Anderson Cooper
Anderson Cooper is a prominent gay reporter with the CNN news network. A scion of the Vanderbilt family, Cooper got his start in journalism by having a friend create a counterfeit press pass, so that he could report on issues overseas. In his career, he has served as correspondent and anchor for shows like World News Now, The Mole, Anderson Cooper 360, NewsNight, 60 Minutes, and Anderson Live. Read the latest news about Anderson Cooper, who came out in 2012 via a letter to Andrew Sullivan that was later published with his permission.
