On Monday's Amanpour & Co. show on PBS (also shown on CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour devoted a segment to interviewing the director of a film, titled Incitement, that has come under criticism for suggesting right-leaning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helped stoke up "incitement" that led to the 1995 assassination of left-leaning Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by a Jewish extremist.
During Monday's Amanpour & Company on PBS (and CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour spent much of her show discussing the issue of climate change allegedly caused by global warming, and at one point negatively characterized word that there has been an increase in global warming skepticism in other countries as she asked her guest if it meant things are "getting worse" in terms of convincing people action needs to be taken.
During CNN’s 2019 Citizen Conference Thursday, CNN International journalist Christiane Amanpour practically bowed down to interviewee Anita Hill, calling her an “icon” who was unfairly persecuted after she accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in 1991. The British journalist railed against sexism in American politics, even relating Hill to Hillary Clinton unfairly losing the 2016 election.
On Monday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour gave liberal actress Jane Fonda a forum to promote her alarmist views on global warming, picking up on the veteran political activist's recent push to hold a weekly protest outside the U.S. Capitol on the issue. The liberal activist railed against the fossil fuel industry, fearmongered about there allegedly being only a decade left in which to cut carbon dioxide emissions, and complained that American "individualism" is a problem.
On Friday's Amanpour and Company show on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour joined guest Ta-Nehisi Coates in linking the legacy of slavery in America to illegal immigrant children being held in cage-like detention centers as Coates promoted his new book, The Water Dancer. Amanpour even commented that it was "hard" to hear her guest say the words "kids in cages," even though these detention centers were built by the Barack Obama administration and designed that way to make it easier for Border Patrol agents to watch out for the wellbeing of detainees as they are held typically for a short period (less than 72 hours) after apprehension until they can be transferred to longer-term facilities.
On Thursday, CNN International and PBS aired a segment in which Christiane Amanpour and her guests fear mongered about the collapse of the United Kingdom at the hands of Prime Minister Boris Johnson as well as the end of “a really great renaissance” in Britain.
On Friday, CNN International (and by simulcast, PBS) host Christiane Amanpour interviewed Matteo Salvini, the deputy prime minister of Italy, whom she found repulsively Trump-like. For trying to limit immigration -- and even imply that it was preferable to admit more Christian migrants than Muslims -- he was apparently casting "the dark shadow of fascism" on Italy.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour praised Angela Merkel on Tuesday, cheering the “courageous, compassionate immigration policy" that has let over one million Muslims into the country. Conversely, she condemned conservative movements, which she described as “dark old demons” and “very dark forces.”
On Thursday's Amanpour and Company on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour spent more than 20 minutes covering newly passed laws restricting abortion in a number of states, but only heard from the pro-abortion side as she spoke with liberal activist Gloria Steinem for almost 10 minutes, and then Planned Parenthood member, Dr. David Eisenberg, who performs abortions in Missouri.
In a pre-recorded interview that aired on Tuesday's Amanpour and Company, PBS host Christiane Amanpour slanted left on gun control and global warming alarmism as she spoke with liberal New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
On PBS’s Amanpour and Company Tuesday night, actor Kelsey Grammer made some surprising statements you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in Hollywood admit: that they are conservative and support what President Trump is doing in Washington.
On Tuesday, CNN International anchor Christiane Amanpour did an interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in Ireland. (It also aired rerun-style later on the PBS show Amanpour & Co.) It drew some attention because Amanpour asked about anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party, and Pelosi insisted there was no "taint" of it. Perhaps it's not a surprise that ABC, CBS, NBC, and the PBS NewsHour skipped over this interview all week.
