Anderson Cooper's Advice to Children: "Don't Be a Blowhard"
CNN's silver fox stopped by a Bay Ridge school on Friday to talk about being a reporter, and how much he doesn't like to hear himself talk. For someone who is on the news every goddamn night, Cooper sure made it a point to mention twice while talking to these kids how much he doesn't like to hear himself talk. Oh well, guess it's always good to teach them early to be humble, right?
He spoke about being shot at for the first time, and told students considering a career as a news anchor to ???try to resist becoming a blowhard.???
"Hey kids, when you come from Vanderbilt blood, attend Dalton, and then go to Yale for college, it's always good to keep it real. Thug Life. Don't be a blowhard." I imagine then Cooper dropped the mic, said "Coop, out!" and left the stage.
