I rememeber when Anderson Cooper was on "Channel One"- my public school's morning indoctrination by television. We had to watch it every morning after we said the pledge of allegiance (yes, we still said it then). It's no surprise that he ended up on CNN.
Good to know I wasn't the only one who had to struggle through Channel One. Here's hoping it still does not exist. I literally lost days off my life by being forced to watch/wait through CH1. Everytime I channel surf by CNN now and Cooper on I've just got to laugh. Anderson is maybe 35 and colors his hair grey to look older! That's about as fake as CNN's *objective news coverage*.

Anyone else pick up a certain odd vibe from Anderson? Well, not exactly odd, maybe strange, not that's not the word I'm looking for. Peculiar...? Nah...
Channel One is still around, and it was shown at my high school for the four years I was there (I graduated this past May). Most of the time, though, the teachers didn't force us to watch it, we'd just use it as a short break/study hall and it'd serve as background noise. I did watch it a few times, and it was still mainly commercials and liberally biased "reporting."
