On June 12, 2016, forty nine people were murdered and dozens more injured at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. It was one of the worst mass shootings in United States history. The attack left 49 families grieving, as well as survivors and first responders reeling from the horrors they witnessed. In the year since, many of those touched most deeply by this tragedy have found purpose in their pain and turned their grief into action.
In a moving one hour special, Anderson Cooper returns to Orlando and revisits this painful chapter of American history. Cooper helps tell the stories of what happened that night, and what has happened since in the lives of a number of people touched by the tragedy, including Christine Leinonen, mother of Christopher Andrew Leinonen, who was killed that night, as well as survivor Angel Colon, first responder, police officer Omar Delgado, and Pulse owner Barbara Poma.
"This was the deadliest terror attack in the United States since September 11th, and sickening assault on the LGBT community," said Cooper. " We wanted to remember the lives lost, and reconnect with many of those we first met one year ago."
The Pulse of Orlando: Terror at the Nightclub, a CNN Special Report will air Friday, June 30th, at 10pm ET.

Trump, a billionaire businessman and former reality TV star, promised to fix Washington and won the coveted office.

Anderson Cooper 360, Europe’s Refugee Crisis – Reports by CNN’s Arwa Damon
For months CNN’s Arwa Damon and her team followed the unprecedented wave of refugees coming to Europe, moving with them through the corridors of passage, and bringing a sense of immediacy to an unpredictable story with many lives at stake. The team showed exceptional grit and commitment, broadcasting live from all manner of transport as the refugees tried to push on through Europe to get to Germany, their preferred destination. The team’s endurance and skill was best illustrated by their race through cornfields with fleeing refugees, after the migrants broke out of a holding camp in Hungary where they were frustrated at being made to wait. The field team reacted quickly and managed to maintain a serious level of production at a fast clip. This distinctive work helped nudge European leaders to review their inconsistent immigration policies and deal urgently with the pressing needs of the refugees. FULL POST

“CNN SPECIAL REPORT #BEING13: INSIDE THE SECRET WORLD OF TEENS” AIRS OCTOBER 5TH AT 9PMET
EXTENSIVE MULTI-PLATFORM PROGRAMMING ACROSS CNN’S DIGITAL AND SOCIAL PLATFORMS
Are tweens addicted to their phones? How does social media intensify the emotional roller coaster ride of Junior High? And most importantly, how is plugging in changing growing up? These are just some of the questions that inspired CNN’sgroundbreaking investigation and scientific pilot study, “#Being13: Inside the Secret World of Teens.”
To discover the controversial world that middle school kids live in today, Anderson Cooper 360° focused its lens on the place where teens spend so much time together – social media. Hundreds of 8th graders across the country agreed, with the consent of their parents and schools, to allow child development experts to follow their posts on Instagram, twitter and Facebook over six months. 150,000 posts later, all of the good, bad and ugly that kids experience online was revealed in technicolor. Parents and teens also completed in-depth surveys about social media’s impact on families. In partnership with child psychologist Dr. Marion Underwood and sociologist Dr. Robert Faris, CNN’s “#Being13” is the first large scale study to analyze what kids say to each other on social media and why it matters so deeply to them.
