Congratulations! Anderson!

Congratulations to Anderson for winning a News & Documentary Emmy for his "Bullying" special on CNN. Strange that nobody has said anything about this. I hadn't heard anything until I saw this article from "Reuters."

CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360° Bullying: It Stops Here Wins Emmy Award
The town hall was filmed at Rutgers

CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360° Bullying: It Stops Here received an Emmy Award for Outstanding News Discussion and Analysis this week.

The town hall was taped at the Livingston Student Center at Rutgers University and premiered on CNN Sunday, October 9, 2011.

The award was presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences during the 33rd Annual News & Documentary Emmy Awards ceremony at the Time Warner Center in New York City.

The Emmy was one of two awards for CNN and CNNi during the ceremony, which recognized 42 categories, including Breaking News, Investigative Reporting, Outstanding Interview and Best Documentary, among others.

Chuck Hadad, a producer for the special, thanked the university for assisting Cooper and CNN with such a massive undertaking. “We can’t thank you enough – this is your Emmy, too,” he wrote in an email to Rutgers staff.

AC360° chose to host a forum at Rutgers following the suicide of student Tyler Clementi in September 2010 and the increased national attention on bullying-related teen suicides that followed.

According to Hadad, Cooper was so moved by the bullying stories he covered over the year following Clementi’s death that he envisioned the special as a call to action.

“This issue has become paramount to Anderson,” said Hadad during the October 2011 town hall. “Kids are suffering, kids are dying, and it doesn’t have to be this way. Anderson covers wars, people dying of malnutrition. But these kids are dying because they feel like they have no place to turn. He thinks that’s unacceptable.’’

More than 50 Rutgers students, many of whom are engaged in activities to combat bullying, attended the taping of the special. Students from Rutgers professor Steve Miller’s journalism courses also assisted with pre-production.

Maurice Elias, a Rutgers psychology professor who researches effective ways for schools to curb bullying, appeared as a guest on the show along with Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabees, and Lee Hirsch, director of the documentary Bully.

Celebrities including “Dr. Phil” McGraw, talk show host Kelly Ripa, and Jane Lynch of Glee joined Cooper via satellite for the special, which was a Time, Inc., Facebook and Cartoon Network collaboration.

“The Tyler Clementi tragedy deeply touched the Rutgers community,” says Kim Manning, vice president for University Relations. “The university is gratified that CNN recognized Rutgers as a civil, inclusive and respectful campus community where a national campaign to combat bullying would be welcomed.”
