  • Cooper is all over the place: Haiti, Afghanistan, New Orleans...wherever there is breaking news, Anderson is there and...sometimes with his sleeves rolled up. He's the Real Thing in Journalism. E. M. Albano www.albano-theletters.commoreless

    I have written for a small paper as a "political junkie" and probably differ with Anderson on political issues, but...without a doubt, Anderson Cooper is one of the most...if not THE best Journalist on any network. He could write the book on Professionalism. He displays sincerity, empathy, and outstanding knowledge on the subjects for which he is reporting. P.S. I could go on and on, but I am going to go over the limit in word count, but this system is not counting correctly and keeps informing me that I don't have the minimum of 100 words. Sorry for the 'glitch' in your system CNN!

  • Anderson Cooper can make even the most dull news stories interesting to learn about; I give this series my highest recommendation.

    I began watching Anderson Cooper 360° back when it first debuted, and a lot of things have changed since those early days. For example, my favorite segment of the show, the nth degree, was put to an end after the series had been around for a year or so; I know that segments shouldn't matter that much, since Anderson Cooper is what makes the show special, but I felt a bit slighted when the show changed so dramatically. However, Anderson Cooper is a classy and respectable individual and I just love the way in which he presents the news; he is emotional, yet reserved, and I believe the way he handles his duties is impeccable. Unlike most news people, he actually travels to the story, which is what I believe is most impressive of all. With the success he has had, he could easily choose a nice career behind a desk for the rest of his life and still find success, but he continues to venture out into the world in order to find the real story. That is what makes Anderson Cooper 360° so special; it's what makes us find Anderson Cooper to be such an incredible individual. He is one of the most fair anchors on CNN and he seems to actually care about doing a good job and remaining objective as a journalist. If you want to watch the news, but don't want to see some robot behind a desk, I'd encourage you to check this series out.moreless
  • Anderson Cooper hosts a great news program that is enjoyable to watch.

    I didn't start watching Anderson Cooper 360° until the end of June, mainly because I was not much of a fan of news programs. That however changed after watching Anderson for a few days, I found that I really enjoyed the way he and his colleagues presented the news with both seriousness and an occasional lighthearted sense of humor mixed together.



    What I like about the program is how Anderson does a good job in reporting the news from both political parties in Washington in the segment Raw Politics and how numerous citizens groups work to keep the politicians in office honest if it comes to using taxpayer dollars inappropriately. Another thing that I enjoy about the program is how Anderson and his colleagues don't shy away from reporting on serious social issues such as how people around the world treat their environment, with numerous installments of CNN's "Planet in Peril" series as an example, or in getting regular people's reactions after disasters occur.



    These are a few reasons why I have come to enjoy watching Anderson Cooper 360°. It's great the way the program makes you stop and think about the goings on in the world around us. I also like the way Anderson occasionally shares his opinion of the story he is reporting, but doesn't let it cloud the way he presents the news.moreless
  • Really enjoy this news program!

    When I first saw this show I thought that Anderson Cooper wouldn't be taken really seriously. I mean he hosted the reality tv show the Mole and also was of royalty with Gloria Vanderbuilt. But really he is great and reports the news no-nonsense style. Back when I was in high school, I used to see him on the tv news thing Channel One. As I think when he was younger. Plus now, he has gone on to greater things. And this show, really puts him on top. This is his moment to shine. One minute he can be really no-nonsense, informate, tough but fair. Next minute, he can be relaxing and funny!moreless
