    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....

    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 …...

Cooper saw the boy bleeding from the head and picked the boy up and took him to the side of the street to try and get him help. 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...

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...

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 déjŕ 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...

    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...

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.

    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...

But while viewers may flock to the network for election day or the Inauguration, day 130 is a different story. CNN, which just took home a Peabody Award for its 2008 election coverage, and dominated cable-news ratings on days when politics took center stage, is having trouble getting those viewers back on other nights.

Isn’t that, in fact, emboldening our enemies?

"I don't think it's my job to disparage, or encourage, which oddly other networks seemed to be doing. Protest is the great right of all Americans, and it's not my job in any way to make fun of people or disparage what they're doing." Cooper said he regretted making the comment.

Well, she might as well take it because Cooper's fan base is doing just that already. Cooper's ratings have been in a sharp decline all year, and so far the month of May is no exception. According to Nielsen, the audience for the 10-11 p.m. hour of his show so far this month is 933,000 viewers. This is the first time he's fallen below the one-million mark since the dog days of last August. Anderson is losing...

    OK, I get it. It’s a very funny joke. “Tea party” and “teabagging” both have the word “tea” in them — a witticism worthy of Oscar Wilde. Or at least worthy of our age’s eminent wit, CNN’s own Anderson Cooper. Maybe I’m the wrong guy to complain about this. After all, I made what little reputation I have by drinking while reading the news — and being more than a little dirty-minded about it all. That said, the sexual innuendo isn’t — for once — what interests me. What is interesting is watching the teabagging meme take hold all across...

    CNN's Anderson Cooper should have his dirty, little gutter mouth washed out with soap. Then he should be fired. Cooper, a cover boy on the homosexual magazine "The Advocate" and listed as among the most powerful "gays" in the country by OUT magazine, made what can only be characterized as an obscene and disgusting comment during CNN's biased coverage of Wednesday's "tea party" protests around the country. "It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging," he said. That was a revolting attempt at "inside humor" by Anderson Cooper. "Tea-bagging" is known in the homosexual subculture as a practice involving a particular...

After providing precious little advance coverage - a good way to hold down the crowd, one supposes - they openly mocked participants, even doing so in subtly profane ways. Amazingly, anchors such as Anderson Cooper on CNN and Rachel Maddow on MSNBC snickered about the participants at the tea parties being "teabaggers" and "teabagging" knowing full well that the term is slang for a disguisting sexual act. At one point, a guest on Maddows show even explained that ...

    It's not exactly an earth shattering scandal but CNN did get caught in a bit of a fib when they declared they were the first to use hologram technology in a broadcast featuring Wolf Blitzer interviewing a Jessica Yellin "hologram" on election day. I put "hologram" in quotes because a perturbed Don Reisinger of CNET News declared that it was false advertising since CNN wasn't using a real hologram. CNN soon backed down from their hologram claim in the face of not only criticism but mockery from the other networks. I suppose the best way to respond is by humor...

Cooper took the first shot at the president, analogizing his performance in this crisis to that during Hurricane Katrina.

Wooten says he has been offered $30,000 to tell his story to a tabloid. The Obama campaign has reached out to the head of his union.

    CNN Anderson Cooper Show | 7/14/08
    Was just watching Anderson Cooper's CNN show, which focused on the New Yorker's satirical Obama cover. One of the panelists, an African American gentleman whose name I missed, approvingly repeated a quote (I think from Ossie Davis) that the New Yorker cover is "America attempting to raise its ugly racist head, and we must be prepared to cut it off"!I felt the rest of the panelists wince in shock, but they said nothing to condemn the remark. As you know, the New Yorker is a liberal magazine that was spoofing misconceptions about Obama, it is hardly a KKK periodical. Seemed...

    Anderson Cooper was talking last night about fundamentalist Christian attacks on Barack Obama with minister Al Sharpton, author Roland Martin and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. The talk turned toward religious tolerance, and suddenly Sharpton was outing CNN's prettiest anchor as, gosh, some kind of sinner? "I might think what you do, Anderson, is going to put you in hell, but I'm going to defend your right to get there," Sharpton said. Then everyone laughed, because virulent, institutionalized homophobia is hilarious, and Anderson blushed and managed to say something dignified, while probably secretly wishing he was officially gay so...

    Who cares if our next president has chosen as his "spiritual guide" someone who calls on God to damn America, and believes the US brought 9-11 on itself? Completely off track! Let's get back to the important stuff. You know, like the fine print of the candidate's plan to nationalize health care. That in a nutshell is Anderson Cooper's kvetch about the controversy over the outrageous statements made by Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright, Jr., the pastor of Barack Obama's church and the man Obama has described as his spiritual guide and advisor. Cooper made his comments on his 360 show...

    Remember the gay retired brigadier general who chastised Republicans for their stance on gays in the military at Wednesday's CNN/YouTube debate? Turns out Keith Kerr was packing a partisan sword. He's served as a member of an advisory team on gay and lesbian issues to the Sen. Hillary Clinton Campaign. In the words of CNN's debate crew: D'oh! And here's Anderson Cooper falling on his nonpartisan sword. So how did this slip under CNN's radar? Maybe CNN could have checked its own website. Instead, they paid for Kerr's airfare and hotel to St. Petersburg for the debate. This is a...
  • CNN Defends Debate, Says Vetting Was 'Focused on the Questions'

    CNN is defending its job in vetting questions for last night's debate, reports Politico's Kenneth Vogel: The retired general who quizzed Republican presidential candidates about gays and lesbians in the military was not the only person linked to a Democratic presidential candidate who got to ask a question at Wednesday’s CNN/YouTube debate. CNN also aired questions from supporters of Democratic candidates John Edwards and Barack Obama. And that’s fine by the network, which is standing by its question selection process and lashing out at critics who say the debate demonstrated CNN’s liberal bias. “We’re focused on the questions, not the...

    Controversy erupted last night after Republican presidential candidates participating in the CNN/YouTube debate received a question from an undisclosed gay activist and supporter of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Retired Brig. Gen. Keith H. Kerr told candidates he was an “openly gay man,” member of the “California National Reserve”, and asked “why you think that American men and women in uniform are not professional enough to serve with gays and lesbians?” He did not mention that he is a member of the LGBT Americans For Hillary Steering Committee and a co-chair on Hillary Clinton's National Military Veterans group. Kerr was in the...

    CNN and YouTube had weeks to select the questions for last night's debate, poring over 5,000 submissions to select the handful that made it to the candidates. They even flew a few of them to the debate in order to allow them a response to the answers provided by the Republican presidential hopefuls. Yet within minutes of the debate, bloggers discovered what CNN missed -- that one prominent questioner flown to Florida by CNN worked on the campaign of a Democratic rival, and that at least three other questioners have declared support for Democratic candidates. Michelle Malkin rounds it up:...

    CNNÂ’s Anderson Cooper interviewed a "squinting" Bill Clinton for a segment on WednesdayÂ’s "Anderson Cooper 360" (a 2-minute clip was featured on WednesdayÂ’s "The Situation Room"), and if there was speculation on why Cooper, instead of someone "higher up the food chain" like Wolf Blitzer, interviewed Clinton on the occasion of the "Clinton Global Initiative" annual meeting, it could be because Cooper is one of the "featured attendees" at this meeting. Cooper moderated a "working session" panel discussion on Wednesday on "The Most Effective Strategies for the Most Vulnerable Children." Cooper joins other members of the mainstream media who are...
