Last shot of a long day...

Finally getting a horizontal break after 12 hr day... Can AC360° viewers guess which CNN correspondent is wearing the soggy sneakers?

    From a Louisiana native now living overseas for the US military. This was the worst hurricane coverage I've ever seen. The "Levee Bust Lust" in New Orleans between Anderson Cooper and Blitzer was appalling. They covered very little of the areas that were really getting pummeled. They just couldn't wait to see another major flood so the gov't blame game could start again. How about covering the areas that got hit hard instead of looking for the big flood in New Orleans. I extend my gratitude to those who worked hard to correct the lessons from Katrina and limit the loss of life and property.

    1 million peopple displaced by the floods in India, who cares about Gustav another Republican media ploy to divert our attention from their incompetence. They're telling us loud and clear "See, we got it right this time",(now that it doesn't matter anymore and the {Katrina} damage is done and the city ruined.)

    I really like your sneakers, however, for your next hurricane assignment, please look into purchasing Wanchese waders. I am so thankful for the safety of our CNN crew. Great job in keeping the people informed, best hurricane team and best political team.

    Just a Note to Tell You That Several Families That Came To Memphis To Escape the Hurricane Were Victums of Robberies & Very Unsanitary Conditions in the "Shelters" While in Memphis , One Pastor's Car was Vandalized, DVD Player, & GPS, & All the Speakers
    were Taken.
    WHAT A "WELCOME" To the City!

    All The Schools Here In Desoto Co. Ms, Were put on Alert to Open Their Cafeterias To Feed Evacuees. Just Glad We don't live in Memphis!

    While your coverage of the hurricane GUSTAV is brilliant, it is sad that Anderson Cooper had to feature Obama more on the disaster than McCain who was actually physically helping out today on the 1st day of the Republican Convention!! Give him a break!
    This is another obvious proof of your favoring Obama. Is that fair? CNN prides itself in "getting facts and demanding truth" ..... what facts, what truth when you are so biased, when you choose who you want and don't want! Anderson Cooper, John King and Campbell Brown, all from CNN, are the ones who are Obama fanatics! It's okay to adore him but please not on the job!
    Hillary might have lost not because Obama is better but because she ran a bad campaign but the media surely helped Obama win! And CNN did it big time!
    It's very disappointing to see your coverage of Politics especially at these history-making times. Be fair, CNN!

    Great coverage. Even when I change to see what is being said on the other networks, it is only a momentary departure. As a journalist and former broadcaster I am particular about the quality and skills of the announcers and newscasters that I choose to listen to and watch.

    Thanks for the good work.

    I don't know 'bout those shoes bein hot, but the coverage has been great. Anderson Cooper has been one of my favorites since the war started!!! I gave birth to my oldest son one month before the war started so I had to wonder what kind of world I brought him into to. If I wanted to know something Anderson Cooper was there to inform. Of all the CNN personalities, I look to Anderson for the best, down to earth, informative, and honest coverage, and thats not easy to say for the media 😉

    Why are you only discussing New Orleans and not where the storm hit the hardest i.e. Lafourche and Terrebonne parishes? There was a lot of damage to those small communities. Not everything revolves around New Orleans.

    I think I speak for most of the viewers across the nation, we really appreciate the work you reporters do.
    As crazy as it sounds, I would love to be a reporter doing just what you were doing today, putting it all on the line to show the people of the nation what is happening in these intense situations. It takes people like you to provide the most realistic viewpoints for us, and we thank you for that.

    Thanks to all of you for excellent journalism as always, but why is St Bernard Parish mentioned so rarely? My daughter and I volunteered at the Community Center of St Bernard and were impressed with the tenacity, committment to their community as well as the still existing day to day struggle for the basics necessities of daily living that most of us in the USA take for granted. I would appreciate some more coverage there. How did they fare today?

    Thanks! Jaime
