Does anyone else think Anderson Cooper is a douche?

This thread is for discussing the various douchelike aspects of Anderson Cooper. Please use one of the other threads if you want to engage in a boyfriend flame war.

Like many people, I have been saddened by Anderson's descent from serious journalist to a giggling, spray-tan demonstrating, child beauty pageant obsessed, boyfriend hiding, Kathy Griffin and Kelly Ripa- behagged douche.

What do you think caused Anderson to pursue this douche lifestyle? He is such a joke nowadays. Is this some kind of revenge against his mother and her good taste and breeding?

He was never a 'serious journalist'. Not in the eyes of his peer group

His head has been completely turned by fame, much like Barbara Walters's head was thirty-five years ago.

He had a completely pointless interview with Michael "Maybe 2 Brain Cells" Phelps on 60 Minutes last night. He gets ALL the hard hitting stuff.

by Anonymousreply 405/07/2012

If I were Anderson Cooper, and I wanted people to take me more seriously again, I would do three things:

1) Cancel the talk show. It's not working, and he comes across as a lightweight because of it. Admit it was a mistake, and move on: if he wants to relax and giggle on TV, then occasionally guest-host LIVE WITH KELLY like he used to do.

2) Cut "The RidicuList" from "360 with Anderson Cooper." The repeated gigglefits look like they're staged now, and, besides, the kind of shrill "sock it to the conservative enemy by calling them out!" journalism that he gives into in those segments went out of style with Keith Olbermann.

3) Come out. Everyone knows he's gay, and by staying publicly in the closet (and that's what he's doing, even if he's out to his friends and family) is more distracting than if he were out and proud. He says by not discussing his sex life he's retaining his dignity and his privacy, but at this point the reverse is true. he will not get fired nor will his ratings go down. he should come out and the press will stop playing peekaboo with him and he'll get out of the gossip[ columns.

Anderson is a fame/celeb whore. All he cares about is being famous and hanging out with celebrities. He doesn't care if the daytime show makes him look like a lightweight in the news business. The daytime show gets him the attention he so desperately craves. I don't know how many times I've seen on TVNewser articles about the daytime show. He gets more press for it than he does 360.

The thing I don't understand is, if he had pursued the path of being a respected journalist, he would still have access to the celebrity friends and glamorous parties. Mike Wallace, Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather all led active social lives. And their friends were interesting people like business and political leaders as well as celebrities.

And as for money, he was born with it, so it can't be that.

When he bottoms his ass is surprisingly rough. I expected it to be smooth as drooly silk, but it's rather gashy and rough, like used sandpaper. I don't know if he took it too many times and toyed around too much without proper lube when he was young, or if the near-albino, scaleless-fish look is just an external thing. Anyway, it was distracting. His ass is meaty, just now starting to droop and pucker on the edges with age.

He seemed to love it, although with his insisting on being on his stomach with his face down in all those down pillows I didn't really get that much of a sense of it except by how his pale body kept flushing and charging pink and red in patterns like a cuttlefish as I changed tempo and depth.

He's not a serious journalist in the eyes of the general public. Despite being the highest paid talking head on CNN he has less than 200,000 viewers. Some of the worst ratings in the business. His "talk show" is a laughingstock.

In addition to being a douche, I don't think he's too smart. Anyone known as a major closet case shouldn't criticize the President for his stance on gay marriage. That was totally stupid and bound to anger people who are sick of Cooper's pathetic habit of pushing his b/f to the back of the bus.

From Gerald Clarke's bio of Capote:

Truman and Cooper [Wyatt, Gloria's fourth husband] later became good friends... Truman's friendship with Gloria, on the other hand, which had been tenuous from adolescence, progressively deteriorated. "She was a nasty little girl," he said. "She lied about her mother during her custody trial, and she was terrible to her until shortly before she died. She had a father complex. Her first husband, Pat DiCicco, was a rough-and-ready type who used to really beat her. She finally got rid of him and married Leopold Stokowski, who was more like a grandfather, or a great-grandfather, than a father. I introduced her to Sidney Lumet, and she only married him because she thought he would make her a movie star. But the only part she ever got was as a nurse in some television thing. When she found out he wasn't going to make her a star, she dumped him quick.

"Why she married Wyatt is a mystery. He certainly wasn't like anybody's father, although he did tell me that when they had sex together, she would scream, over and over, 'Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!' He grew to hate her, and he was terrified that she would leave him and take their two boys, to whom he was devoted. He was always calling me, asking me what he should do. I think that that anxiety contributed to his death. In fact, I had lunch with him just before he died [in 1978]. He seemed fine, but he kept talking about those boys. 'If only I can live another ten years,' he said, 'everything will be all right. But Gloria just isn't responsible enough to raise them.'"

It's weird his head has been so turned by fame 9given that he grew up a Vanderbilt with a famous mother), but if you think of the Barbara Walters model you can see why it happened.

Barbara Walters' father was a nightclub promoter who was obsessed with celebrity, and she felt the best way to get attention from him 9and thus have her sense of self-worth validated) was to become famous.

Similarly, Anderson's mother desperately wanted to be a movie star and stay in the headlines, and as a child he must have felt to keep her attention he would have to become famous himself.

I used to respect him quite a lot before he started selling out to do his talk show and his New Year's specials and hanging out with the likes of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos on Diane von Furstenberg's yacht. What the hell can he really have to say to Kelly Ripa other than discussing being famous? He graduated from Yale; she dropped out of Camden County College.

He does an okay job when reporting the immediate effects of a hurricane or earthquake but he'll never be considered a serious journalist since there aren't enough hurricanes and earthquakes to continually demonstrate the only thing he does with a modicum of success.

by Anonymousreply 13410/07/2012

He just chose to be a celebrity, make a lot of money, whatever. It's American infotainment. What, he should pass?

I really enjoyed that good reading he gave Ms Star Jones the other day. He Im sure he would have continued if it wasn't live. Its nice to know that he is human and not a robot, and that he does not take kindly to people talking shit about him. Now if he could just put some Dataloungers in their place about all the shit that we say about him here!

Star Jones could easily have gotten the idea from DL that Cooper finally came out of his closet for ratings. That notion was posted here many times over in July. It's obvious that many people here thought that was the reason he came out -- the sinking ratings for 360 and the need to up the viewers for his daytime show.

Anderson just certified his douche credentials.

[quote]On Watch What Happens Live, Cohen asked Cooper whether certain public figures should come out. Cooper said this, "I mean look, it’s a personal decision that everyone has to make for their own reasons ... I’m pretty understanding of where people are at, and people are at different places in their lives. But there’s a bunch of people whom I’m surprised have not been more forward, and you know given their position and the extent to which they’re forward about other aspects about their lives."

I thought this thread was deleted last year. It's interesting to see it again at a time when he has now managed to become the gay douche of the season.

After spending decades in the closet and then coming out via a letter while fleeing the country, his comments to Cohen have put him in the Permanent Douche Pool.

I was watching his "talk" show yesterday when AC interviewed a woman who eats face mask. AC had a "therapist" on (at the link) who is a sex therapist. When the mask eater said she had a pain in her stomach, Dr. Argosy piped in with a diagnosis of anxiety. WTF? The woman is ingesting clay and the pain she is experiencing is caused by anxiety. The diagnoses went downhill from there. Who vets these experts anyway?

His last "live" shows were mid-May; they were "Favorite Moments" shows. There was no mention of it being his last week of first-run shows.

Edit: now that you mention it, it seems he did refer to it as a fan-appreciation week, and he did thank the fans in a very low key manner.

New years Eve with Kathy Griffin is no longer funny at all. She never shuts her damn mouth and he just stands there and giggle at her. It is getting old. I used to like it, but he has no personality at all. He is a dud. Sorry Anderson, but that is how I feel.

Anderson Cooper is super cool because he's a militant atheist. The most intelligent people in this world are atheists. I love the way Anderson Cooper successfully debunks all of those bogus psychics and the paranormal whenever some story on the subject crosses the wire. It pisses me off that so many dumb American's are believing in the afterlife, psychics and the paranormal because of all of those retarded "ghost hunting" crap shows that are on cable. We need more intelligent voices like Anderson Cooper and the rest of the vast and growing skeptical community to voice the truth regarding the paranormal and the afterlife as being nonexistent. How about CNN doing a show that will counter the views on all of those inane "ghost hunting" shows, and expose all of those "psychic detectives" as the mega frauds that they are! How can police agencies be so foolish to use these tricksters?

I like that Anderson is an atheist (that shows intelligence) but obviously he has a douchey side to him since he's friends with so many annoying celebs.

He also has a bit of an elitist side to him. I have a good-looking gay friend who co-owns a company that is quite popular among celebs. My friend has appeared at numerous red carpet and private celeb events. He's also appeared on tv numerous times. Anyway, he is friends in real life and on facebook with a gay tv producer. Apparently Anderson has a private/secret facebook account and is friends with this tv producer as well. 1 day Anderson sent out a friend request to my friend and my friend accepted even though they had never interacted before. The next day, my friend noticed that Anderson had unfriended him. Clearly all Anderson was doing was checking out who my friend was and probably wondered if he was "important" enough to stay facebook friends with. That's high school behavior right there. No, my friend wasn't upset or annoyed, he just found it strange and amusing. Who does that?

by Anonymousreply 18105/29/2015

Anderson mentioned god a lot in his coming out statement. I didn't understand that because he doesn't seem like someone who is at all religious or believes in any higher power. I know he meditates or something, but I don't know why he was thanking god in his statement. He's also said that his parents taught him to hate anything and everything that smacked of elitism. I guess everyone slips into high school behavior every now and then though.

I'm not sure he's actually religious, but it seems kind of odd of him to make mention of God so much in his coming out statement. Maybe there was some kind of calculation going on there because he really doesn't seem the slightest bit religious.

That's right R184. Everyone at DL admired Cooper for staying in the closet. We do that with all the closet cases. That's why we all adore Hugh Jackman, Kevin Spacey, and all the other closet cases and we shower praise upon them. So glad you noticed.
