Anderson Cooper giving 1st post-prison interview to Dr. Jack Kevorkian
By Roger Friedman
Wasn’t Anderson Cooper just swimming with sharks last week on “60 Minutes”?
Now he’s doing something even more courageous: he’s interviewing Dr. Jack Kevorkian.
Dr. Death is giving Cooper his first post-prison interview this Friday. It’s not actually on CNN, but set for a lunch time live get together at CNN headquarters in New York.
You have to give Cooper credit for doing this. His own brother, Carter, committed suicide at age 23 in July 1988. Anderson wrote about it in his blog back in 2005: http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/08/16/brother/
Talk about a charged meeting. Kevorkian has said he helped at least 130 people die of physician assisted suicide. He served 8 years of a 10 to 25 year prison sentence for second degree murder. He’ll turn 81 in May.
