Sneak Preview of Anderson Cooper Reporting from Turkey

Anderson did a :60 second promo with John Roberts (subbing for Paula Zahn tonight) earlier this evening....and a change of plans for coverage this week:

CNN’s Anderson Cooper will anchor Anderson Cooper 360° live from Istanbul tonight and Tuesday, Nov. 28, to coincide with Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Turkey this week. For Wednesday, Nov. 29, and Thursday, Nov. 30, the program moves to Amman, Jordan, where it will continue to focus on the pope but also on President George W. Bush’s trip to Jordan to discuss the war in Iraq.

Pope Benedict XVI’s trip to Turkey from Tuesday, Nov. 28, through Friday, Dec. 1, marks the pope’s first trip to a predominantly Muslim nation following remarks he made about radical Islam. His comments ignited a backlash among some Muslims. His trip has been characterized as a clash of cultures: Christianity and Islam.

For the Anderson Cooper 360° special coverage, Cooper interviews Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, who plans to meet privately with the pope on Wednesday, Nov. 29, in Istanbul. Rome bureau chief and correspondent Alessio Vinci will provide live reports and updates as he travels with the pope throughout his trip.

In other reports, senior international correspondent Nic Robertson examines how radical Islam has gained a foothold in Europe and created a massive terrorism threat; faith and values correspondent Delia Gallagher and correspondent Randi Kaye examine the history of Christian-Muslim relations; and Jerusalem correspondent Ben Wedeman examines the events surrounding the Palestinian grandmother who blew herself up last week near Israeli soldiers operating inside Gaza.

Thanks to liberation337 for the screencap.

Looks like someone got a hair cut!

I can't wait to watch the show tonight. It should be interesting.

Anderson always gets a haircut before a big trip...must be part of his prep

So he's going to Jordan? Is it "let's see how close we can get to Iraq without actually being in Iraq?" ;-)

That was a good show. While I find Delia somewhat annoying for some reason I can't quite pinpoint, I enjoyed her reports with Reza.

I find Delia to be kind of creepy.

Delia has a snooty air about her.

Wow, the looks that Delia throws at Anderson...She is so uptight! Hear I am thinking that looking at Anderson's eyes is relaxing enough! Well, apparently not to Delia.


Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
