3/6/14 Anderson's coverage of events in Kiev has been really good. He seems to be covering all the angles. From things I have read CNN seems to be only media source on scene. Only saw bits &pieces of the broadcasts today but appears tensions are still running high.All in all we are getting good idea of the turmoil. Thanks Anderson.

I don't care for 360 bringing in all these Putin apologists and thinly disguised Obama critics, like Stephen Cohen on the show. Rarely do they present someone from the Obama Administration's perspective on the Ukraine crisis. Anderson said in a recent interview that it's not his job to tell people what to think or believe, he just gives the facts and lets them decide for themselves, however, if you're only allowing certain types of viewpoints to be aired on your news program, you are in a way pushing a narrative and an agenda. Maybe it's the 360 producers or CNN management that wants this, but still Anderson's a bit disingenuous when he talks about how he just presents the facts.

Andrew Sullivan wrote a great article on AC's pal John McCain on why it's ludicrous for news outlets to elevate his opinions or take him seriously after his MANY poor judgment calls. Don't know what AC admires about the guy.
