PBS host Christiane Amanpour appeared puzzled as to why NBC spiked Ronan Farrow’s investigation into powerful Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. Discussing the disgraced Democratic donor on Monday, Amanpour asked the journalist: “Why do you think the media entities [spiked the story]? Our DNA is to be investigative. What was it about the media that wanted you not to tell these stories?”
Within mere hours of President Trump’s press conference with Vladimir Putin concluding, cable news had worked themselves into a frenzy that suggested the sky itself must be falling. While criticism of Trump’s foreign policy decisions – especially those pertaining to Russia – has been bipatisan, the sheer meoldrama of the liberal media’s comments suggested they had lost sight of what they were even covering.
After AC360 host Anderson Cooper deemed Monday's Trump-Putin press conference “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president,” the craziness continued with Cooper stating that “today is just an incredibly depressing moment in our time in our history as an American” while other panelists opined that it’s been a “surreal” day known as “the surrender summit.”
Reacting to the late Monday morning joint press conference (U.S. time) between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared that he had just witnessed “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader certainly that I've ever seen” at “[a]n extraordinary press conference.”
During Wednesday’s edition of New Day, the panel suffered a meltdown over President Trump’s suggestion that NATO members should pay their fair share and bringing up Germany’s reliance on Russia for oil. According to co-host John Berman: “This kind of diplomacy looks like Hulk smash. This looks like the avengers, Hulk smash.” Later, panelist John Avlon lamented that the office President Trump occupies “is the office formerly known as the leader of the free world. And he sure isn’t acting that way.”
CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News.
From the moment President Trump ended his remarks announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran Deal, it was DEFCON-1 at CNN with panelist after panelist losing their minds over the President’s decision. One after another, they almost universally claimed that leaving the deal has left America less safe, jeopardized progress with North Korea, handed Iran a “propaganda victory,” and destroyed “international unity.”
Many in the liberal media have blamed the recently alleged chemical attack in Syria on President Trump, citing his vow to pull American troops out of the region as having “emboldened” Syrian President Bashar-al Assad. Yet the same networks wildly praised the “amazing” and “potentially groundbreaking” 2013 deal in which President Obama entrusted Russian forces with the disposal of Assad’s chemical weapons arsenal.
It would be interesting to know if there’s a “pay gap” at CNN. If so, it’s terribly unfair. The network’s female employees run down all things Trump with just as much skill and vigor as their male colleagues. CNN International and PBS host Christiane Amanpour was a guest on Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show on Thursday. She came to promote her new show Sex and Love Around the World, but stayed to tell Noah that she enjoyed his “wonderful profile of Trump’s new chief economic advisor.”
CNN host Christiane Amanpour appeared on Saturday night's All Things Considered on NPR to plug her news series Sex and Love Around the World. Amanpour suggested everywhere in world, "sex is taboo," and we all sufffer in "the current extreme orthodoxy that we all live in, especially around the topic of sex." What world is she describing??
CNN International host Christiane Amanpour -- whose show is simulcast now on PBS stations -- lit into "homophobia" in the Catholic Church and all "Abrahamic faiths" in her Tuesday show. Her guest was Father James Martin, a controversial figure whose book is touted for showing "how the Rosary and the rainbow flag can peacefully meet one another." Amanpour said Pope Francis faced "a massive tsunami from the traditionalist wing."
Carrying on the tradition of celebrating a leftist with a softball interview, the latest “Talk” page at the back of the New York Times Sunday magazine showcased Christiane Amanpour, CNN international correspondent and leftist host of Amanpour, in “Christiane Amanpour Wants More Local News.”
