I leave CNN with the utmost respect, love and admiration for the company and everyone who works here. This has been my family and shared endeavor for the past 27 years and I am forever grateful and proud of all that we have accomplished."

    I lost ALOT of respect for Amanpour in 2009 when she was on Real Time completely endorsing Palin as VP simply because she is a woman. At this point, I think Amanpour should be hosting Inside Edition or some biased show on Fox.

    I love Christiane, she is a wonderful reporter and I dont believe she is biased, I could be wrong but from the reporting I've seen she is extremely focused on getting across a bipartisan view.

    She has got 'chops' and credibility. Good for her!!



  12. 12

    If I'm forced to watch anything on CNN, the only person I'm willing to watch is Christine Amanpour.

    She's a fantastic, brilliant, articulate journalist. Good on her!!



  13. 13

    She supports terrorists.

    She's just a jack off and a liar.



  14. 14

    And she supports terrorists who HATE GAYS!!



  15. 15

    Finally a real reporter on Sunday shows who will ask the probing questions. Unlike that tool Gregory who is a republican boot licker.

    Re: johnnydepprules
    unfortunately, that's NBC not ABC. She's replacing George Stephenopolos not Gregory. Maddow needs to replace him. She has more smarts in her ear lobe than Gregory has in his entire being.



  18. 18

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I want you at CNN!!



  19. 19

    She would look great with my cum on her face.



  20. 20

    She has to be better than Georgina, but lets face facts, there will never be another David Brinkley. He made that show!



  21. 21

    I also want everyone to remember this! I bet you dollars to donuts that George Stephenopoulos and his wife divorce within six months!

    I really like Christianel. A very intelligent lady who has paid her dues in the field in journalism. Her voice can really grate on my nerves though. I'll give the show a try though.
