Mr. Cooper has rarely missed an opportunity throughout his career to showcase his buff physique (as anyone knows who remembers him stripping to a bathing suit to quiz Michael Phelps.) But Mr. Cooper is no longer the only CNN correspondent with a self-conscious taste for form-fitting charcoal T-shirts, accessorized with a tiny microphone clipped at the neck.
Looking somewhat sheepish about it, a newly sleek Dr. Sanjay Gupta moved through the ruins of Port-au-Prince wearing a snug gray T-shirt, his hair styled in the obligatory CNN crop. His colleague Jason Carroll, reporting on Wednesday's aftershock, and looking like a guy who had dropped to the ground and done 20 quick pushups before going on air, wore a T-shirt so snugly revealing it called into question whether a disaster zone is the right place to flaunt one's gym physique.
Shockingly, when asked to weigh in on this very important issue, a "spokeswoman for CNN declined to comment."
