Why Does Anderson Cooper Look Like an Angry Max Headroom?

Yahoo's main page has a picture of a very sour, angry looking Anderson Cooper (an "anchor" for a news-themed cable network called "CNN"):

Apparently, the guy who appears on a very low-rated cable news program didn't do very well on the celebrity version of "Jeopardy!", according to Yahoo's article:
With a final score that totaled $0, Cooper missed questions about world leaders, geography, and literature (among other topics). By the time "Final Jeopardy" came around, he was so stumped by a question about the author of "The Wizard of Oz" that his screen displayed simply the word "Who."
Anyone who's ever watched "Celebrity Jeopardy!" knows that the celebrity version is even easier than the Teen Tournament. Ending the game with no money at all is a unique embarrassment.

That aside, the picture Yahoo had on their main page, with the odd "Jeopardy!" set in the background and Mr. Cooper's sour yet robot-like expression and elegantly-sculpted hair made him look somewhat like 1980s cult hero Max Headroom:

Only, you know, far less animated and pleasant.

hahaaha... this guy is such a bimbo. it's sad that anyone takes him seriously. calling cnn "news-themed" that's up there with newsactors. i'm not sure i've ever seriously watched his show (as in pay attention to it... I know it's been on in the same room with me a few times).
