CNN has recently taken on the journalistically dubious practice of embedding itself in the news rather than more than I think is appropriate. Exhibit A: Robin Meade parajumping with Bush the Elder. We can only hope that we will not AC and the Pres joining in a tribal dance.

Sure, but the ratings will probably be so much better this way!

Because that’s where President Obama is currently. It would make no sense to go anywhere else to interview him.

@Marina: I can easily imagine AstroChuck and the Pres joining in a tribal dance.

Africa puts the 360 in AC360.

The background is so much more dramatic in Africa than in Washington, and perhaps Anderson Cooper likes traveling.
