(Newser) – In case you missed it, Snooki launched her own news show this week (watch the entire awe-inspiring three minutes here), and she already has one very high-profile fan: Anderson Cooper. The CNN host called out "every news station in the world" last night on the Ridiculist for missing out on the opportunity to put Snooki behind the anchor desk. "I have always known that Snooki is a Renaissance woman," says Cooper (who calls her, among other things, "Cutie Couric" and "a really buzzed, pint-sized Sanjay Gupta.") "She's so much more than what you see on the Jersey Shore. Yes, she drinks, she dances, she parties and smooshes. But she also philosophizes, she also writes best-selling books. She also ... holds the key to my heart." (Read more Anderson Cooper stories.)
