Controlling the Political Message: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Tonight on 360°, they want your vote but they don't want the accountability that comes with earning your trust. Politicians dodging reporters. One even had his security team put a reporter in handcuffs. We're keeping them honest. Plus, a one-on-one exclusive interview with Yoko Ono. She talks about the day John Lennon was killed and the man convicted of the murder.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Funny chimp shot. Anderson, maybe your bunny costume would calm the chimp down.
    Good night.

    People should be very leery of the "us and them" crowd. Any group that continually tries to divide America the way the Tea Party does, should not be given as much attention as the Tea party is getting. The media is partially responsible for the tea party and the likes of Sarah Palin!

    Great show & blog.
    Love this series of interviews with Yoko Ono.

    Thankyou Anderson!
    I think this is one of the best interviews with Yoko Ono I have ever seen, she really open's up to you.
    Wish 'Imagine' after all those years wasn't a song to be played still today.Maybe one day..
    Think the Beatles song 'a day in the life' is also a monument..

    You can still hear the love in her voice when she talks about John.

    Hearing John's voice outside the bedroom must have been much more heartbreaking than anybody could have imagined.

    John Lennon will always be remembered!

    @Lori,
    "She still looks so sad."
    It must be so hard for her to live through all that. Listening to Anderson talking with her, I can remember the news when it came across the radio. I can't imagine what it's been like for her.

    October 20, 2010 at 10:52 pm |

    The other Beatles respected John and his feelings for Yoko Ono.

    October 20, 2010 at 10:52 pm |
  19. Sharon Hastings

    Excellent interview with Yoko Ono. She obviously feels better to stay close to that area. She has never left there. Still such a sad story. So interesting to hear parts of that history too.

    What a great comment from Yoko about not "leaving home" after John's death.

    It can be very difficult to forgive someone who has taken the life of you partner and father of your child...can't say i could blame her if she not forgive him.

    What a great interview!! And, many of us do respect and thank him for the peace he tried so hard to teach people.

    Great interview with Yoko Ono. I can still remember the day he died. Such a sad day in history. Yoko Ono does a great job of keeping John Lennon's memory alive. Like the story on strawberry field's. He gave so much to us through his music.

    October 20, 2010 at 10:52 pm |
  23. Samantha Rowley - Nashville, TN

    Yoko Ono seems to have a great outlook on her life with John. Very insightful memories on how she has coped with this.

  24. Heather - Spokane, WA

    I think if John Lennon were stil alive he would be the same type of person he was when he was alive. Yoko Ono is a very strong person and what she does for John's memory is great

    October 20, 2010 at 10:51 pm |

    That "Person" even got John Lennon's autograph on a copy of the "Double Fantasy" LP.

    October 20, 2010 at 10:50 pm |

    She still looks so sad.

    So well stated. I agree, these elections are like High school prom queen!

    That 'person' should Never get out of jail.
    (in my opinion)

    They are to busy trying to make Tea Party right when there is simple no right to it.

    I don't think not liking who is in the whitehouse is racism. Many people did not care for Bush who was in the whitehouse, however having signs that show african witch doctor is another story.

    What should also be brought into the light is the agenda of some (most) of the media. The questions asked are usually slanted 'gotya' questions and not serious unbiased inquiries. The photographers and reporters have become at best, close to being stalkers, intruding into the private lives of candidates and their families (including children). They feel they have a right to do and say whatever they want. wherever they want. A no rules, no holds bared attitude. They want to hold the politicians accountable. That's great, except where are the editors and owners that hold the reporters accountable??? Times have certainly changed since I ran a NYC newspaper.

    I have pictures of that memorial in Central Park. It is really well done.

    Why didn't the police search 100 yards off the trails? When did they realize that they needed to do that?

    why did the trial of the murder of Chandra Levy take 9 years to start. that is crazy

    Great interview series Anderson.

    Interesting case. It's been a long time for the Levy family. Sorry it happened and so sorry they haven't had closure yet.

    I really appreciated your post about "taking our country back"...which version.

    I yearn for civility among the political partys.
    Our country is in trouble, and we have talented people on BOth sides that could help the country if they would work Together.

    Tea Partiers appear to be little more than a mob of bitter people who rely on media sound bites as their primary source of information.

    Did this case completely derail Gary Condit's career?

    If you meet the high standards we should require for being in charge of running this country. you should have nothing to fear from any press establishment. Our granparents would loose their mind if they say how things are today.
    This election is more like High school prom queen elections than for national government

    I thought jailhouse snitches weren't to be trusted. I agree with Joe Johns. The criminal is looking for early release or something else.

  44. Heather - Spokane, WA

    I cant help but think this guy is trying to get some attention from this case

    Why are we wasting time and money on this case? This is a ridiculous use of the legal system.

    Never found the body since 9 years now and never solved to mystery a clue..... Where is the (Chandra Levy) body goes??????

    I can't believe it's taken so long for the Chandra Levy murder case to come to trial.

    Emily,

    The reason change takes so long is that people use invent categories to separate others from them. Only when everyone realizes that no matter what our sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, or whatever else, that we are all human beings and inhabitants of the same small planet, only then will we know peace.

    why did it take 9 years for her case to come up?
