Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 3/13/08

Tonight on 360°, another campaign controversy.  At issue, a sermon given by Barack Obama's minister at the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.  Barack Obama has already distanced himself from his pastor, but he's also called him his spiritual advisor.  Tonight, we'll show you the sermon and let you decide.

We'll also have a story we've been promising for a few days: An up close look at Michelle Obama, and we'll bring you the new developments in the Florida and Michigan primary mess.

And, oh yeah, Eliot Spitzer. Can't forget him.

I want to mention this again: We’ve been getting complaints about how long it takes to post some comments.   We wish we could post them all, but with more than 1000 every night, it is not possible.

Here’s a tip: shorter comments are more likely to get posted. If they are short AND relevant to what is on the program, even better.

So no more 500-word essays on who you think is the best candidate and why.  There are other forums for that.

As always, we’ll start at 10p ET and stop at 11p ET.  See you then!

    Actually looking forward to the piece with Bill Clinton. Hope he can shed more light on some of Hillary's work as First Lady, including Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Bosnia, China, Rwanda, and the remaining 70+ expeditions.. and more since Senator.

    "The Shot" this evening was lame– Erica's video was funny, though.

    There needs to be more out there on these religious supporters of McCain and Obama. They really can get folks to feed into some real negativity.

    AC360 is slowly, but surely morphing into a "tv rag mag". How about reporting on some actual news and less tabloid fodder?

    Now we know why Obama does not respect the pledge of Alligance!!! learning from his pastor "God D... America"

    I ask everyone to view the entire video before forming an opinion. This is our future President. It should not be This pastor is a very hateful person.

    Iagree with the person that said Sen. Obama has gone to this church for 20 yrs.Attending for thatlong he must agree with what he preaches.If he didn't he would have left the church long ago.

    Ok, I would like to know how you pick the Beat 360 winner? Is it a vote? So many submittals, it must be hard to choose.

    It's one thing if Obama himself were saying things like that, but how can he control what somebody else says? I think it is unfair to make assumptions about the church when all we have seen is a little clip.

    Angel if you watch 360 on a regular basis, 360 is not biased, they cover all 3 candidates fairly equally.

    March 13, 2008 at 10:52 pm |
  30. Adina

    How can 360 be for Clinton and against Obama and at the same time for Obama and against Clinton. If you want to see real bias check out another network. 360 is so good at showing different stories from all sides. One night they may be a more negative about Obama and then one night more negative about Clinton. I wish everyone would stop accusing them of being bias. We all see what we want to see based on what side we're on.

    So we're seeing Hillary, Bill and Chelsea on clinton's side... but only Barack and Michelle on Obamas, can we even it up and show someone else on Barack's side?? just please, not his spiritual advisor!
