Anderson Cooper / Poor service!

United States Review updated:
5
I have been watching CNN news lately and I have loved most of it except Anderson cooper's 360. He just comes off as this holier than thou who you can just see his feelings about whatever he is reporting. I watched him on Oprah Winfrey and thought here is a fair, hardworking guy. But lately, he almost seems a little racists at times. You can tell the difference when he is reporting about somebody black as opposed to somebody white.

For instance, when he reported on TI (the rapper) getting arrested. I mean he acted like the guy had been tried and convicted already. You could just see his biased opinion written all over his feebel little face. I have decided not to watch 360 until Anderson Cooper start acting more like a reporter who reports the news, instead of like the judge and jury in the courtroom.

Shame on him. If Oprah only knew!

I haven't noticed anything racial about Anderson Cooper's reporting at all.

However, I have a couple of major complaints about the program "Anderson Cooper 360".

A slogan they introduced was "Keeping them honest!" However, the program - and the way it promotes itself - is much less than honest.

The first thing to consider is that it is supposed to be a roundup of the news of the day, with commentary by experts, talking heads, etc., about the issues raised by the days news. That said, here are my complaints.

First, it appears in my TV guide as a Monday to Friday 2 hour program. In real life, the first hour is the the original material. The second hour - except perhaps for a few brief news updates - is a repeat of the first hour. So, as it's really a one-hour program that then goes into "repeats" within a minute, CNN and Anderson Cooper are falsely listing their program with the media. That's dishonest.

Second, Friday is listed the same as Monday to Thursday. But usually, Friday evening is an "Anderson Cooper 360 Special Report." In other words, it has nothing to do with the day's news. It's something they compile - and often repeat - at some earlier point in time, giving the staff the Friday night off but still passing the program off as Anderson Cooper 360. Again, it's dishonest.

I wouldn't complain if they were upfront, listing the show as one hour and the next hour as a repeat of the second hour. The only time that doesn't happen is when there is some catastrophe or special event. And I wouldn't complain if they listed Friday as "Anderson Cooper 360 Special Report" or "Special Documentary", but they don't. They make you watch a bit to see if it's going to be a news commentary program (which is special on a Friday) or a "night off for the crew".

I've complained to CNN, never received any response, and I guess they don't really believe in "Keeping it honest."
