    March 1, 2010 Anderson Cooper Said to Meet With CBS News Executives By BRIAN STELTER Do CBS News executives have their sights set on Anderson Cooper? Mr. Cooper, a prime time CNN anchor, already contributes to “60 Minutes,” the prestigious CBS newsmagazine. And the relationship could expand. Monday’s New York Times reports: CBS executives, mindful that Katie Couric’s contract expires in a little over a year, have talked to Anderson Cooper of CNN about an anchor job, according to two TV veterans informed of the meeting. The meeting took place months ago, well before Mr. Cooper was dispatched to cover...

    It started as a simple term project for an MIT class on ethics and law on the electronic frontier. Two students partnered up to take on the latest Internet fad: the online social networks that were exploding into the mainstream. With people signing up in droves to reconnect with classmates and old crushes from high school, and even becoming online “friends” with their family members, the two wondered what the online masses were unknowingly telling the world about themselves. The pair weren’t interested in the embarrassing photos or overripe profiles that attract so much consternation from parents and potential employers....

    This will certainly be mulled over by the talking heads in the mainstream media for days to come. At her 2010 Conservative Political Action Committee speech on Feb. 20, conservative author and commentator took the usual shots at the former President Bill Clinton and former Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards, but she also let it be known that the she's not a fan of the mainstream media. And she showed how the media totally missed it with the future of the GOP. "What a difference a year makes," Coulter said. "This time last year, the Republican Party, according to...

    There'll be little room for history in Anderson Cooper's new home. Before he bought his century-old firehouse in Greenwich Village, bronze plaques honoring members of Fire Patrol 2 who died in the line of duty -- including on 9/11 -- were stripped from the building to make it easier to sell. The plaques were rescued from a pile of trash by Arnie Roma, whose son, Keith, a member of the fire patrol that worked out of the building, died on Sept. 11, 2001, rescuing people from the World Trade Center. A plaque in his son's honor graced the firehouse's facade....
  • Update from Haiti: Anderson Cooper Shows Himself During an Aftershock - Video 1/21/10

    Here is video of Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta giving an update on the situation in Haiti. Cooper opens by showing a clip of himself during an aftershock. He introduced the clip by saying they had just had an aftershock, and they thought they would show viewers what an aftershock looked like. Well, the clip was far less than dramatic. You could barely see anything other than a mild reaction from Cooper. But the rest of the report shows Dr. Sanjay Gupta getting supplies at the Port-Au-Prince Airport to continue trying to treat people. Gupta said there are many...

    A CNN anchorman has been filmed saving a bleeding Haitian boy during a violent looting attempt in Port-au-Prince. The footage of the dramatic rescue reveals the increasingly desperate situation in the earthquake-ravaged nation as newsmen become newsmakers. Another CNN correspondent has already attracted media attention for performing brain surgery on a 12-year-old Haitian girl. Yesterday CNN’s Anderson Cooper, accompanied by three CNN crew members and a photojournalist, was reporting on the looting from outside a store when the boy was struck with a piece of concrete. Cooper described the incident on his CNN blog. "It quickly became a free-for-all …...

Reportedly, the boys was taken away by others and his condition is not known. . . . (VIDEO)

    Here is video of CNN's Anderson Cooper talking to Larry King tonight about what is being done with the dead in Haiti. Cooper describes the mass graves that are being used to bury the thousands who have died. Cooper became emotional in describing what is taking place in Haiti as "Stupid Death." King asked him what he meant, and Cooper said he meant death that did not need to happen - the little girl who could be saved if there was a doctor to amputate her leg; someone who could survive if they had antibiotics. But too often, that does...

    Breaking: Tonight on "AC360," Anderson Cooper announced that Erica Hill is leaving the program and CNN "for an exciting future at CBS News." Earlier, we reported that an announcement would be coming this evening. Hill has been co-host of CBS' "Early Show" Saturday Edition with Chris Wragge since September of 2008. Hill had been with the CNN since 2003, when she started as an anchor for Headline News. She had been a full-time correspondent and substitute anchor for "AC360" since 2008. In recent weeks, she'd also been one of the rotating anchors for "CNN Tonight." An emotional Hill appeared on...

    Is it any wonder CNN is having ratings trouble? Here is video from Anderson Cooper's show "AC 360" last night where they did a segment plugging a new CNN site called In the segment, they did a quiz asking Anderson Cooper questions. If you go to the 2:27 mark of the video, you see Anderson Cooper asked where Notre Dame University is, which he did not know. He was told Indiana, and then was asked if he knew where the state of Indiana is on the map - He did not know! They found it for him! Cooper said...

    Anderson Cooper is fading in the ratings. His 10 p.m. show, "Anderson Cooper 360," has declined 62% in total viewers and 70% in adults 25-54 from November 2008, according to Nielsen figures. Last month, in Cooper's time slot, Fox News' "On the Record" attracted an average viewership of 1.9 million while "360" averaged 672,000... From the start of 2009, he began losing a huge chunk of his nightly audience.

    "Is Anderson Cooper gay?" That's the big question once again circulating around the Web ... only this time it's not so much is he, but who is he dating and why hasn't he come out yet. Last week, Gawker, Page Six and Perez Hilton started buzzing about supposedly closeted Cooper's rumored new beau, and the glut of attention was accompanied by an almost crushing sense of déjà vu. Why? Because Cooper's sexuality is hardly a fresh topic. As Gawker's Brian Moylan said in an October 29th post on the subject: "Saying Cooper is gay is no longer a scoop. It's...

    National Review Online ^ | 10/19/2009 | Jay Nordlinger
    Yesterday, I had a note on Anita Dunn, Fox News, CNN, and all that jazz. I said that a CNN anchorman, Anderson Cooper, had coined this “teabagger” epithet against anti-Obama protesters. “Teabagging” is a sexual practice defined in that earlier note of mine: and Cooper used it in a very specific context. Almost immediately, Democratic pundits and politicians picked up the epithet, “mainstreaming” it. (Of course, when something begins with a CNN anchorman, it pretty much starts life mainstream.) Many, many readers wrote me yesterday saying that George Stephanopoulos, host of This Week, had used “teabagger” or “teabagging” that very...

    Over the weekend a tipster directed our attention to a part of the “President Obama’s African Journey” AC 360 special featuring the interviews Anderson Cooper conducted with President Barack Obama during his trip to Ghana. One line of the President’s stood out as possible fodder for criticism in much the same way Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s “wise Latina” comment became a conservative talking point. Here’s the full passage: That’s part of the African American experience. You are, in some ways, connected to this distant land, but on the other end, you’re about as American as it gets in some ways. African...

    Admit it. Didn't your eyes start to glaze over last night after the first couple of hours of continuous coverage of Michael Jackson's death on the cable news channels? Gone were stories about today's vote on the Global Warming bill or the upcoming vote on a health care plan, whatever that may be. Even the Mark Sanford affair, much to the dismay of many in the leftwing blogosphere, was knocked off the airwaves. After several hours of this non-stop coverage, even your intrepid reporter started to doze off...aided by copious quantities of wine. However, in the midst of this media...

    Should there be a background check for national reporters? One wonders. On June 21, CNN’s Anderson Cooper aired a special report for CBS’ “60 Minutes.” In this report, Cooper repeated the tired, discredited, blatantly incorrect idea that 90% of Mexican drug cartels’ arms supply comes from the United States. In addition, Cooper showed some interesting B-roll footage of seized weapon, some of which clearly cannot be bought on the civilian market. Initially, one might note the M16A1, M16A2, M4, and what appears to be a standard NATO-issue M60. There are, however, semi-automatic civilian versions of some of these weapons available...
