Starting Monday, February 10th, 2014, tune-in to @THIS HOUR from 11am- 12p ET for the most interesting news stories of the day.
If you’re talking about it, so are we with anchors John Berman and Michaela Pereira.
Again, it is the media that promotes racism in America. You just had a reporter on your show reporting about a shooting in Texas at a police station. Twice, your reporter said a WHITE man etc..... Please tell me what in the world has the color of the mans skin have to do with the story? Why must YOU constantly define people as white, black etc.? You are the ones who create hard feelings and tension in our communities when you constantly put labels on the people in your stories. So again, what specifically do you feel is the reason you must add the persons race or color to this or any other story?
Why was this prosecutor allowed to deal with this case,when his father was a cop killed on duty.
Sept.30 , '14. Berman was talking about the horrific crime where the coworker beheaded an employee. Berman more than once, said no matter how you "slice" it, this is not good. Yikes!!!! Berman needs to be a little more observant in his choice of words!!! Thanks
Thank you for sharing your concerns. John Berman has apologized for his unfortunate comments.
You may view his apology on his Twitter account at this link: https://twitter.com/JohnBerman/with_replies
Watched the show this morning about isis. We are going to have to send ground troops in to " mop up" after air strikes. If we wait and do nothing we will have another "Pearl Harbor" on our hands..
Good Morning! I found your Home Depot identity theft announcement very interesting. I think the story goes farther than Home Depot. I was recently affected in the exact way you described. However, I did not purchase at Home Depot. They found a way to take info beyond Home Depot! – Bea
In regards to the Ferguson, Mo situation on now, the police waited to question the other subject with Michael Brown due to the unrest and the fact that taking in the subject would cause more problems within the community. The photo's of the robbery show Mr. Brown Assaulting the store owner and the fact that this happened could be true that he attacked the Officer as well! My condolences to the Brown family.
I think the police should have released all the information coming out now sooner. I know there is an investigation and that has to be respected but I think the delay wasn't good. I hope we get the entire story as it is being released now. I like the way that MSNBC just went to another interview when they were playing the second witness' testimony. I hope the real story is told real soon. I expect one of these news media including CNN will tell the truth and not what is politically correct. The media that has no agenda will be the most successful.
You mentioned that the police chief, fire chief and mayor are white given a 67% African American population. Perhaps none of the latter qualify?
Additionally, as was the case in Los Angeles, why must there be looting as part of the freedom to demonstrate?
Seriously! Blue Ivy's hair made CNN? Disappointing.
Dear Berman and Michaela, neither of you should be engaged in basing successful leaders of powerful foreign lands in order to elevate a mistaken democratic politician, especially someone like Hillary Clinton. You have to admit the reality: she was weak and irresponsive to save those four Americans who were sadistically murdered in the American embassy. She was in charge of the Department of State at the time. Moreover, she refused to testify before Congress and outrageously denied the right to patriotic Republicans in Congress to investigate this incident further. Mr. Putin was calling her weak, not all women. He promoted so many women into power in Russia, but mot those, obviously, who cannot even admit their own mistakes in pubic. Speaking of Crimea, this region was Russian in the past, and the majority of Crimeans think that they come back yo mother Russia, away from neo-fascist and oftentimes highly sadistic and murderous western Ukrainians. They do not want to be live under they backward leadership. Even some people in Germany call present day western Ukrasinian leadership in Kiev as bandits, neo-fascists, and "terrorists" with respect to their prime minister Yatsenyuk. Your network make this country look very uncompassionate and siding with this backward government in Ukraune. The government that is killing women and children. Under the recent Republican leadership, the United States, was not siding with neo-fascist regimes. Your entire network disregard the reality in Ukaraine that many predominantly Christian women and children are murdered every day, even now in this very moment. Yet you are basing Putin, and promote sanctions against the holy Russia, who liberated along with the American army liberated the world from fascism. Some American politicians may be brought to justice for promoting sadistic western Ukrainians into power and for blocking the russians from responding to this genocide in eastern and southern Ukraine. There are literally risking to be brought to justice in the future for engulfing the genocide in Ukraine and for the American north-eastern region as well as California more poor by driving the Russian investments elsewhere and as a result, making even more Americans below the poverty line. And all this over unlawfully created country such as Ukraine. That was created by forging documents twenty-three years ago. All people of then Soviet Union never voted for their establishment, even in the present-day Ukrainian territory. Their country is not working as a country. And no mistaken democrats can put it together, not even by tank democracy that their backward leadership in Ukraine is trying to do today. The democrats should stop this obsession with basing other foreign leaders over Ukraine that some politicians even call now as a state that is no longer exist, for they have permanent disunity between the west and the east. The east and the south used to be a part of Russia, and the west used to be called Galichane, not Ukrainians, just less than 100 years ago.. The politicians should stop making countries based solely on language, not unity within the region. In Ukraine, there is clearly no unity, and not all of them speak Ukranian, yet all of them speak Russian even today. The bottom line is that no one should engage in putting this country down or impoverishing this country over dysfunctional Ukraine. This not why the democrats were elected into office, and, moreover, this is not what the American
constitution allows. No one should side with backward regime and control the press. Obviously, you need more conservative and more patriotic American TV anchors on CNN, who protect the American national values, not elevate a mistaken politician at the expense of creating more tensions with the Russians. That not what the American people want. Only 10% of Americans want the United States to be engage in Ukraine. You need to deliver the news to all Americans, not just 10%. So you need to deliver the news from the opposing parties as well, without insulting popular foreign leaders of any country. We need to preserve decency on TV. and Hillary Clinton herself was for it in the near past. Mostlikely, she still stand for it even now, so let's keep it that way.
Please stop talking about small stuff, like what Michelle Obama has to say about food; talk about the real issues that are wrong with this administration; talk about the abuses of power of the current president; talk about the welfare society that democrats have created; talk about the billions and billions wasted by special interest groups on both sides of the isle. Investigate and gives the billions being wasted by the government, and so on, and so on.
The ripple effect from these mass murders up in Santa Barbara is impossible to calculate, and everybody is asking 'could something more have been done?' I hear that there were background checks made when he applied for gun licenses. This young man had been seeing therapists since he was a child....what type of background check could possibly have been done and approved when this was in his history? Was it just rubberstamped? It's absolutely shameful, so I'm thinking that, YES, something could have been done to prevent this young man from LEGALLY having guns in his possession. Whether, because of his disturbed mind he wouldn't have caused some other tragedy, we'll never know....
I enjoy watching Michaela Pereira; she brings the news to life with the right approach! Berman & Michaela make a Great team!
Thank you for your kind words. So glad you enjoy the program.
Happy Friday eve!

Continually blaming the Malaysian government for providing misinformation and cancelled meetings with victims' families and deriding officials is becoming more than tiresome. The airline said from the very first moment, "prepare for the worst" regarding the fate of flight MH370. Does CNN honestly believe that Malaysian authorities do not want to find their plane? This speculative reporting by CNN is now all too common – disperse blame, vilify officials, misrepresent the facts, all to feed a viewership anxious to engage in rumor and a false reality.
Is the "ping" being heard by the search team(s) the same sound as the sound emitted by a submarine which is also searching underwater?
to @ this hour
Hasn't new area been flown over, boats passed through, for days (in order to reach previous search areas)?
We'll share your question with the teams reviewing viewer submissions. Stay with CNN as we continue to cover this mystery.
Lola / CNN VCM
Hello CNN. If MH 370 is under water...is it possible authorities can not find it because the black box were disabled before or during flight along with ACARS and the transponder?
Starting my day with news and a bit of humor, not to mention a Handsome anchor named Berman,
you know it's going to be a good day!! :-) Much success to you and Michaela.
Thanks for you kind comments for John and Michaela.
Happy weekend from @ThisHour!

I can't believe CNN moved Michaela and it wasn't really well advertised! I just found out by fishing around on the web trying to see what happened. Anyway, I am thrilled she has been put back where her talent belongs front and center! I watched her for years on another network and she was always marvelous ! I am now waiting for 8:00 am to arrive so I can watch her shine. Thank you CNN take care of our girl she is a loving, compassionate, brilliant treasure!
Michaela Pereira is still on New Day; she's just taking a few days off this week.
CNN actually added another hour of Michaela and John Berman with @ThisHour.
Hope you'll tune in for all our great CNN programs.

I love this show and Michaela is just a warmth of fresh air... She deliver the news like nobody's business.! John and Michaela works Superb together...One thing I would suggest would be more LIVE shots from varies places.. I'm young and to me @this hour so be more upbeat and more entertaining segment.. Both Michale and John have great personality and can actually hit the ball out of the park. It will totally different from other news.. sometimes u get tired of hearing about the same news all day on every segment.. I have @this hour recording daily .... I love Michaela.
Look, if these confederates want to pay homage to their ancestors, that's fine with me . What this license plate says to me is " Sons of Confederate losers." These veterans got their as&es kicked big time and if their descendants are proud of it, flaunt it. They are just bunch of losers. African Blacks must not be bothered by it because that's how these ex KKK or KKK sympathizers like to rub salt on you knowing you get offended. You black folks should just laugh at these idiots who want to glorify themselves as losers.
Interesting segment about the confederate license plates dispute in Georgia. Observing freedom of speech, any motorists offended by it can actually write to the vehicles driver anonymously using Haloplate. Changes the whole dynamic of making a statement, knowing you can't recieve response. Any offended party should Haloplate their thoughts directly to the drivers and let them digest the impact of their actions directly.
Even today I am humored by the comments of how the confederate flag offends certain groups of people. How about all the soldiers and families that fought and died for the rights of what they believed in. There are many southern families both white and black that are proud of their heritage to stand up for their rights. The confederate flag is a symbol of our nation standing up for its freedom, and rights as a free nation, people may be offended, but get over it, those people are enjoying those freedoms that were fought for. If the license plate offends you then you have the choice/right/freedom to chose another license plate. I for one see the license plate as a symbol of our free nation, a time in history that should not be forgotten or hidden.
The flag of big time losers.
Hi, I love your show. You guys are doing a great job. However I would like to bring to your notice a mistake on your show dated 2/19/14 at around 11.51 am. During the show when the winters olympic medals table was displayed on the screen with USA at # 3 and Netherlands at #2 there flags were interchanged. I understand its not a big issue but I thought you guys should know about it.
Again love what you guys are doing.
I am disgusted with the interviewees on your segment about the rich being the GREAT HUMANITARIANS of this country! Sure they provide jobs for we ungreatful citizens making a wopping $35,000 a year! I don't know where you come up with your satistics, but I believe their are a lot more who make less then this, and a lot that have to be supported by the goverment. The reason being the fantastic rich people supplying the jobs want to pay as low a wage as they can get away with while giving themselves as much as they can get away with. Also they get all the tax breaks and subsidees from the goverment helping them to get richer! Keep blaming the 99% for being ungreatful! This will one day come to bite you in the ass!
Had to look hard to find a place to comment. I don't do 'social media'.
Watched your new show today, cold day in MA, and enjoyed you both. THanks,
Thank you for your kind words, Joan. We apologize that you had such difficulty finding @ThisHour on CNN.com. We'll be sure to share your feedback with the producers.
Hope you'll join us again and let us know what you think of the stories. You said you don't use social media, but if you change your mind, find us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/thishour and on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/thishour.
Have a super afternoon!
Love Berman & Michaela together....good flow, chemistry on-air, and content. The on-air pairing will improve over time and they will knock it out of the park....Berman is good while Michaela is just outstanding and I hope CNN exec's know that fact..
In time I could see this duo moving to CNN primetime and do well....CNN, in my opinion, is so weak in those time slots.
Likewise I wish they were doing a segment and/or discussion on "One Billion Rising" which is global on Valentine's Day. Being a father with a daughter I strongly feel that is important and the issue needs to showcased and discussed.
Thank you for your time.
Good morning, James,
Thanks so much for your very kind words for Berman and Michaela. So glad you're enjoying the program.
We appreciate all feedback you shared and will be sure to send that to our senior management for review.
Hope you are safe and warm today and that the ugly weather is not negatively affecting you!
Have a lovely Thursday!
The comments by Matt that second place being the country that leads the world in crack smoking Mayors is just wrong. I believe but have not done the research but I can recall a number of USA mayors Marion Barry Washington a fellow from Detroit and so on.
What's next Matt are we going to be winning because of some one of such as our once a decade sick shooting attack where in the states this is a monthly occurrence.
In Canada we use fists instead of lead, we have one Crack Smoking politician that got caught and it almost sounds like sour grapes that USA is besmirching our Olympic atheletes whose only performance enhancing substance is a highly unusual pure Maple Syrup to clean water concentration in their sweat.
These Olympic athletes deserve the world's respect.
Have a good day EH!
Hi I really do like the new show it seams witty and Berman and Michaela do seem to work well together. The one problem I have is that the set seems cramped with the co-hosts seated so close together it feels like they being squished on to the same seat. I would like to see them able to turn and speak and look at each other occasionally but I will be watching I enjoyed the previous programming and all day my TV is turned to CNN. Thanks for the good work. I look forward to this show being on for along time.
Thanks for your input, MMeier. We'll share the comments with the producers.
Hope you're having a lovely day!
Happy to see Michaela into her new position as she shouldn't have to be in the 'shadow' of anyone else. Still, I have observed that she appears to be 'trying too hard' and could settle down a bit. Her constant comic facial expressions are distracting from her natural beauty and are, sorry to say, clownish and not needed to express a viewpoint or give a reaction. That's it pretty much.....she reacts to excess and it is uncomfortable to watch. I think she is too conscious of her weight and has a complex about it, which shouldn't be the case, as she is quite beautiful regardless. I wish I could tell her to "relax" and act natural. I guess the one thing I can't know for sure is 'if' she acts that way all the time! If that's the case, well, I suppose it's endearing to many or else how could she be so accomplished. Thanks for listening.
I am so happy for them two especially Michaela deserved it!!! I felt like cnn did her wrong with New Day but CNN you guys have redeemed yourselves in my eyes. Great pair to do the news
Berman and Michaela – what a great combination. I have watched CNN for many years and the changes being made are super. Adding Michaela is one of those welcome additions. I really enjoy when a host shares personal and touching stories. It has been good to see John Berman so early in the morning – just the right amount of news and humor as I start my day.
Hey just watched part of your program. It is afresh approach. Michaela, thank you for being so vulnerable in sharing your personal story. I wish you both success.
Stopping the TPP before we lose more jobs to low paid workers in 3rd world countries or countries with slave labor. NAFTA was the start of our countries economic slide. To make matters worse,, we keep bringing immigrants who work for low wages and cost workers jobs in construction as one example. If we want to keep up high standards of living in the US, we must provide citizens with decent wages and good education.
