Say whaaa!?!? Anderson Cooper just served up the EPITOME of how mass media are scared, vanilla, politically correct organizations. That knowledge is nothing to the informed public, but to so specifically sound this lame like a scared little boy worried about viewers thinking you are revealing something "CONTROVERSIAL" or "TABOO" or "WRONG" is comical! It was that AHA - truly defining moment to showcase on NewsBall as what NOT TO DO! As a viewer of CNN to get observations or starting points on potential stories, what he said is just annoying, disgusting, & insulting! I would think the viewers being told of CNN's blatant position of censorship & not bringing you anything & everything they possibly CAN (not just willing to) would be a huge backlash, but then again, viewers don't know about NewsBall yet so viewers / readers of the news have come to expect watered down generics.
