Editor's Note: After last night's show, many of you commented on the “beer summit.” Some wondered why drinking alcohol was necessary and others asked why more hasn’t been said about what Prof. Gates allegedly said to Officer Crowley. On Randi Kaye's “convicted by canine” report, viewers felt it should have been mentioned that it was not the dog’s fault, but the “handler.” What do you think?


re: "convicted by canine" report: please place the blame where it belongs- on the corrupt investigator, not his dog who had the misfortune of being assigned to work with him. German shepherd dogs are a noble, honorable breed. Better than what can be said about most humans (especially this one).

As far as the "Beer Summit", don't we already have enough alcoholics who need a million Dollar liver transplant? Why not have Coffee and Donuts, that way the policemen can say he did his regular job on that day. And why the goofy VP was there?! No important funerals that day?

I am so sick of news on Michael Jackson. Every minute is devoted his news. Don't you have anything else to talk about?

My wife and I are very disappointed at the recent focus of AC 360 on the Michael Jackson story. It has become difficult to tell the difference between Nancy Grace, Showbiz Tonight and AC 360. Whatever happened to keeping us informed about the important issues facing the world as opposed to pandering to the lowest common denominator? AC 360 and the Situation Room seemed to be the last programs on CNN which focused on important national and international issues, and then there was only one.

We have regularly watched and felt Anderson Cooper's show added value in terms of addressing the important issues of the day. The current obsession with Michael Jackson's death and subsequent police investigation is absurd given the important issues facing the country today. Get over it! He's dead.

    For the past 3 nights I have tuned into AC360 at the beginning of the show and each night the lead story has been about Michael Jackson. What is CNN's obsession with this story, is it really newsworthy enough to begin each night with this non-news? Let Entertainment Tonight and TMZ report this drival, keept AC360 on news that is actually worth reporting. I immediately swtich channels and don't come back to CNN to see what else AC may have been discussing. I really thought AC360 was better than this!!!!
