    The economy and the stock market has me worried but when I'm in need of a smile and a laugh, I just have to replay the video of you giggling on the Ridiculist. Thanks for brightening my day!

    Anderson Cooper needs to become President of the United States – he has the publicity and he would be light years ahead of any politician. Please we need someone who is actually intelligent, someone who's brain might still be attached at a few points. I am really tired of having the same old people running with different names. There is never anyone good to choose from. I am calling for a demand to make Anderson Cooper President of the United States.

    And of course, the harder you try to NOT giggle the worse it gets! Kind of like a Law of Physics. An Inverse Law.

    If you MUST NOT break up, you WILL, therefore, break up.

    Like, like, like, like, like, like, like, like,...................

    Hi Anderson
    I really like to watch CNN every day and I really like you and your show. But in the last a few days I really don't know what happened...CNN used to show everything going on in the middle east, and there is a big problem between Israel and Egypt, none of any news channels showed anything about it and i really don't know why. Is that because Israel started the problem and you guys don't want them to look bad or what. I guess your job is to show everyone what is going no matter what.
    Thank you

    Anderson, if Gerard Depardieu does indeed have a prostate issue, then your 'commentary' was way
    out of line. You are in a position to educate the public, not ridicule the 'underdog.'

    On behalf of the people of Canada, I'm sorry some of us are just too anal, lol!

    This is the 1st time I am commenting here. So therefore I have a few comments.
    – The giggling made Anderson Cooper look silly and unprofessional. I was amazed that instead of apologizing the next day, showed most of it again.
    – Why is it OK to show graphic pictures of dead Syrian children and people being beaten up, but not OK to show kids being mutilated and peaceful protesters being beaten up daily by Israelis. You can find a lot of videos on Youtube. Why was it too graphic to show the hundreds of pictures of kids killed during Bush's "Shock & Awe" and all the US bombings in Afghanistan ? There seems to be a double standard here and that is why I rarely watch CNN.
