Looks like our report on Anderson Cooper‘s secret CIA summers caught his penetratingly-blue eye. The CNN anchor responded within hours with a post on his show’s eponymous blog, titled “My summer job…nearly 20 years ago.” The gist of his reply: Aw, shucks, why would anyone be interested in li’l ol’ me?
“As a college student, I had a number of summer jobs and internships, including working at the CIA,” he wrote, noting that this was, like, a really, really long time ago. “The Bangles’ ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ was on the radio. I was 19-years-old, and like many college students was curious about a variety of careers.”
