Anti-Anchor: “America Is Embracing Anderson…Anderson’s The Man…The Whole Country Is Talking About Anderson…”

coopernov3.jpg“Citing all the talk in the media since Mr. Cooper’s often emotional reporting and commentary during the hurricane coverage,” CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein told the New York Times: “Clearly, America is embracing Anderson Cooper.” More exaggerated quotes:

> AP: “He’s got a refreshing way of being the anti-anchor. He’s not quote-unquote reporting at you. He’s just being himself. He’s asking the questions you would like answered. He’s getting involved the way you might. You feel that he’s a regular person that you can trust talking to you. He brings such a passion to the storytelling that’s infectious.”

> NYT: “Klein also noted that Mr. Cooper has started to turn up as a character satirized on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on NBC, a development that he said was ‘a sure sign’ that people were becoming more aware of him.”

> AJC: “Anderson’s the man, obviously. The whole country is talking about Anderson, and it only made sense to find a larger showcase for him.”
