Bomb Explodes Near Cooper During Live ReportBy: Amanda Crum - November 19, 2012
Anyone who says reporters don’t have a tough job should probably see this video.
Anderson Cooper, who was in Gaza over the weekend reporting on the Palestinian conflict, was standing a bit too close to the target of a rocket, and when it exploded behind him, he ducked in mid-sentence before carrying on with his report.
The talk-show host has been in the news lately for his adorable giggle-fits on “360” and for coming out via an email to a friend which went public, but the frightening video shows just how good a reporter he really is, and reminds us all of how dangerous the job can be.

I’m pretty sure this proves Anderson Cooper is a robot. http://t.co/Q7FSjX02

I hope Anderson Cooper stays safe- israel has this tendency to bomb the press.
