A Gumbo of Clips

All eyes were on Denver this week, but by the weekend attention had turned to New Orleans and the threat of another hurricane. On Wednesday, Sean Callebs was already in NOLA and did a story on the early preparations:

Meanwhile, Morgan Neill is back in Havana and did some updates from there as Gustav approached:

Monday, Harris Whitbeck had a piece about Mexican jail inmates learning yoga:

Dara Torres, who just won 3 silver medals in Beijing, had surgery Wednesday to repair damage to her right shoulder. Dr. Sanjay Gupta was in the operating room, and filed three reports. The first one is pre-op, but if you're squeamish you may want to skip the second and third, which do include some footage of the surgery itself:

Two new promos aired late in the week -- the first focuses on the convention/political coverage:

The second seems to be a re-make of one that is running on International that focuses on CNN's foreign correspondents, but adds the Domestic anchors. The theme is "the search for truth":

Finally, Anderson Cooper did a cameo on The Daily Show this week. I just pulled the bits he was in (don't want to annoy the fun folk at Viacom!):

Where in the World...?

Denver was the place to be this week. And while I normally try to keep track of which anchors are on/off... this week they were juggling shows and anchors and I finally quit trying to keep them all straight! Issue #1 was replaced by America Votes 2008, hosted by John Roberts (in Denver) and Soledad O'Brien (in NYC), but with news breaks still handled by the Newsroom anchors.

SATURDAY: John King, Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper, Suzanne Malveaux, and Joe Johns all reported from Denver (through Thursday); Candy Crowley was in Springfield, Illinois for the Obama/Biden speech.

SUNDAY: Dana Bash and Candy Crowley were in Denver (through Thursday).

MONDAY: John Roberts was in Denver (through Thursday), Soledad O'Brien was in New York, Michael Ware was in New York (clips in Monday's post).

WEDNESDAY: Sean Callebs was in New Orleans, Nic Robertson was in Atlanta and appeared on Newsroom to talk about Darfur (clips in Monday's post); Matthew Chance (above) was in Sochi, Russia, where he reported on US aid to Georgia but also was interviewing Russian President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin (clips in Monday's post); Sanjay Gupta was in Boynton Beach, Florida.

THURSDAY: Morgan Neill reported from Havana.

FRIDAY: Anderson Cooper, Tom Foreman and Chris Lawrence were in New Orleans; Dana Bash was in Dayton, Ohio for the McCain rally and in Cambridge, Ohio as the tour bus rolled along; and Wolf Blitzer, John King, and Campbell Brown were in St. Paul, Minnesota for the upcoming Republican convention at the XCEL Energy Center.

(By the way, for those of you wondering where Ali Velshi is, he reported from Grand Isle, Louisiana this morning.)

We'll all be keeping a close on Gustav this weekend and praying for those in its path.

Anderson was such a good sport with the DS team, great outtakes too!

Thanks for the TDS clip Cyn (and for the heads up on ATA!) It was funny, but I don't think he'll be getting an Oscar for his acting any day soon, lol.
