Insightful Interview of Christiane Amanpour

My colleague Rima Abdelkadar recently interviewed journalist Christiane Amanpour about her new program on CNN. I was particularly intrigued by Amanpour's thoughts on the difference between fact-based reporting and commentary that's passed off as news by many voices in both old and new media. Her thoughts on why Americans don't get intelligent news coverage of international affairs are spot on.

From what I've seen of Amanpour's comments on US journalists, a lot of the great stuff they do ends up on the cutting room floor. That's a shame. I agree with her comment that it's morally wrong to kill a piece that required someone to put their life on the line to get. She's an amazing woman!
