The Washington Post’s Tom Shales on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, on Anderson Cooper: “I thought he handled it about as well as you could. He said at the beginning, we don’t really know what we’re doing here, which was a good way to kind of make an excuse before anything went wrong. And a lot of things did go wrong technically.”

Variety’s Ted Johnson: “the questions presented an often provactive twist to a format already growing a bit stale.”

Tim Cuprisin of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “The Internet makes everybody a critic — social critic, political critic or entertainment critic. But it doesn’t necessarily make those questioners good interrogators.”
