Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 11/11/09

We have breaking news on the battle over the war in Afghanistan. A former U.S. general who is now the U.S. Ambassador in Kabul is warning Pres. Obama not to commit more troops to war zone. Plus, the raw politics of Sarah Palin. She taped her appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show today. We'll have details and talk with the authors of a book about Palin that provides new insight on the former Vice Presidential candidate and Alaska governor.

    Carrie Prejean is a self-promoter. Period.

    So was there a deal about what could be talked about, and did Larry King try to ask anyway?

    Logan Burnett is obviously traumatized.

    Carrie Prejean is just inexperienced with dealing with the media.

    Good night Isable, Starr, Good night everyone.

    Carrie P. was telling Larry that he was being "inappropriate"!
    speaking from experience! 😛

    Oh she was walking off because a gay man called in? Because a caller called in.

    I thought Prejean was a conservative religious person? What is with the sex tape?

    No one remembers who actually won the contest. Carrie will be famous forever.

    Get Carrie on your show Anderson and show her who's being inappropriate!

    She deserved it, but that was an ambush.

    November 11, 2009 at 10:56 pm |
  25. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    If Carrie made the tape at age 17, it's child pornography.

    This was too funny with Carrie!

  29. lisal -canada

    Larry King's session with Ms. Prejean was completely appropriate. I thought her response was interesting, but not very effective.

    Larry will be around much longer than most of the people he interviews and reports on. LK rocks!!

    That stunning image! Nature furious!

    Anderson,

    I am appauled to how that person was portraying himself as a highly decorated US Marine. He should be ashamed of himself, and if you want my opinion, this person is a sad excuse for a human being and should be ashamed of himself. Too many people have died for our country and for the freedoms of this country and for the sake of them and in their honor, I hope they prosecute him. It takes a person of honor, courage and commitment to stand up and join the military to defend the freedoms of this country. He is a joke and in my opinion is nothing but a wantabee, because the military probably doesn't want him.

    @ Mike, formerly from Syracuse,
    Thanks for that information.
    I would have thought that you would have had to have another I.D.# also, aside from a credit card #.

    I wonder if there will be more security now....I think that I heard that there has been more than 1000 frauds Found!

    You cannot predict the future, that woman should not have signed that confidentiality agreement. However, they are always broken sooner or later anyways.

  34. Caroline, Los Angeles

    I've been hearing so much about Carrie and her tape, but I haven't paid much attention. It seems like all celebrities have them, or am I exaggerating? 😉

  35. Shaun

    Whats the deal with Carrie?
    She looks different lately.
    Did she do something with her face or something?
    She looks tired or something.

    November 11, 2009 at 10:53 pm |
  36. Mike, formerly from Syracuse

    It's sad her son is dying, but after supporting her for 22 years, why is this the church's problem?

    When Sarah Palin left the Governor's post so suddenly, she came across as a "quitter". I'm not sure the American people would want to take a chance on her again.

  38. Gloria, Brooklyn, NY

    What is Palin motive, really?

    Palins Future – a book- who cares. a good way to make a few bucks.

    Mitch, buying and selling medals and such is not a problem. Putting those medals on a uniform, then wearing that uniform, pretending to have served, thats a real problem.
