    Whatever happened to "Moneyline, with Lou Dobbs"? CNN should've had him stick to that before they gave him the green light for all those daily rants.

    I loved him on WNN too, and I really like him. I liked when AC360 was on for an hour right before Countdown with Keith Olbermann, my favorite news show. I would switch from CNN to MSNBC and get my daily fix of cynical, humorous, intelligent news. I don't like the 2 hour format as much either, but Anderson's still a favorite.

    Are you kidding? He's never said that. He is one of the few news people who covers the problems of the middle class, illegal immigration, gas prices, etc.

    Reminds me of Walter Cronkite, and the days when newsmen and women really cared about their audience and the news, instead of merely being "meat puppets.

    :(

    Of course they are. I get the impression that Anderson is "out" in his personal life, but there isn't exactly any reason for him to announce on CNN anything about his personal life or sexual orientation. CNN anchors don't generally discuss on the air who they are dating and Anderson is no different. And there's no reason he should be.

    Plus, it allows all the midwestern housewives who think he's cute to keep thinking he's cute. Because he is cute. And he's smart enough to know that he needs those housewives to keep watching him if he wants to stay the top guy at CNN.

    I also loved him on WNN.

    My favorite is Countdown with Keith Olbermann, but I used to like C360 a whole lot more with its old format. This isn't as good, and I don't feel as compelled to watch it. :( Too bad, because I love AC.

    I agree, everyone knows he's gay, but he doesn't talk about it, which is fine. It allows those who don't want to know to stay in denial, and he can keep being revelant to the people who would turn him off if they knew.

    I'm guessing you googled Lou Dobbs and ended up here and had to post (Hi Lou!). This is a very strange thread to bump 4+ months later.

    I was beginning to think it was the Dr. Sanjay Gupta channel.

    Anderson isnt too bad. Olbermann is boring. I only watch CNN at airports these days, along with most TV news.
