    When CNN rolled out the red carpet for Hillary Clinton’s town-hall interview with Christiane Amanpour, they did more than just build a set and invite an audience to participate. According to the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, who attended the event, CNN warmed up the crowd for Hillary and even coached them on how to cheer and make noise to demonstrate enthusiasm for the former Secretary of State. Note the whoops at the beginning of the broadcast, and near the end of this clip when Amanpour asks about her decision on running for President — cheers that were part of the...

    CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour flipped out on the AC360 Later Syria panel Thursday night, calling out the “false moral equivalence” of anti-interventionists. She clashed with blogger Andrew Sullivan over the emotion in the case, shouting down her fellow panelists to get a word in edgewise.After Anderson Cooper and Sullivan brought up the need to separate the emotion from the policy, Amanpour sighed and said, “I can barely contain myself at this point.” She proceeded to go on a rant about the “false moral equivalence” in arguing against going in. “How many more times do we have to say...

    The head of the opposition Free Syria Army, General Salim Idriss, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday that he has intelligence that the Assad regime is moving its chemical weapons out of the country. “Today we have information that the regime began to move chemical materials and chemical weapons to Lebanon and to Iraq,” General Idriss told Amanpour from inside Syria. It’s a huge claim that would fundamentally shift everything U.S. intelligence officials have in the past said they believe about the situation in Syria, CNN Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr reports.

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy.

    It turns out Christiane Amanpour's big-time career 180 -- she went from being CNN's chief foreign correspondent to anchoring ABC's Sunday talker "This Week" -- was short-lived. On Tuesday (Dec. 13), Amanpour announced that she was stepping down from the talk show gig to return to CNN and field reporting. She will, however, continue to do some work for ABC -- including primetime specials.

    “Meet the Press with David Gregory” was the #1 Sunday public affairs show again last week, with a 660K Total Viewer lead over #2 CBS’ “Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer.” But the bigger story is the loss of viewers of ABC’s #3 “This Week with Christiane Amanpour.” A year ago (Dec. 20, 2009) as the show was preparing for a host change, “This Week” drew 2.79M Total Viewers. Last Sunday it drew 1.91M — down -46% in one year. NBC and CBS were up year-over-year. “FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace“, was down slightly year-over year.

"She reads about Washington from her Central Park apartment. It's not like other war zones that you can parachute into. She is very cold and distant with the other bureau staff." Some resent Amanpour's friendship with Disney honcho Bob Iger and his wife, Willow Bay. Disney owns ABC. Other staffers gripe that despite her reputation

Buckley and “all of that sort of intellectual conservatism,” but she only showed respect for that tradition in order to contend “people,” who she failed to name, “are saying that right now, it's really gone to the extreme.” Repeating her “people” generality, she insisted: “People are looking at the Tea Party and saying this is not conservatism as we knew it but it's extreme.” George Will retorted: “Which is exactly what they said about Bill Buckley and Bill...

    Recently, Christianne Amanpour hosted a panel discussion meant to explore the misunderstood delineation between moderate and extremist Islam. A dichotomy is certainly brought to light in discussion, but considering Amanpour is a staunch Islamic apologist, it is probably not the one she meant to expose.  She likely sought to support the notion that Islam is peaceful, and to advance the belief that only a small contingent of radicals corrupts the faith.  To those ends, she enlisted guests of Christian and Muslim backgrounds for her panel, and I'm fairly certain she expected the Christian guests to attack Islam as an...

    Nine weeks since her hot launch as the host of one of the major Sunday political talk shows, Christiane Amanpour is tanking as the ratings for ABC's "This Week " have fallen dramatically to the point that the program occasionally drops to last place among the top three. "This Week," under hosts George Stephanopolous and Jake Tapper, at times hit No. 1, but usually held a strong second place in the Sunday morning talk show wars, after the perennial favorite, "Meet the Press" on NBC. But now "This Week" is winding up in third place more often than not...

    The Christiane Amanpour as "This Week" host experiment so far is a huge failure for ABC as ratings have plummeted since she took over the Sunday political talk show. Last Sunday's program attracted 29 percent less viewers than the same day last year. Making matters worse for ABC executives is the fact that Amanpour's numbers are far worse than interim host Jake Tapper's who did most of the anchoring after George Stephanopoulos left for "Good Morning America." As Steve Krakauer reported Monday, the decision to bring Amanpour over from CNN is so far not looking like a good one:

    It’s one thing to acknowledge that the Muslim world has had a negative reaction to America's war effort in Afghanistan and Iraq, but, when one starts referring to "the previous eight years" before the Obama administration, it starts to sound like partisan Democratic talking points. As ABC’s Christiane Amanpour appeared on Sunday’s Good Morning America to discuss President Obama’s predicament regarding his speech on the proposed mosque near Ground Zero, Amanpour at one point recounted that relations with the Muslim world had suffered during the "previous eight years" before Obama became President.

    This Sunday, former CNN war correspondent and television host Christiane Amanpour will take over as host of ABC’s venerable public affairs show “This Week.” Her selection for the post, however, has caused a surprisingly potent backlash . . . The most bitter of these critiques was occasioned by Amanpour’s 2007 documentary series God’s Warriors. The series examined religious extremism in three parts — on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, respectively. Many Jews and other supporters of Israel were outraged both by the format of the documentary, which equated Judaism and Christianity with radical Islam . . .

    As we continue with America’s most left-biased, working journalist list we feature a journo that takes herself quite seriously as a non-opinion styled journalist. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour really does think that no one can tell that she is a true-blue left-winger. Sadly, there is that all too human penchant of fooling oneself as much as one tries to fool others with this one. But that doesn’t stop her from making the claim.

    On CNN a few moments ago, Christiane Amanpour, in the midst of an otherwise completely warped report on the Gaza war, said that over the past year only two Israelis were killed by Hamas rocket fire. Her point in the segment was to intimate that Israel is overreacting to Hamas attacks that have been largely harmless. In order to do that, she had to abstain from mentioning important facts and context, such as that Hamas' attacks in 2008 more than doubled - to 3,278 from the the 2007 number.

    CNN’s chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour, reporting on Barack Obama’s speech in Berlin on Thursday’s “The Situation Room,” expressed her shock that the European crowd didn’t seem to have the same mania for the Democrat that the media has: “I did ask some people as they were leaving what they thought. Everybody said good, good. But I was surprised that there wasn't this sort of euphoria afterwards, given how many people had come to listen and how much it had been anticipated.” She later stated in the segment that one unnamed political analyst talked about how “people [in Europe] want...

    New TV Series Has 'Extremist' Christian Beheading 'Moderate' Muslim Last week, the BBC aired a new TV series titled "Bonekickers" touted as a "groundbreaking" show where "history comes alive," and a series that is "Based in fact." The premier episode, though features an odd thing if "fact" is the aim of the Beeb's new TV series: a Christian beheading a Muslim. Yeah, THAT is really a "fact" based premise, isn't it? Of course, the few remaining Christians in Britain have found themselves a bit put out by this "fact based" show where it is a Christian beheading a Muslim instead...
  • Amanpour Omits Husband’s Work for Albright, Downplays N. Korean Famine

    Christiane Amanpour interviewed former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, famous for her October 2000 meeting with North Korean dictator Kim "He’s Not a Nut" Jong Il, as part of her "Notes from North Korea" program, which aired on Saturday and Sunday evenings. During the segment, the CNN senior international correspondent failed to note how her husband, James Rubin, worked as spokesman and Assistant Secretary for State for Albright from 1997 until May 2000. Albright emphasized how "it's possible to have verifiable agreements" with the North Korean regime and how "negotiations need to be pursued actively." The Clinton administration that she...
  • Christiane Amanpour: Post Nam Cambodian Genocide Just Like U.S. 'Waterboarding' Today?

    So, do you want to see a most egregious example of equating apples to oranges? Well, even that old saw is too mild a metaphor to describe the disgusting example of Christiane Amanpour's latest foray into moral relativism. In her CNN piece titled, "Survivor recalls horrors of Cambodia genocide," Amanpour assumes that American "waterboarding" today is exactly the same thing as the genocide of millions as perpetrated by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s. Amanpour seems to think that waterboarding is the same thing as what Pol Pot did with prisoners that were "whipped raw, their fingernails...

    CNN ^ | 04/07/08 | Christiane Amanpour
    A recently disclosed memo gave U.S. interrogators the ability to use harsh methods -- what many call "torture" -- to extract information from terrorist suspects after 9/11. Around the world, critics saw it as another blow to American prestige and moral authority. The 2003 document also invokes wartime powers to protect interrogators who violate the Geneva Conventions, for example, by the use of waterboarding -- when a prisoner is made to think he is drowning. Half a world away, the divisive debate over whether waterboarding constitutes torture comes into sharp relief at the infamous S-21, Tuol Sleng Prison in Phnom...

    See [again, CNN's Tonight - Jihadists apologist] Christianne Amanpour's FAKE 'Jewish warriors' What a low level of fake “journalism” in turning self defense by Israelis into a “religious matter”, in a cheap attempt to try and equate anti terrorism to Jihadi fascists, only Islamic “warriors” kill in the NAME of religion, even Christianne Amanpour “strongest proof”: Baruch Goldstein did NOT act in the name of religion, he went mad and insane, personally after friends were all killed. CNN's program tonight 9 PM ET, which is nothing but an appeasement for the only ones that are of a real threat to...

    ....CNN's three part series God's Warriors was not journalism's or even that ubiquitous cable network's finest six hours. Cobbling together two hours of disjointed footage and commentary, CNN ostensibly exposed many of us - in Israel and the US - as radical Jewish warriors: No different or any less dangerous than those among the world's 1 billion Muslims who are radical in their way too. Our fiendish plot is also revealed to be aided by cartoonishly drawn Evangelical pawns. With zealous fervor, they mindlessly do the Israel lobby's bidding. Meanwhile, sympathetically depicted Palestinian victims and credible American figures - an...
  • Fear religion: CNN’s message to the nation (worshipping God creates scary people)

    MercatorNet ^ | September 26, 2007 | Sheila Gribben Liaugminas
    Christiane Amanpour had a clear message in her three-part series on CNN: worshipping God creates scary people. The drama of incited emotions relating to religion was elaborately crafted to fill television screens for six hours during CNN’s mini-series "God’s Warriors", but the drama has only increased among the viewing public since it aired, and those six hours have stretched into an ongoing backlash against the program. Actually, both programs: the television series, and the mission of implanting a message about religion in the minds of world viewers. The language is of "political theology" which, given an opportunity for progression, threatens...

    AINA ^ | Sep. 2007
    Not only did she avoid mentioning the Saudi (Arab) lobby, which is by far the most powerful lobby in America, but she also chose to solicit the opinions of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter (himself a lobbyist for Arab causes), as well as professor Mearsheimer, both known for their controversial anti-Israel positions. Stunningly, no expert contradictory opinion to these two was offered during the six-hour program. It would have been just as easy for Amanpour to pose the same questions to Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz or Professor Fouad Ajami.

    Because for 'Christianne Amanpour': Luxuary of ONE or two Arab "Palestinians" is more worth than LIVES of scores of Israelis? You haven't missed anything if you haven't seen the propaganda piece "God's warriors", or the bigoted part therein where a 'Palestinian' complains about the wall... The Threat Everybody knows what a genocide bomber is, everybody knows the massacres by "freedom fighters" 'Palestinians' as well as their reduction thereof after the erection of the security wall, or what radical 'Palestinians' intentions are, in their charter, as well as here and there declarations, from annihilation of all non Muslims, non Arabs [aka...

    Had CNN's Christianne Amanpour's "God's Warriors" not be a propaganda piece Had it be a documentary: You would have seen: Muslim clerics calling to kill non Muslims for no reason at all, for Allah. You would have seen: Video clips of homicide-bombers shouting 'Allah Akbar' (Allah is great!), at each massacre the Islamists perform. You would have seen: Jihad camps where little kids are being taught how non Muslims are apes and pigs and should be eliminated. You would have seen: Non violent Christians protesting abortion clinics (stressing the usual 'non-violence' aspect NOT the isolated 'bombing' of a clinic). You...

    JewishJournal ^ | August, 2007 Is there an Emmy Award for Biggest Disappointment? If so, I nominate CNN's three-part series, "God's Warriors," hosted or read or fronted -- but certainly not reported - by Christiane Amanpour. The investigation - their claim - into radicals of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim persuasion was CNN's highest-rated documentary ever, which just goes to show: Scratch any responsible news organization deep enough and you'll find a shallow, sensationalizing ratings whore. The big reveal of the program was this: There are extremists out there ready to blow us up or hijack our elections. There was no analysis: not what...
