Anderson Cooper's Emotional Report on Orlando Florida Mass Murder
On Monday evening, less than 48 hours after the deadliest mass murder on American soil since 9/11, Anderson Cooper began his prime time program with an emotional tribute to the 49 lives lost in the Orlando, Florida nightclub shooting.
Noting that his broadcast would neither display photos nor mention the name of the dead gunman, the CNN anchor listed the names and some known facts about those killed in the attack at Pulse nightclub as their names scrolled on the ticker at the bottom of the screen. At times, Cooper's voice broke with emotion."In the next two hours we want to try to keep the focus where we think it belongs, on the people whose lives were cut short," Cooper said.
