Anderson Wags Yalie Finger at Paris

6/28/2007 4:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comAnderson Cooper -- once famously dubbed the "Paris Hilton" of cable news -- gave the real Paris Hilton the third degree last night, bagging on her for doing, well, nothing.

The silver-haired Yale graduate and Vanderbilt family scion laid into the GED-educated Paris on his show last night, which he grudgingly devoted to Hilton, who had just been interviewed on his good friend Larry King's show. "I don't understand her," said Coop, "I don't understand the appeal ... she's 26 years old. Why hasn't she been substantial until now?"

What was big, mean Mr. Cooper doing when he was 26? Oh, that's right -- reporting from war torn and disease-ridden countries like Vietnam, Somalia, and Rwanda.

Yeah, whatever -- how many Carl's Jr. spots does Dandy Andy have under his racquet-patterned grosgrain belt?

He's just another one of those opinionated journalist assholes on so-called "news" shows.

When is Cooper going to bring back "The Mole" on ABC? That show was cool. And oh ya, Paris is a waste of space. Good for him.

Did Anderson promote any designer while covering Katrina....NO!!!
BTW....Kathy Griffin is a comedian and she was telling a joke.

Why is TMZ defending Paris Hilton nowadays? Hilton's probably own TMZ!!! Anderson was right in his comments about Hilton. All Hilton has accomplished is to make a porn video and act stupid. Anyone who has no morals can do that. No class.

I was so mad last night, that I wrote Mr. Cooper an e-mail.

Mr. Cooper:
I'm a very big fan but tonight you show me a very unpleasant side of you. You used your show to discredit everything that Paris Hilton said. As a woman I feel offended by your arrogance and lack of compassion. Rich people DO NOT HAVE TO APOLOGIZE for being rich. You should know, you are one of them.. Your obvious hate towards Paris Hilton was repulsive. We know you are a great journalist, well educated man, but don't trash people who are not.

Paris is a high school drop out, she did not have good parents who encourage her to do better. You know that but you choose to make a mockery out of her. Shame on you Cooper. Next time, learn how to be fair. Like her judge who sent her back to jail, you thought you had to punish Miss Hilton so people will think you are superior to her. That's ego and arrogance, not good journalism. I never liked Paris Hilton before, but tonight, she was bigger than you.

TMZ is star struck w/ Paris. I think TMZ is becoming like that old boring site Perez Hilton.

Did you know that Anderson's mother Gloria saw his brother, her other son, commit suicide by jumping off a balcony?

I think if Anderson was STRAIGHT, he'd probably have more reverence for Paris....

Queens are aLL THE SAME!
A RICH BITCH RECOGNIZES OTHER RICH BITCHES !!!

Anderson Cooper is jealous of her huge feet and eagle beak. He is also jealous because he has not made a sleazy sex tape. He has not made public that he has a number of sexually transmitted diseases. He has done none of these fine things. Go away Anderson and come back when you are a sleazy whore like Paris.

Seriously- is anyone, especially TMZ comparing Anderson Cooper & Paris Hilton?!? I agree w/ the poster that said TMZ is starting to obviously side with Paris Hilton who has done zilch to contribute to society except show young girls how much of an ass one person can be.

For heaven's sake she didn't even finish high school! So what if she is pretty- there a millions of pretty girls!

Katrina in Prada? So what? He was there. Would he have more credibility for you if he wore a wardrobe from Wal-Mart? Less expensive clothing gives you more substance? And just because Kathy Griffin says it was Prada...

Anderson Cooper is an extremely intelligent guy, and has used his intelligence to bring awareness to many about conditions world-wide. He's compassionate and, I think, pretty down to earth -- Prada ensembles and all.

To be fair to Paris, I honestly don't think she's very intelligent. She would be unable to contribute as Anderson Cooper does, but that doesn't excuse her from being so self-absorbed and seemingly uncaring as to the woes of the real world....

Anderson is great! He speaks the truth and all this uproar about Paris
is worthless and a waste of our time.
An hour of watching her was painful and Larry King did a heck of a job
keeping it alive.
No wonder Paris does not do interviews. She cannot have a decent interview.
