  1. my favorite line from the "Web Crash 2007" video:

    "...a letter he transmitted to us via an archaic telephone line based network of low quality printers."

  2. I think Erica's slightly-too-knowing laugh was more of a give away than Cooper's remark...

  3. I doubt AC was suggesting her husband had nothing to worry about because Anderson is gay. I think he meant the idea that there is something going on between the two of them because of baby porducts in a magazine is "clearly nothing to worry about." I think Anderson thought that little segment was a waste of time, as did many.

  4. I think we are all waiting for Anderson to come out as a serious journalist.

  5. That Filipino prison re-enactment of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' is fantastic...and hilarious (doesn't the rest of the world know Michael Jackson is a pathetic joke?)...and did anyone else wonder how they managed to keep a tranny safe in that group of inmates?

  6. Gino, regardless of what Anderson meant, Rascal is right: Erica's laugh was more telling.

    Anon, good one. Although I seem to recall him being a decent journalist a few years ago. Then CNN decided to turn him into a brand... He sold out is what happened.

  7. think what a great place the world would be if all men just danced together.
    "anon," very funny. "rich," you make a good point; the coop started out as a good journalist. now he's just another (albeit, pretty) talking head.

  9. Did anyone else find the end of the Thriller number a bit, um, freaky?... Dozens of inmates closing in on an inmate in drag, pawing and terrifying "her"... Interesting rehabilitation technique.
