We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: What Hillary Clinton heard after the Bin Laden raid, a regional custom sends Anderson Cooper around the bend, and Jaws is getting prettied up.
First-person recollections of the Bin Laden raid from people who watched it unfold will never stop being compelling. Already, the accounts are growing more textured and layered: those who were in the White House that night seem to be getting more comfortable talking about what they experienced before and after the operations. Hillary Clinton talked about the raid at the U.S. Naval Academy last week, and it's absolutely riveting, just her up there talking about how she could hear the students at neighboring George Washington University spreading the news after the president's speech. It's a detail that sticks. [via CNN]
Anderson Cooper suffered a major attack of the giggles last night during a segment on Dyngus Day, a Polish celebration marking the end of Lent. It sounds snarky, the white-haired man cracking up at folks in Buffalo ringing in Dyngus Day, but all parties accept the word Dyngus is inherently hilarious, so it's fine. Buffalo's even extended an invitation for Cooper to participate in "the 2013 Dyngus Day experience." [via CNN]
