Cooper's 60 Minutes Interview Repurposed For Cnn

With repurposing all the rage on the websites of broadcast and cable news networks these days, a different type of reuse was displayed on CNN Monday when Anderson Cooper's interview with American Idol judge Simon Cowell, which aired on CBS's 60 Minutes on March 18, turned up on Cooper's CNN show. "The complete interview is coming up," Cooper billboarded at the beginning of his Anderson Cooper 360 show, although the Cowell interview, while longer than the one that aired on 60 Minutes, appeared to be edited (perhaps to accommodate Cooper's report on the results of the Anna Nicole Smith autopsy).
