I was pleasantly surprised Anderson was live for 360 today. When I wondered about this yesterday, I would have guessed he wouldn't be here.

However, it was a jam-packed news day. A minute for the Empire State Building shooting at the start then a lot of good old-fashioned disaster reporting about Isaac. Everyone - Chad, Gary, Sean - did a great interview with Anderson.

After more on the Empire State Building shooting there was thankfully only one segment about politics. Romney's birth certificate comment - I don't think it was just a bad joke, Romney is trying to divert attention from the abortion issue.

More on Isaac and then a segment on Lance Armstrong that closed out the hour. At first I was annoyed there was no Ridiculist but the interview with Bill Strickland was good and answered some questions I had.

I can't watch the Anderson video on this computer, I'll have to wait til tomorrow to see it. The thing is I can't get mad at reporters shouting questions whether it's news reporters asking candidates about policy issues or sleazy paparazzi asking personal questions. That's the nature of the business and you gotta take both.

@Jaanza: You are absolutely right.
Just because Anderson is a reporter doesn't mean he's exempt from scrutiny.
He put himself in the arena and now he too, has to play the game.
The "paparazzi" are just doing their job, like it or not.

Romney delving into birther territory and then trying to pretend he wasn't serious is disgusting. I hope he never sees the inside of the White House, but he and his billionaire buddies and dirty vote suppressing GOP governors may have it all sewn up.

I get that AC is rich and famous and has privileges most of us will never have and getting hounded by the paparazzi/press is a given--something he has to deal with, but seeing that "reporter" follow him from his home all the way to his taxi with the camera right in his face while bombarding him with personal questions is just so wrong--I know there are commenters here who will be thrilled to see AC harassed and "punished" for whatever reason, but it's kind of an awful thing to have to put up with, no matter how well off you are--I don't think I could handle it as calmly as he does--and I've never really heard him complain all that much about a lack of privacy the way many famous folks tend to do.

@aries moon I agree so much with what you said, from the people who will say that he deserves it to the fact that he is a public figure and should expect the paparazzi to follow him.

I guess I am just naive and expect people to leave him alone doing this time. He sure had a lot of strength to just keep walking and not say anything to that reporter and didn't really show an expression on his face at all.

I really appreciate ATA posting all that they have about Anderson and Ben. It is our choice to read or watch what you post and I think most of us do want to know what is going on and how he handles things, and this latest video looks like he is handling it the way he wants to, with no comment.

Thank you

@anon 12:28 pm, I also agree with your comments including ATA's coverage of AC lately, it really has been "all things Anderson" and has given us a fuller picture of his work and life.

@ATA can we now discuss Anderson's previous boyfriends? And why not it's only fair.

Anderson flew under the radar for many years and he was rich and famous then too.
There are many who are rich and famous and you never hear about them because they like it that way and there is a way to "fly under the radar."
Anderson wishes NOT to fly under the radar anymore so now it is only fair that he suffer the consequences.
You can't have it both ways.
This is why some of us have lost respect for him as a journalist.
He likes publicity. He likes his photos ops or he wouldn't be in the "biz."
