Anderson Cooper Puts His Foot Down

CNN's Anderson Cooper is taking a stand, saying he will not cover Heath Ledger's death because of all the speculation going on. He did write this blog on cnn.com to explain his reasoning:

"For the last two nights we have reported on actor Heath Ledger. His shocking death is clearly a story a lot of people are interested in, but tonight we will not be reporting more on it. The truth is there is not really anything new to report. The full results of the various tests done on Mr. Ledger will not be ready for perhaps a few weeks and there is very little new information. I have no doubt other networks will spend a lot of time tonight discussing his death and the various rumors about what might have caused it, but I am not a fan of speculation, so unless there is something really new to discuss we probably won't be covering it anymore anytime soon."
