food. Hopefully they will get it tomorrow. They're supposed to fix all the problems going on in the plant yet they're given so little to eat. That is wrong on so many levels. Not having enough protective gear is just ridiculous. It sounds like TEPCO isn't keeping up their end of the deal. How do they expect these workers to do anything when they aren't getting enough food and don't have enough/proper protective gear. There is no excuse for that.

Thanks for all extras. I am really looking forward to Anderson covering the royal wedding.

Found 360 faster paced tonite and had a good mix of segments.
Especially thought AC did a more than compelling interview with the Syrian Diplomat who believes his president is a "reformer," and denied persecution and civil unrest.
He also accused AC of not reading a quote in its entirety about the internet and out of context in order to make a point. Interesting.
However, I was more than disturbed to see the repeated footage of blood, gore, and graphic details of the carnage taking place, I believe in Syria.
We get it. There's civil strife and brutality and it doesn't need to be shown repeatedly, unless it is being done, purely for ratings.
It's as though, management feels if AC can't be there in person, we'll keep showing ireports over and over.
I don't watch the news to see a man's head blown to bits and shreaded. News does not have to be "exciting and entertaining." It's the NEWS CNN.
And if this is the only way 360 can maintain its million plus, it too, will become old and stale.
Glad to see more of Isha and more about Japan.
Would have liked to have heard AC banter a little about the whale at Sea World but there was no time for "fluff."
It's either one extreme or the other.

Glad to see AC is going to be covering the actual Royal Wedding and fesivities. If only Piers Morgan wasn't going to be there....ick!

Heading on a vacation for a few happy to get away!

Piers is British and therefore has more knowledge of the Brits than AC, so he has more right to be there than anyone except Richard Quest.

"more right to be there than anyone except Richard Quest."

Well, perhaps it's just me, but I think I would prefer an American perspective on this wedding. Having been raised in Europe, I know and resent the automatic worship of Royals coming from European journalists. I like Kate and Wills, but Americans and Australians have a more healthy down to earth view of the blue bloods. Anyone have the right to be there - not just the British! ...And if I only had Richard Quest to inform me about the wedding in his manic voice, doing his over the top impression of A Real Brit I think I would go see something else. ...And AC probably reads up on the Royal's. It's an easy read, not exactly rocket science.

Thank you so much for the clip of CF, Larry and Sanjay. I never would have seen it otherwise and it was fantastic for both the seriousness and the comedy.
