Many of you had the same question about AC360's exclusive jailhouse interview with Michael Jackson's doctor: What was going through Anderson's mind when Dr. Conrad Murray started singing "The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot"?
Producer Jack Gray sat down with Anderson to relive the unforgettable live TV moment and ask him on your behalf.
Understand that it's not easy to surprise a globetrotting veteran journalist, but Anderson sure was, confirming it was the first time someone broke into song during an interview. Reflecting on the two-part segment, he says, "it took a very bizarre twist" when Murray switched from explaining to singing about his connection with Jackson.
Anderson Cooper asks Pastor Fred Luter, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, why he linked nuclear threats from North Korea with the debates in the U.S. over same-sex marriage and gays in the Boy Scouts.
He was answering a question posed by a Christian radio host about whether God was punishing Americans for their "slide into immorality." He said, in part, "I don't think it's just a coincidence."
In his interview with Anderson, Pastor Luter clarified his comments and spoke about what he sees as the problem with trying to redefine marriage. Watch the video for more on their conversation.
CNN's Kyung Lah reports from Seoul, South Korea, where they cope almost daily with threats from their hostile neighbors.
"This is a country that has, for more than a decade, heard this threat out of Pyongyang directed to Seoul that we're going to melt you down in a sea of fire. They're used to it," Lah says about the reaction there.
But people do notice a difference in the way North Korea is threatening their safety right now compared to what they experienced when Kim Jong-il was in charge. His son's regime is issuing threats more rapidly, triggering concerns that the South Korean government could overreact, resulting in a clash on the border.
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.
