Anderson Cooper Chokes Up Reading Names of Orlando Victims
CNN's Anderson Cooper opened his show Monday night by struggling to read the names of the men and women who died in the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub over the weekend.
Cooper said he would not mention the name of the killer nor would he show a picture of him, electing instead "to try to keep the focus where we think it belongs, on the people whose lives were cut short."
It does not take long for Cooper to lose his composure as he gives a brief description of each of the victims. He manages to work his way through the names, with his voice cracking several times throughout the more-than-eight-minute clip.
