What are you still doing here? Read David Blum‘s piece in this week’s New York magazine.

“Much as the news chiefs might not want to admit it, Anderson Cooper is the best hope for the future,” Blum writes in “Anchor Roulette: Can you pick the Next Big News Star?”

Blum supports Cooper (“combining the passion of Edward R. Murrow and the pacing of MTV into a jazzy, if still low-rated, package”) while taking a shot, too: “At last count, he’s down to only three or four fawning media profiles a week.”
