Anderson Cooper, A Look Back: Hurricane Katrina Six Months Later

As the 7th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina fast approaches, we look back today on when Anderson was in the area six months after the hurricane hit. We found these videos in the back of the vault when we cleaned out our office earlier this summer and felt they were to good not to share. We hope you enjoy this look back on some of the highlights of Anderson's field work ~

On Friday, February 24th, Anderson was live in Waveland, Mississippi. Where he shared and updated Pauline Conway's story and spoke with the town's mayor about the challenges still facing Waveland ~

Over the weekend Anderson rode on a float in the Mardi Gras parade on Sunday and stayed to anchor AC360 from the area on Monday and Tuesday.

Monday, February 27th , found Anderson in St. Bernard's Parish and anchoring from a shrimp boat that was brought inland during the hurricane and deposited in a cul-de-sac ~

First up was his behind the scenes report on Mardi Gras ~

Thanks for showing this footage showing Anderson as the great reporter and journalist he has been and still is.
Last week some bloggers claimed "he lost his credibility", "his career is over".
How so? Why?
I still consider him as one of the most credible journalists in the US and I cannot see how a private problem (he might or might not have) will spoil that.
