I'm mean and heartless and did not like Monday's 360. I missed the first minute or two but watched that part here on ATA. Anderson did not say he was devoting the entire show to Newtown. If he had said that and if I had caught it, I probably would not have watched as much as I did.

The Newtown school shooting is important and it's the biggest reason for the current gun control debate. I watched most of the first half but then was actively channel surfing, checking back to 360 to see if any other news was being presented, either Lance Armstrong or the flu or the debt ceiling wrangling in D.C.

Newtown is heartbreaking but I wanted to hear about other news also.

Thanks for the photos of Anderson at the Help Haiti Home event. He looks awesome in that first photo.

AC360 was a lovely tribute to the children and their families. The way the community is handling the tragedy seems is very impressive. And I am an atheist but in this case I clearly see the benefit of some kind of faith in a being that now takes care of the children. It may be self-deception but the alternative is really terrible and I also like how they are trying to answer with love and compassion, not anger and hate.

Of course now the conspiracy theorists will have another field day with clips of parents and the big sister not crying in front of the camera. Yuck.

I wish there was footage of Anderson at the Haiti fundraiser. From what I have read he must have been quite funny.

Yes, indeed.
The conspiracy theorists, and who gives them all air time....?
The "Keeping them honest guy himself!"
Every nut case that's out there will be invited to come on his show to be sure.
I also can't understand the Newtown parents who were victims of this tragedy.
In today's NYT, it says that most of the victims own guns and take their families to gun ranges for target practice.
This is baffling.
Piers Morgan had parents who were affected personally from the tragedy and not one of them was for gun control.
If that's the culture of Newtown, than how can 'we' help them??
A big shout out to Governor Coumo for having the nerve to actually do something about guns and not try to change the conversation by saying, "Let's round up all the crazies and give them background checks."
Right. Guns don't kill people. People kill people...or I love the NRA.

Oh Anon, back at torturing yourself by following a guy you don't like and respect?

I think it is about time the conspiracy nuts craze is addressed. Those people do actual harm and they would do it no matter if he addressed it or not. This treatment of the families of victims of 8/11 has been going on since years for example.

It is time those nutcases experience some repercussions. They deserve to be portrayed as the scum they are, even harassing and threatening the families of victims and I hope the professor gets fired.

@trampadoo: I never left.
And to give these people air time is doing a disserve to those who are really interested in gun control.
Yes, keep up the rationalizations.
Good for the soul.

I know I know, that's what stalkers in a love/hate relationship with their object of desire do. You stick around.

And yes, making the conspiracy nuts look like the disgusting fools they are is totally going to influence the gun control legislations. Right. Just keep rationalising your obsessive dislike for everything Anderson does. :)

@trampadoo, I didn't know you had a PHD in love/hate relationships.
I did once admire AC, but he has been a disappointment and under the First Amendment I can say whatever, IMHO, most of which is political and has less to do with Anderson Cooper, and more to do with what he is reporting, or isn't.
You don't have to read it.
On the other hand, I think YOU rather enjoy it. HMM

As if anyone needed a PhD to conclude you got a problem if you stalk a man you dislike and disrespect since years. :)

And just like Anderson's right to critcise Tracy is protected by the first amendment, my right to criticise and even mock you is protected under it, as well has the freedom of speech laws of my country. Get used to it.

And yes, you amuse me. I have yet to read a constructive contribution to any discussion from you and you usually stick to pretty lame polemics but yes, I occasionally chuckle.
