A story in today’s Variety asserts that “CNN is permanently shifting to taped programming for the second hour of Anderson Cooper 360.” And just when we started panicking about what we’d do without our daily 120-minute live Anderson fix, CNN spokesperson Christa Robinson emerges out of nowhere to dismiss that report as “flat wrong.”
“AC360 continues to be a two hour program from 10 to midnight,” says Robinson. “At 11pm, Anderson reports live for 10-15 minutes and stays live as news warrants.” And it stands to reason that yesterday, there simply wasn’t very much news, presumably because it was the first night of Rosh Hashanah and the media’s still run by the Jews.
In any event, however, we’re relieved. For one thing, we just sort feel more comfortable knowing where Anderson is after dark. And for another, we just can’t seem to shake the feeling that CNN and Anderson Cooper tapes just don’t mix.
