Editor's Note: After last night's AC360°, we received many thanks for our reporting on the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti. What do you think?


I have never seen such riveting reporting, like we've seen your team accomplish in Haiti! Anderson Cooper and the entire CNN crew, THANK YOU for all you do! We've seen images and have heard the stories that only you guys can tell, in such an impactful and meaningful way...etched in our minds forever! God Bless the Haitian people!

I am a Haitian born American citizen and I've been specifically watching Anderson's broadcast. All I want to say is THANK YOU! GOD BLESS YOU! You're just not in it for the publicity, unlike others (politicians, et. al). You are one of a kind. From my heart, THANK YOU and all of your behind the scenes team mates. I Love You All!

Whether you get this or not, THANK YOU for your compassionate reporting and for actually helping these beautiful people. You and your fellow reporters including Dr. Gupta have made me just so proud of all of you for your kindness and compassionate care. God Bless all of you, and keep you safe and well.

Anderson Cooper and Dr. Gupta you are doing an excellent job reporting on Haiti. In spite of all the negative criticism that is out there, you are risking your own lives to report the devastation that’s going on. I applaud you and pray for your safety. God Bless You and Thank You.

I have never commented on any news program before, but I am so impressed by the coverage that CNN and particularly Anderson Cooper's coverage of the earthquake in Haiti. The stories are so real and moving that I can't stop watching. I truly hope this program is recognized in some way for the excellent reporting it has done.

Watching Anderson and Sanjay vent their frustrations at the slowness and logistical hang-ups with the Haiti repose was so honest and refreshing. I listened so intently as they both seemed like they wanted to scream out in frustration and as they called out the lack of logic and common sense in the response and behavior of some. Nice grab on the little guy hit with the brick Anderson and Sanjay-you are my hero with your willingness to operate as needed! Really enjoyed your coverage! Thanks for the heartfelt sentiments and feelings! Keep it human and real!

Anderson Cooper, you're my hero. What you are doing in Haiti is beyond amazing. Stay safe, and God Bless.

Anderson, when I saw you put down your camera and pick up that boy, you became a hero in my eyes. And Sanjay, watching you care for the injured after the Belgium drs had left was awesome. Another hero. I know you were doing the right thing but in our world today, oftentimes, doing the right thing is heroic. Good job both of you

I appreciate that Anderson Cooper and Sanjay Gupta are still in Haiti, even after all other evening news reporters have come and gone. I think Anderson's best work is on the field, and I resonate completely with his frustrations and 'rants' on last night's show. Great work! Please keep the information about Haiti coming.

I want to see more Anderson Haiti coverage and a lot less boring repeat coverage of the senate race!

    Bravo to you Anderson, Sanjay and everyone at CNN. I wish I had become a journalist instead of a lawyer. I lived for 4 months in Haiti and My kreyol is pretty decent. How can I best help? I want to come to Haiti desperately as i feel my knowledge of the country and the language may be of assistance. Any advice? I have registered with several agencies but at this point I am considering putting together my own self-sufficient group. I am a family court lawyer. I can help with adoptions of Haitian orphans in South Carolina.

    I was disappointed yesterday with the little time devoted to news from Haiti.

    At no time did I want to take the importance of American political moment, but after the hard work of AC, Dr Gupta, Ivan, Soledad and all team, they deserved more time for your reports.

    Anderson, Thank you for your heroic efforts in Haiti. I can say that I haven't had many hero's in my life but after seeing you put down the camera to help the boy struck by the piece of concrete, you become a hero in my eyes. The good that you are doing for the people of Haiti is remarkable and it makes me feel good knowing there are people like you in the world who will help other people while putting their lives on the line. The work you and Dr. Gupta have done thus far is truly remarkable and i can't thank you enough. It's people like you that make the world a better place and I hope you and the entire CNN crew stay safe.

    Anderson Cooper and the whole CNN team of reporters are doing such an incredible job of keeping us all informed. Thank you all for the outstanding job you are doing. CNN seems to be the only network that has been on top of this horrible disaster and asking the right questions. I have been following the story of the students and professors still missing at the Hotel Montana. I'm praying for a good outcome. Keep us informed on this situation. Thank you again for all that you are doing and be safe.

    Thank God for Anderson and all the other CNN personnel currently reporting from Haiti..please keep reporting from there..while current events here are necessary...we want to continue to see what is happening in Haiti on a daily basis. Don't let history repeat itself by having the cameras leave and once again forsake these tragic people. Thank you again for being our "eyes and ears"!
