Whatever credibility Anderson Cooper had left as a serious anchor man went flying out the window last night when he dissolved into giggling hysterics over a poop joke.

This is as good a time as any to mention that Cooper, who uses the CNN platform to push the gay agenda, has never publicly come out of the closet. Yet he giggles like a little girl over a doo doo joke? Can anyone else see the irony in that?

Cooper usually stutters as he rushes through the serious news so he can get to his favorite segment: the Ridiculist. The subject of last night's Ridiculist -- a humorous look at today's current events -- was the French actor Gerard Depardieu, who urinated on the cabin floor of a commercial airliner before takeoff earlier this week.

Control lost control of his normally steely exterior when he read the line about how the cleaning crew “should thank their lucky stars this wasn’t De-part-two.”

Cooper laughed uncontrollably as he struggled to regain his composure. Through giggles, he apologized to his viewing audience, saying “Sorry. This has actually never happened to me.”

That part is easy to understand: it isn't every day that an anchor loses it over doo doo jokes on the set of a national news program.

Amid reports of "Anderson Cooper 360" declining ratings, we have to wonder if he has ruined the credibility of what once was a respectable news organization.

    I gues he knows a lot about poop jokes. After all, most of his elasticity has to be gone by now.

  • mrsloveleigh

    It's unorthodox but I don't think he will lose credibility for laughing at a joke. It's not like he laughed at a serious story

  • Mamacita

    He still fine tho :coffee:

    That giggling was hilarious though. :lol:

    What does him being gay have to do with anything though? :shrug:

  • Ms. Everything

    Sandra why does it matter that he hasn't come out the closet? As long as he isn't sleeping with women on the side, it's his business and his choice. I didn't think his gayness was a secret... some things you don't even have to say :shrugs:

    Far as him laughing, maybe he's stressed out about something and just couldn't stop. Laughter is supposedly one of the best medicines. It's happened to me more times than I can count so... at least he has a sense of humor and can laugh unlike alot of other people.

    him laughing is funnier than the jokes lol

  • KrayZKat

    I like AC. :yes:

  • NaijaGal

    Ah the silver fox. People like/love him because he's not stuck on himself. He watches the same ridiculous shows we do and get this...sometimes people actually laugh hysterically at ish they find funny. Perish the thought he should show normal human characteristics on national tv :coffee:

  • mia2bmore

    I actually like Anderson with his cute self and this will not make me stop watching his show. I like his keeping them honest segments.

    "a doo doo joke" <<<<< :hahaha: :rofl: :lol:
    Ok I'm done :coffee:

  • speakinmymind

    i adore Anderson Cooper, and one of the reasons why is that he doesn't push any specific agenda. He reports the facts of each news story. I don't care if he's gay, straight or bi. i've lost it before and giggled hysterically over something others didn't find in the least funny. it happens to all of us from time and as Ms. Everything stated, laughter is the best medicine.

  • http://mistariesworld.blogspot.com mistarie

    This isn't the first time, nor will it be the last time that an anchor loses it on t.v. I'm sure we all have laughed hysterically at something no one else thought was funny. I don't see the big deal. :shrug:

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    no big deal :coffee:

  • Daisy

    I LOVE AC360 :cheer: Anderson is a cutie pie and I love his reporting style. I read his book too #teamAnderson I was so glad they moved his show to 8

    half the folks who are pressed for Anderson to come out will be the main ones sayin who cares/why must folks come out/the gays always trying to push their lifestyle in ppls faces :rolleyes:

  • http://yallaintchit.com/ Man, I just don’t care™

    @SANDRA ROSE

    I actually agree with everything you said. I can't even watch CNN when he is on there with all his antics. This isn't the first time. Wasn't that him and that dude "Donna Brazille" crackin jokes bout being each other's "boos" or some chit?

    CNN is really becoming more and more unprofessional.

    I concur....

  • RoderickXYZ

    On one hand Sandra says that AC is pushing the ghay agenda but OTOH he's a closet case.

    I beleive Sandra just says sh!t to get stuff started even though it doesn't make sense.

  • prima_donna2163

    Why should he have to come out the closet and say he's gay? Heteros don't usually come out the closet and say their straight? :shrugs:

    I've seen worse...e.g. the entire Fox News MO....

    I agree!! I have had that happen to me (at a most inopportune moment!!) and no matter how hard you try, you just cannot stop the giggles. It makes him very endearing to me, but I have always liked that silver fox anyway.

  • Daisy

    He didn't need this clip for publicity he is Anderson Cooper we know him already his CNN is already popular and I will be watching his talk show :popcorn:

  • KDub

    Andy Cooper is STILL my gay friend in my head :love: That I meet for tea with at the Plaza Hotel (NY) and talk about how fabu his momma ill (Gloria Vanderbilt)...

    Back up owf Andy :coffee:

    :hahaha: I'm over here ctfu @ his giggling, laughter is good for the soul people. He's a human being what do you expect, I don't want to watch the news if the anchors all act like robots reading the teleprompter all day so this will not make me stop watching CNN.

  • SamYell JacksEm

    One time I had a latin supervisor. He came in and called a meeting to tell us he changed his name completely and to address him by the new name. I don't know why, but I busted out in a fit of laughter that could only be categorized as robust. He was deported a month later... :coffee:

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Birdshu Bird

    Well dang Miss Sandra. That post went totally left from what I expected. I thought he was adorable with his cute little boy laugh. Further I have not noticed an abnormal focus on the gay agenda by Anderson. Don't like him much huh?

  • renegadesince1985

    :lol: I saw it and thought it was cute and funny. I didn't know Anderson was in the closet. I thought everyone knew he was gay. He's always photoed out with his boo :shrugs:

    I guess he needs to wear a rainbow color tie to work or maybe a sign that says "I like boys". :coffee:

    Damn niccas/wiccas can't laugh anymore.....why so serious, all the time???

    I need to see the roles and responsibilities of a Anchorman/Journalist, are they not suppose to laugh at a JOKE?

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    WTF does his sexuality have to do with him laughing at a video and how, exactly, does that affect his journalistic integrity/credibility?

    I've seen videos of journalist break up during a story about death. Does your ability to laugh and be caught off guard have any bearing on your sexuality?

    Clearly Sandra, a gay woman, is one of the gays that thinks HER gay is different than gay men. Gay men are no different than gay women - don't be fooled by the fact that men train you up to believe that you're on a different scale because we like to watch two women.

    His credibility is no more lost than that of the fact that Sandra "keeps it real" (if the money is right) that's why she says NOTHING but positive $hit about Monica - and if you look at her list of sponsors, it clearly says "Monica Arnold"... SMH

    ok he laughed at a joke on air what is the big deal? :shrug: Hell Cnn, faux news, ABC news, CBS news, msnbc and what ever other news channel out there has lost its creditability so cnn isn't the only one. News channels now have alot of anchors that aren't worthy, ok anderson laughed at a stupid joke hell. the media now is worse than these reality shows really. Cnn might have lost its cred but hell it was the only one that reported what went down in Mississippi when them yt kids lynched that black man. #IJS

    Right, if that's the case a lot of them should be fired because their humor is so dry and they often laugh @ ish I don't find very funny, but I always laugh @ them laughing or when they mess up reading the teleprompter.

    No doubt. She is by far the most homophobic gay person I have ever seen in my life. She HATES cross dressers and I've seen her complain about women who embrace the stud style yet the other day she was lusting on LaLa's cuzzin. The girl stay confusing me.

    When we were little all you had to do to my cousin Malika to get her to damn near piss herself was whisper in her ear the word "dookie"

  • pointhimout

    that's adorable. I'm thinking with him saying pee and pissing, it's not meant to be taken that seriously. When you track record and work speaks for itself, you have nothing else to prove.

    CNN knows Anderson has a strong following and more people will find his giggly laughter a refreshing change from the stoic presence we're used to seeing from him. I got all the puns (depends, de-par-2, as in doing the number 2). That's good stuff.

    I think Sandra secretly likes dyck especially Hov's because she's always talking about erectile dysfunction and whenever she does she always shows the pic of him with a woody and the comments she makes on the male versions of Morning Wood have me going :thinking:

  • Tommykimon

    Wow his laughing made me laugh too, Gosh I always thought he was handsome he has beautiful eyes.

  • Terri B

    Why do people always expect gays to come out the closet for our sakes, like an official announcement is needed. Do straights make a public annoucement that we're straight?
