That's what I thought. I mean, AC360 is a bit different because he's actually IN Somalia this week, so it's being highlighted, but still.

Rail at the media, Bono. Not the viewers.

Bono Performs a Very Special White House U2 Show

Guess they didn't get around to addressing this issue in their meeting...

I totally don't understand that blurb. Why the BP oil reference? Are they implying that Bono showed up, did a dance and left?

Why would you think he wasn't there to actually discuss anything?

It's from last year. I'm not sure what the point is.

He should be pointing that finger at the media, not the viewers. I'd bet any money Cooper's own show didn't lead with Somalia.
The lead story was about Somalia. Cooper was criticizing how the news is so big that is should be the main headline in every newspaper (kinda how Bono was). He did go on to briefly discuss the London riots about half way in, then he went back to Somalia and finally the Bono/K'naan interview.

Glad to hear Anderson was the exception.

That sentiment by Anderson sounds like it could have originated from Bono at an earlier point. Probably over a late night drink.

Come to think of it, so does the title of his TV show.

Late night drink? They're in different continents!

Yeah, I'm glad AC didn't sue U2 for using the same title as his show... I jest, y'all

Anyone know if Bono has been on AC on any other past occasions?

A late night drink in the past.

I think they are just New York buddies. I am guessing Bono socializes with him.

Bono is a class act

Might be other times but I know of The Democratic National Convention in 2004.





and CNN on 360.

Some good questions from Anderson Cooper. The difficulties with getting the help where it's needed is an issue that critics often demand an answer to but it's hard to find a 100% working solution on, Bono talking about the importance of safe passage for aid. It's sad that K'Naan has to give an response about the westerners trust issues when there's an emergency.
