Anderson Cooper spoke with Ebola survivor Nancy Writebol about the first patient diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. He is currently listed in serious condition at a Dallas hospital.
When asked how she would advise him and his family, Nancy Writebol told Anderson: “Well in the first place, we would just want them to know that we’ve been praying for them and we know this is a very difficult time. I think one of the things they should know about Ebola is that, you know, you can have really good days, Anderson, and then you can have really bad days and it’s an up and down disease. And so if they’re having a really bad day, don’t give up. Because it’s very possible the next day is going turn around and look better.”
The full interview will air tonight at 8 pm on CNN’s AC360°.
"Government minders pulled me aside – they were shaking – and said we needed to go right now back to Pyongyang. I was nervous – I didn't know what was happening," Ripley said.
We got in this van and drove to an area of the capital that we've never seen before off the regular route up to this nondescript building. And it was only when we were standing at the front door that they told us...we would be talking with the three Americans who were being held in North Korea."

CNN's Jim Scuitto speaks with Anderson Cooper on AC360 about Vice President Joe Biden's call with Iraq Prime Minister Al-Maliki, two other leaders.
Anderson Cooper 360° has been reporting on allegations of veterans dying while waiting for care at VA hospitals. Drew Griffin spoke with a doctor who claimed one hospital was even keeping a secret waiting list.
For the past six months, AC360°'s Drew Griffin has repeatedly asked Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to talk about the allegations. This week two veterans groups, including the American Legion, and two U.S. senators called on Shinseki to resign.
Now he's breaking his silence, but he is still not speaking with Drew.
Tonight on Anderson Cooper 360°, former Clippers G.M. Elgin Baylor and his wife Elaine spoke exclusively to Anderson Cooper for the first time since news of the Sterling tape broke.
Baylor is an 11-time NBA All Star and a Basketball Hall of Famer. For more than two decades, he was the General Manager of the L.A. Clippers. He says he was fired unfairly and filed a wrongful-termination suit against the team, naming Donald Sterling directly in his complaint.
He talked to Cooper about his experience working for Sterling and how Sterling would bring women into the locker room and point out the black players saying “Look at those beautiful black bodies.”
Two U.S. Senators are now calling for Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation. This comes a day after the American Legion, the nation's largest veterans group, called on Shinseki to step down. It follows Senior Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin's reports on allegations of vets dying while waiting for care from VA hospitals.

This week marks one year since Cleveland kidnapping survivors Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus escaped their captor. For Michelle Knight, it ended more than a decade of torture.
Last night on AC360°, she discussed her ordeal with Anderson. She detailed her kidnapping and described what it was like to adapt to what she described as "a decade of darkness."
