    Wow, incredible! I'm kind of in awe of how dedicated Neil seems to be to his job. That camera looks like it weighs at least 20lbs, and having to run and capture things in a chaotic environment - that's awesome of him!

    Anderson, Your reporting about Syria is much appreciated. Indeed you are offering a voice to the voiceless, and exposing a regime that often committed atrocities. I believe it is time for regime change in Syria.
    keep up the good work.
    May Allah bless you.

    It's nice to see some of the people behind the scenes when AC is in the field. Please highlight more of these people. We (the viewers) tend to think of the show as Anderson Cooper, but all these other people make "AC360" !

    Nothing in a professional world is more important than a reliable teammate. Thanks Neil for being committed to make AC360 a successful show.

    You have an artful eye for catching the right moment at the right time. Anderson Cooper can deliver the news in a way that we all feel he cares so deeply but without you...it is like peanut butter without jam. Just not complete. Something not right. Congrats to you both for finding each other.

    What a great piece. A really interesting guy. We get so caught up in the story sometimes we forget the work you all put into it. Thank you.

    Instead of flipping through his passport, why not show photos from the locations? If you guys are story tellers, tell stories.
