Anderson Cooper

My favorite cable news reporter Anderson Cooper happens to be on the cover of Vanity Fair, which contains an excerpt of his new book.

If that's not enough for you, check out the Anderson Cooper 360ยบ blog.

Anderson Cooper is a fag.

Sincerely,
Ted

And that's why we keep calling you Pigface.

I don't know whether Anderson Cooper is gay or not, but it is a definite possibility. But that doesn't matter. He's no Keith Olbermann either way.

Matt said...

Anderson is intelligent, funny, compassionate and gorgeous. I watch Countdown with Keith now and then but I find Anderson far more compelling.

Anderson Cooper's appeal to people like you, Dara, caused some idiot at CNN to fire Aaron Brown, who was the best newscaster I've ever seen. Therefore, it matters. He is a queen, a butt-pirate, a pillow-biter, ass-clown -- a blow-tried lisping flamer.

Dara said...

Ted, saying that Anderson Cooper is gay is completely different than saying that you don't like him because CNN fired Aaron Brown. That's like me saying Dream Theater is lame instead of explaining that I don't like Dream Theater because the music is pretentious and the songs go on too long.

The first is name calling, the second is an expression of your opinion. The latter is a rational and mature conversation, whereas the former is just plain petulant and childish.

Freedom of expression is great; bigoted comments are not. Dara, you're clearly more tolerant of Ted's tirades than I am.

I was replying to Justin's comment argument that it doesn't matter if Anderson Cooper is gay. I am confronting that argument head-on, that his feminine appeal is based upon his craving to smoke beef. So he is driving up the viewers of women and those who take it up the pooper, and therefore forcing straight men (Aaron Brown) off the air. The same thing happened with MTV. The ugly hair bands are gone (Scorpions). Who likes Britney Spears? Little girls and rim-queens.

I have heard rumours of Anderson Cooper switch-hitting, but that really doesn't matter. What he is doing to national television makes him a fag.

Thank you for endulging my petulance, on behalf of disaffected men being pushed off the airways and castrated by Oprah.

Justin S. said...

Wow, lots of comments today. I reiterate my point that Anderson is no Keith Olbermann.

Dara said...

I liked Olbermann better when he was on ESPN.

DSL said...

well at least I'm clearer now about the source of Ted's frustrations. And I don't know Keith Olbermann, but thanks for reiterating Justin. ;-) No cable for me.
