Christiane Amanpour: Life on the Front Line

What It Takes

She is one of the most recognized, respected and admired journalists in the world. Christiane Amanpour has covered just about every war and conflict of the past four decades and she has never shied from danger.  She talks here about the forces that shaped her: an unusual childhood in Iran, and the revolution that upended her family's life.  She describes the hard work and luck that landed her a job at CNN, when it was still a fledgling network, and the circumstances that led to her becoming a foreign correspondent, at a time when there were still huge barriers for women in television news.  She tells stories of some of the most important and horrifying world events that she witnessed up close. And she explains why her mantra in journalism is "truthful, not neutral."

Episode 917 - FIRE Christiane Amanpour For Nazi Remarks

Michael Lodge - Wealth, Business & Taxes

Whoever the factchecker was at CNN that approved Amanpour remarks on calling Trump and Americans who voted for Trump as Nazi's needs to be fired. She should be fired for making such a comparison, it's not just an attack on Trump, but every one of us who voted for Trump. What editorial fact checker approved her remarks on Americans and Nazi's? CNN, I hold you and Amanpour accountable for this hateful divide. You speak of unity and yet you speak hateful words towards the American people. I will not unite with you if you hate me, you think I am a fool? No way will American unite with Joe Biden if you continue to push hate. You have broken the journalism code of ethics and that makes you no longer journalists, just tabloid nonsense and political activists. You - CNN and Amanpour are guilty of hate and divide. I am holding you responsible for this election chaos and the hate you spread on a daily basis. Enough. Fire Amanpour.

S1 Ep4: The Making Of Christiane Amanpour - Journalism, Truth, Motherhood & George Floyd

The Making of...

Welcome to the fourth episode of The Making Of... from The Female Lead.  Our guest this week is the Chief International Anchor of CNN, Christiane Amanpour. To say that Christiane is a powerhouse is an understatement - she has covered every major war zone, interviewed the world’s most powerful leaders and asked hundreds of difficult questions in the toughest situations. We asked Christiane to choose six key life moments that have made her who she is today and her list is as formidable as you might imagine with some great revelations including her work as a pub cleaner and the time a political leader slammed the phone down on her, live on TV.  Our conversation didn’t just cover Christiane’s incredible life. This episode was recorded in June 2020,  just after George Floyd’s death, and so we spent the first part talking about the BLM protests happening around the world and Christiane gave her candid view on how journalists should deal with the question of impartiality during these important times. We recorded the interview over zoom, at the height of lockdown, so please bear with us as some bits may sound a little wobbly.  * Christiane Amanpour is CNN's chief international anchor of the network's award-winning, flagship global affairs program "Amanpour," which also airs on PBS in the United States. Beginning in 1983 as an entry-level assistant on the international assignment desk at CNN's headquarters in Atlanta, Amanpour rose through the organisation becoming a reporter at the New York bureau, and later, the network's leading international correspondent. Amanpour's fearless and uncompromising approach made her popular with audiences, and a force to be reckoned with by global influencers -- in 1996, Newsweek said that her reporting from conflict hotspots in the Gulf and the Balkans had helped make CNN 'must-see TV for world leaders' Amanpour has earned every major television journalism award including eleven News and Documentary Emmy Awards, four Peabody Awards, nine honorary degrees, has been named a CBE,  is an honorary citizen of Sarajevo and a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Freedom of the Press and the Safety of Journalists. * The Making Of is hosted by Bea Appleby and is edited by Lauren Lind. The production is brought to you by The Female Lead and the whole series is very kindly sponsored by Missoma
