    AIG giving back the bonus is as dropping the bucket of water in the sea hoping to increase the sea level,

    think about it !!!!!

    Hmm, the Octomom is not exactly magnetic camera material, is she? I suppose she has to figure out some way to support those children. I really feel for them.

    ayyyy...yay...yay... alright! why ruin a good night, Anderson? do you really have to show the octuplet mom? listen to Randi.

    Just because the woman with eight children "is talking" , it doesn't mean that AC360 has to put her on TV. Please, consider gettting away from the pack when it comes to stories like this. It might be easy to cover and cheap to produce, but it makes your newscast look cheap too.

    I don't think being rich is bad. But flaunting it is at least in extremely bad taste, especially when your fellow average Joe is the one now footing the bill. And, well, I see a lot of people scorn folks on welfare for buying "junk food". Kind of "fair play".

    Hey, Anderson! Pretty awesome idea here. You do a fantastic job!

    I wish I could think of something worth asking, but frankly I have too much on my mind . . .

    Still, just look at how many posts you already have!

    Have a good evening,

    One of the problems in Mexico is that the drug cartel provides services that the government does not, so the people are loyal to the cartels.

    if these contracts for the bonus were legal i wouldn't have given any of the bonus back. these bonus were signed 2007 for 2008 t0 be paid in2009, wich thry were. the goverment screwed up.the only thing they should noe is toask aig to pay that back along what we loaned them.this woukd probably if done properly.

    Good show tonight.

    Goodnight All! Talk to yall tomorrow.

    That video of the Octomom just makes me laugh. "They had a safe trip home. The police were able to block off the streets." lol. I

    Anderson, its good to know I'm not the only one a little fed up with the Octo-Mom!

    Good night Anderson, Randi Kaye, 306 team and fellow bloggers -

    Good show tonight, Anderson - good mix of topics, although I could do without Octomom.

    Looking forward to President Obama's press conf. tomorrow night with the "Best Poitical Team on Television!"

    Until tomorrow -

    Ha Ha, thank you for your view on the Octomom!! My heart just goes out to those babies though. When people finally stop talking about her how on earth are those kids going to be able to have any type of lifestyle. I can only hope that she is monitored, I bet once people stop caring about her she will take it out on those kids.

    Anderson is cracking me up. I love it.

    please quit the octomom news.

    Great coverage by Gary Tuckman (one of my favorite reporters).

    So, Bernie is eccentric and suffers (possibly) from OCD, i'm personally not surprised. And, yes, he obviously "bought" his people.

    It's that time again, this hour always goes by so fast, but i would'nt miss your show Anderson, for the world.

    Goodnight, Ac, crew , Randi Kay, and my fellow bloggers! Have a good day tomorrow.

    And PLEASE , no more octo-mom.

    Randi and Anderson.....my thoughts exactly on Octomom. Can't wait until she's out of the news.

    March 23, 2009 at 10:57 pm |
  38. Casey Jones - Palm Springs, CA

    At least the information about Bernie Made-off is now adding some intrigue. I'm sure there's more "interesting personal facts' coming...

    I wish CNN wouldn't give Octomon any more air time.

    Octumom needs to be renamed... Drama mom!!!

    Why did we keep calling Nadia Suleman the "octomom"? What is the term for "14-mom"?

    Oh congrats to Nadya!
    on her babies arriving home...
