AC360 on Thursday wasn't really AC360. It wasn't even a news show, it was a talk show. It was very reminiscent of Oprah, when she would talk for an hour to the grieving parents of a murdered child.

Trayvon Martin's parents have been through hell, their son's death was tragic and horrible and they have not seen justice done.

I might have stayed for more of Anderson's interview if I hadn't already seen two interviews of Martin's parents earlier in the day. So when Anderson's started it seemed repetitious. If you've been reading my posts all week you already know where I went when I changed the channel.

Hayes had a variety of news. Anderson didn't even have a Bulletin.

The AC360 website states on Friday Anderson will cover the death of Oscar Grant by BART guards. Okay but I hope it's not going to be most of the hour. And I hope that if 360 will be primarily a crime show (a la Nancy Grace) from now on, that Anderson will let us all know upfront.

Anderson handled the interview with Trayvon's parents very well. For me, they are far more "relatable" than B37. I'm sorry they weren't able to receive the justice that they deserved for the murder of their son.
