Anderson Cooper Doesn’t Need No Stinkin’ Web Site

Choire Sicha talks with CNN’s Anderson Cooper in an LA Times Q&A.

Why don’t you quit your job and start a website?

I’m not that computer-savvy. And, uh, I dunno! I like the immediacy of television. I like going to a frontline, I like going to a story. I like the immediacy and impact of it. There’s a real global impact with CNN.

You do have mass distribution, which is nice. Fair enough.

It’s not really about mass distribution. It’s more about just telling stories that affect people’s lives…There’s a lot of opportunities at CNN that if I had a little website somewhere I don’t think I could take part in.
