    CNN's chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour has been awarded the Committee to Project Journalists' Burton Benjamin Memorial Award for "extraordinary and sustained achievement in the cause of press freedom." - CNN I know we all enjoyed a wonderful spread yesterday butt do you know what’s more delicious than turkey and all the fixings? An outraged, self-righteous turkey preaching about the merits of “the other white meat.”Specifically, Christiane Amanpour preaching to us, the deplorables, about the evil of tyrants and the value of truthiness.

    Josh Feldman at Mediaite pointed out that star PBS filmmaker Ken Burns is out on cable television ranting the liberal line again. The program was Amanpour on CNN International after the debate on Thursday. Christiane Amanpour, his fellow Obama enthusiast, was interviewing him about his latest PBS documentary on saving Jews from the Nazis, which they both naturally thought offered Republican parallels. First, they freaked out about Trump refusing to concede defeat 20 days before the voting ends and before anyone knows who won: AMANPOUR: What do you make first and foremost of the major Republican candidate refusing to accept...

    Here’s an article that accurately summarizes the state of media affairs in America (and by affairs, I mean “illicit”): CNN’s Christiane Amanpour Formally Comes Out as Pro-Hillary, Anti-Journalism.Serving only as video confirmation that 1) sexism is the new racism, 2) the media is snugly in bed with Hillary and 3) the media condones lying to the public as long as it is them doing the lying. All of which led to this Tweet. Narrative has gone from "Hillary is perfectly healthy, stop being sexist" to "FDR had Polio and was a good President" in less than 12 hours. — Ann...

    She’s a walking parody of an unhinged leftist ‘reporter.’...But even among leftist hacks, Amanpour is a special case: It’s almost as if she’s trying to mock herself — a Trump-is-a-Clinton-plant conspiracy theory, if you will, but in the mainstream media. She referred to devout Christianity as “totalitarian” in her August 23, 2007, CNN profile “Christian Warriors.” But in 2008, she fawned over the “progress” achieved by Fidel Castro, and in 2013 she wished Zimbawean dictator Robert Mugabe a happy birthday. If a higher-profile (read: important) person had such a rich historical cache of commentary, they would have already been driven...

    CNN's Christiane Amanpour took her left-leaning, pro-European Union activism to a new level on Tuesday during an interview of pro-Brexit politician Daniel Hannan. Amanpour, who recently blasted the referendum as an example of "xenophobia", tried to implicate the British member of the European Parliament as somehow partially responsible for supposed post-vote "hate crimes." Hannan didn't take her clear bias sitting down, however: "You guys have been shouting 'racist' so long, you're not listening to what we were actually saying...if I was relying on CNN...I would think that this was nativist vote, a protectionist vote. It's the opposite." [video below] The...

    Liberal CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour suffered an epic meltdown on Thursday night as it became clear that Britain was asserting its national sovereignty and voting to leave the European Union. The sneering Amanpour repeatedly derided it as an example of “xenophobia” and “white identity” politics. Early in the evening, with the result still in doubt, Amanpour told Anderson Cooper: “A lot of the Leave movements are led by the hard-right, very, very xenophobic, anti-immigrant, very populist, nationalist, white identity politics.” Later, as reality set in, the journalist referenced the current issue of The Economist and raged, “This marks a victory...

    Since the Gulf War, no one would ever accuse the beltway gang of being astute strategic thinkers. While the Democrats have not cornered the market in this regard, there’s no doubt the leftist DC establishment have become experts at developing policies that result in abject failures. These misadventures go down the memory hole in the offices of the NYT and the WaPo, except if a Republican is President. But not so with foreign news outlets. France 24 has highlighted Bill Clinton's arrogance and ignorance in one of history's classic leftist military interventions. In the early 90s, US media crews showed...

    NEW YORK (CNN) – President Obama spoke Wednesday at the U.N. General Assembly as he tackles a range of thorny international issues with his counterparts. Obama said Iran and North Korea “must be held accountable” if they continue to ignore international nuclear weapons treaties. Iran recently reiterated its unwillingness to give up its nuclear program, which the United States and other Western nations fear is being used to develop nuclear weapons. Iran insists its program is strictly for civilian power. U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice said she didn’t expect a direct meeting between Obama and Iran’s president, Mahmoud...

On’s home page Wednesday morning, the main headline asserted that Rouhani, in an interview with network reporter Christiane Amanpour, said that the Holocaust happened: “Iran’s New President: Yes, the Holocaust Happened.” Fars however, categorically denied the claim that Rouhani addressed the Holocaust by name, saying the network “fabricated” the story, adding the word ‘Holocaust,’ among other conciliatory phrases,...

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.

My own bet is that Rick Santorum will indeed score the surprise of the night, just as he told me he would . Yet even if he wins outright, four years from now in Iowa, I further predict that we in the media will...

Bachmann defended her position by pointing out that it was former Defense Secretary Robert Gates who admitted several months ago that Libya was not a “vital interest” for the United States. Bachmann suspected the military action seemed to be more focused on regime change than “humanitarian purposes.”...

Putting aside issues such as the suitability of a foreign affairs reporter for a show on domestic politics and reports of behind-the scenes opposition to her appointment, most of the criticism has concentrated on Amanpour’s political views and her allegedly biased reporting.

    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. In 2008, for instance, Amanpour said of herself, "I stay away from commentary and I stay away from ideology. All this stuff that we have seen marching into...

    CNN's Christiane Amanpour, who's been in talks with ABC for "This Week," has reportedly been offered the job. FishbowlDC reports that Amanpour told CNN colleagues about the offer and is currently "50/50" as to whether she accepts. If Amanpour does accept, the long-running Sunday show could he shaken up, according to the report. Amanpour said she wants to make "This Week" more about foreign affairs and less focused on domestic American politics. If she takes the job, her desire is to do a number of shows each year outside the country. If she takes the post, sources say this would...

    Christiane Amanpour, the Chief international correspondent of Cable News Network grew up in Tehran where her father was a shill for the Shah's government. Since that the overthrow of the of the Shah, Christiane, a Roman Catholic, has been making up for her father's support of the Shah by supporting Islamic Terrorism every chance she has. Christiane cut her teeth on her her one-sided coverage of the conflict in Bosnia. Since then she has continued to support the Islamofacist cause every chance she can; be it her admiration for Yassir Arafat (a terrorist and baby killer) right down the line...

    The invitation was on creamy stationery with fancy calligraphy: The Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran "requests the pleasure" of my company to dine with H.E. Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The dinner is at the Intercontinental Hotel — with names carefully written out at all the place settings around a rectangular table. There are about 50 of us, academics and journalists mostly. There's Brian Williams across the room, and Christiane Amanpour a few seats down. And at a little after 8pm, on a day when he has already addressed the U.N., the evening after his confrontation at Columbia, a...

    God’s Warriors oh I get it, the, “more people have been killed in the name of religion than any other belief system,” argument which isn’t even remotely true. More people have been killed in the name of secular humanistic philosophies and practices than have been killed on behalf of religion. [Come on Ms. Amanpour you'll have to do better than that!]

    For several weeks CNN has been hyping their miniseries God’s Warriors as an “unprecedented six-hour television event.” The series dedicates two hours each to “God’s Jewish Warriors,” “God’s Muslim Warriors,” and “God’s Christian Warriors.” Prior to the first airing, CNN invited several bloggers to preview a few clips from the series and to submit a question for Christiane Amanpour to be answered during a special webcast. The three clips provided by CNN each highlighted one of the “fundamentalist” branches of the three Abrahamic faiths: the segment on Jews focused on theocratic Israeli settlers, including the man who assassinated Yitzhak Rabin;...

    “In the Footsteps of bin Laden” is the work of Christiane Amanpour and Peter Bergen, the CNN consultant who famously interviewed the terrorist in a cave in Afghanistan in 1997. Mr. Bergen, on whose book “The Osama bin Laden I Know” this program is partly based, is mindful of the ways his subject manipulates the American media. He admits that Mr. bin Laden gave his first interview to Peter Arnett on CNN because he wanted to “use” the cable news channel to promote jihad. Nonetheless, in tonight’s documentary, Mr. Bergen sounds awed anew by the cloak-and-dagger shenanigans that Mr. bin...

    If Davie Rossie's ramblings were simply those of one more angry liberal pundit, they'd hardly be worth a comment. But what makes his utterances noteworthy is that when Rossie isn't churning out his once-a-week column, he is editing the news for the Gannett chain. Rossie is Associate Editor of Gannett's Binghamton paper, the Press & Sun Bulletin. In today's column, 'Once There Were Giants in Television News', Rossie laments that they aren't making TV newsmen like Edgar R. Murrow any more. With what might be condemned as sexism, nay, misogyny, had it been suggested by a conservative critic, Rossie grumps...

    - Iran lifted its ban on CNN on Tuesday, a day after the government barred the U.S. network from the country because of its mistranslation of nuclear comments by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state television reported. Ahmadinejad ordered the reversal "due to the expression of an apology" from CNN over the mistranslation, the state-run TV broadcast said. Iran imposed the ban after CNN misquoted the president as speaking of developing "nuclear weapons" when he actually referred to "nuclear technology." CNN admitted the mistake in a broadcast. Hard-liners called the mistranslation a deliberate act to misrepresent Iran's position at a crucial moment...
