Richard Danzig and Fareed Zakaria debunk claims made during the presidential debate about the strength, needs, and cost of the U.S. Navy.
Occasionally, after the first run of O'Reily, Hannity and Gretta we tune into CNN. Tuesday night's 360 show demonstrates why we can only tollerate brief periods of CNN. The criticism of Romney's comment regarding the size of the Navy and the assertion that Obama's administration had increased the number of ships is patently false. If you will check the date of the contract's let for super carriers and other ships you will find that George W. Bush's administration planned or contracted for the last four super carriers. Further, Obama's administration has done very little to make our military more technolocically advanced, except to expand the use of drones developed by the Bush administration. We consider Fareed Zakaria to be a left wing zellot and CNN's trending to be akin to MSNBC. We find that Cooper's demeanor during the October 23rd telecast to rival that of Chris Matthews. – – To bad CNN has lost its 1990's objectiveness.
I found the comments on the navy by the President really offensive because of his arrogance and sarcasm toward Mitt Romney. What a different tone from 4 years ago. I don't think he likes competition.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
