Anderson Cooper Doesn’t Like Journey, FunThis office-party report comes from our guest correspondent, Anderson Cooper. Okay, so he’s not really a guest correspondent; he wrote about his company holiday party on his personal blog and we’re going to re-post it. But wouldn’t it be amazing if he was a roving reporter for us? We’d send him on special assignment all the time! We can think of a few things we’d like him to get to the bottom of. Ahem, anyway, here’s what the Coop had to say about the 360 holiday bash this weekend:
As far as I know there were no terribly embarrassing incidents. You know the kind of thing, when, late at night, you decide you really, really have to tell your boss what you’ve always thought of him. No one seemed particularly sheepish this morning in the office, so unless some incriminating photos suddenly surface, it was a successful party. There was an after party that involved karaoke, and who knows what else, but I got sleepy and didn’t attend. The truth is I’ve never understood the appeal of karaoke, and being asked to sing some song by Journey just seems like a nightmare to me.
Wait, wait, wait. Anderson, did you just knock Journey?? Don’t make us reassign you from the 24-hour weather coverage of the heat wave inside our pants. What if they asked you to sing something by Heart? A little “Alone,” perhaps? We can definitely see Anderson rocking out to Hanson’s “MMMBop.” Or at least something by Kylie Minogue.

News Corp. Gets Drunk for Climate ChangeMost companies are kind enough not to have their holiday parties on a Friday. After all, you have enough personal holiday parties to drag your ass to this weekend (we saw you all waiting in line at Trader Joe’s for your half-dozen $4.99 bottles of Merlot). But what does Rupert Murdoch care about your piddling little plans? News Corp. was having their event on Friday, and all one billion of their employees damn well showed up. Their gargantuan party took over several ballrooms in the midtown Hilton, and of course, we duly waited in line (halfway down the block!) to get in, just because we knew you’d do it for us. We were not disappointed — it turned out to be the biggest private party we have ever attended in our lives. After the jump, find out what theme room caught Bill O’Reilly’s fancy, and which video games made the News Corpsies shake their bones.
