(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The strange story of Representative Anthony Weiner and a Twitter photo introduced. [With Wolf Blitzer, WEINER - comments.] Statements from college student Gennette Cordova and Dan Wolf about the pictures quoted. [Yesterday with CNN's Dana Bash and Dan Barrett, WEINER - offers an analogy rather than a direct response to questions.] [Today, on MSNBC, ABC, CBS, WEINER - answers questions indirectly.]

(Studio: Wolf Blitzer) The first part of the Weiner interview with CNN aired. [WEINER - says it was a Twitter prank that has gotten an enormous amount of attention; states photographs can be doctored, the woman is a victim and did not get it, that someone made fun of his name; refuses to comment on how he uses special media; comments on problems with access to his account, the playfulness of Twitter and his feistiness.]

Cooper, Anderson;
Blitzer, Wolf
