Worldwide Orphans Foundation Honors Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper was given the Honorary Orphan Ranger award at the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO) annual benefit gala in New York on Monday.

Cooper was recognized for his reporting on the orphan crisis that hit Haiti after a devastating earthquake rocked the Caribbean country in January this year.

"WWO is proud to honor Anderson Cooper for shining the spotlight for the world on the devastating impact of Haiti’s earthquake on orphaned and vulnerable children,” said Dr. Jane Aronson, founder and CEO of WWO. “I first met Anderson Cooper in Haiti following the earthquake and was impressed then and continue to be impressed now, with the depth of knowledge and thought he brings to every issue he covers.”

While Anderson did do great work in Haiti wasn't it Soledad O'Brien who actually went back to Haiti time and time again to report on the orphans? She even made a documentary about them discussing their plight. But I guess since Anderson is the face of CNN he has to garner all of the praise right?
