The usually-classy Anderson Cooper was very crass and crude on Thursday's show

There are few television news people who have a sense of seriousness and dignity about them, and, usually, Anderson Cooper of CNN is at the top of the list. According to a Dec. 27 article on Huffington-Post, Cooper made some comments about his rich and famous mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, on Thursday's show that were not only inappropriate but quite unsettling. Known for her sexual prowess even into her late 80s, the elderly Vanderbilt had written an erotic book which she asked her son, Anderson Cooper, to proofread. After he also quoted some sexual remarks his mom had made, which won't be repeated here, the entire year-in-review segment became vomit-inducing.

Huffington Post provides the actual clip, if you desire to watch.

Can you imagine Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, or Chet Huntley even bringing up this subject matter about anyone's mother, especially their own?

Viewers often bemoan the lack of objectivity in television news. Those on the right of the political spectrum point to MSNBC, and those on the left point to Fox News. It is equally disturbing to see those who should be a serious face on journalism stoop to such unprofessional and inappropriate dialogue such as this.
