Many Chinese people have been hoodwinked by their so-called " d--e-m--o-c-r-a-cy", "fr-ee s--p-e-ech". Blessing in disguise. Now we Chinese have realized it is an excuse to topple China. Those ill-wishers just hope China would be in a mess so that they could fish in the trouble water.  They don't really want to see an improving and rising China. That is the crux of matter. Almost all coverage in the mainstream Western media outlets are negative. They assail China and Chinese people at will, turning a deaf ear to the voices of grassroot of China and,  trampling down on the feeling of Chinese people with their white hoofs (Some paint  their hoofs white). They'll waste no time and opportunity to laugh at China and Chinese whenever we make any mistake rather than giving a hand sincerely and warmly. They are taking double standards.

"As an upright man, don't be too CNN" has become the most red hot catchwords among Chinese netizens.

Don't try to trigger any misunderstanding among Chinese and then snicker. It is a SHAME! Uncle SAM , again, you are off  the beam. Talk about Jack Cafferty and CNN.

Amanpour: CNN practiced self-censorship

CNN's top war correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, says that the press muzzled itself during the Iraq war. And, she says CNN "was intimidated" by the Bush administration and Fox News, which "put a climate of fear and self-censorship."

As criticism of the war and its aftermath intensifies, Amanpour joins a chorus of journalists and pundits who charge that the media largely toed the Bush administrationline in covering the war and, by doing so, failed to aggressively question the motives behind the invasion.

On last week's Topic A With Tina Brown on CNBC, Brown, the former Talk magazine editor, asked comedian Al Franken, former Pentagon spokeswoman Torie Clarke and Amanpour if "we in the media, as much as in the administration, drank the Kool-Aid when it came to the war."

Said Amanpour: "I think the press was muzzled, and I think the press self-muzzled. I'm sorry to say, but certainly television and, perhaps, to a certain extent, my station was intimidated by the administration and its foot soldiers at Fox News. And it did, in fact, put a climate of fear and self-censorship, in my view, in terms of the kind of broadcast work we did."

Brown then asked Amanpour if there was any story during the war that she couldn't report.

"It's not a question of couldn't do it, it's a question of tone," Amanpour said. "It's a question of being rigorous. It's really a question of really asking the questions. All of the entire body politic in my view, whether it's the administration, the intelligence, the journalists, whoever, did not ask enough questions, for instance, about weapons of mass destruction. I mean, it looks like this was disinformation at the highest levels."

Clarke called the disinformation charge "categorically untrue" and added, "In my experience, a little over two years at the Pentagon, I never saw them (the media) holding back. I saw them reporting the good, the bad and the in between."

Fox News spokeswoman Irena Briganti said of Amanpour's comments: "Given the choice, it's better to be viewed as a foot soldier for Bush than a spokeswoman for al-Qaeda."

CNN had no comment.

Miami Herald' gets makeover

The Miami Herald unveils a new look today that editor Tom Fiedler says is intended to answer the questions: "If we were starting over in 2003, what kind of newspaper would we be, who would be reading us, how could we better serve those readers and what would the paper look like?"

It's the first comprehensive overhaul of the Knight Ridder-owned paper in three decades, timed to coincide with the paper's 100th year.

"We're trying to rethink newspapering, just as USA TODAY did 20 years ago," Fiedler says.

Gone are the days when Miami was largely defined a haven for retirees. In the past few decades, the area has drawn a wide variety of people of different ages, walks of life and ethnicity. The growing Latino population prompted the 1998 launch of a Spanish version of the broadsheet El Neuvo Herald. But the layout and coverage in both papers has remained essentially unchanged from years ago.

It was time for something new.

"In many ways, this community accelerated far ahead of where the newspaper was," Fiedler says. "We put out a terrific paper for 1990, and it had great journalism, but in many ways it was still operating on a concept of a community that was rapidly disappearing 20 years ago."

Today's changes include a daily nod to a fast-paced world where readers are used to quick bites of news from the Internet.

It's a synopsis of the paper's contents called "The 5-Minute Herald" and it is designed for the working parent who, rushed for time in the morning, "can get a real overview of what's in the paper that day but who might have tucked away a story they'd like to read at lunch or after work," Fiedler says. Plus, he says, "we want to make sure young people are seeing their lives in their paper."

The features section will now be in a magazine format and will have a different theme each day, starting today with people, followed Tuesday by health, then style, food and weekend.

Although Fiedler is touting paper's new look, one thing that isn't going to change, he says, is the quality of the reporting. "There's not going to be any dumbing down of the paper."

Who is Amanpour? ... our.christiane.html

Christiane Amanpour is CNN’s chief international correspondent based in New York. Amanpour has reported on most crises from the world’s many news hotspots, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, Somalia, Rwanda and the Balkans.

Her assignments have ranged from exclusive interviews with world leaders to reporting on the human consequences of natural disasters or covering events from the heart of war zones. She has received wide acclaim and numerous awards for her work, particularly for her extensive coverage of conflicts in the Balkans, Africa and the Middle East.

Amanpour’s recent work has focused on the production of a series of highly acclaimed long-form programs that have aired across the CNN networks. In 2007 she presented a six-hour series on the world’s three leading monotheistic religions and their defenders, ‘God’s Warriors’, and an in-depth examination of the growing Islamic unrest in the UK in ‘The War Within’. In 2006 Amanpour presented two outstanding award-winning documentaries, ‘Where Have All The Parents Gone?’ a powerful film examining the plight of the more than one million children orphaned to AIDS in Kenya and a two-hour exploration of the life of the world’s most wanted terrorist, ‘In the Footsteps of Bin Laden’.

In addition Amanpour remains at the center of the news agenda and her reporting continues to be a corner stone of CNN’s coverage of major international news events. In the last few years Amanpour has been involved in every major news story that CNN has covered. This has included conflict in the Middle East, the natural disasters of Tsunami-hit Sri Lanka and the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, as well as growing global terrorism, including the London tube bombings of July 2005 and the Madrid railway bombings of 2004, riots in France and the first democratic elections in Iraq. She has also traveled to Sudan to cover the crisis in Darfur where her coverage included an exclusive interview with Sudanese President al-Bashir.

Throughout her career Amanpour has succeeded in securing a number of high profile and exclusive interviews with world leaders for CNN. In the Middle East these interviews read like a ‘Who’s Who?’ of the region’s leaders. Just as Iran’s nuclear crisis was developing, Amanpour became the first and only journalist to interview Iran’s newly-elected president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. She was also granted a world exclusive with Syrian President Bashar el Assad in 2005 on the UN investigation into Syria’s involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri. During a state visit to Washington in 2003, Amanpour interviewed Mahmoud Abbas in his capacity as the first Palestinian Prime Minister and she was also granted the first ever interview with Jordan’s new monarch, King Abdullah, in May 1999, having been the last journalist to interview the King’s father, the long-reigning King Hussein, only days before his death. Other interviews of note include Chairman Arafat and Ehud Barak when he was the Israeli Prime Minister during the heightened Middle East peace negotiations in 2000 and with Iranian-reformist President Khatami in December 1997.

The line-up is equally impressive elsewhere. She interviewed former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, with whom she secured the first interview after September 11 – when she also exclusively interviewed former French President Jacques Chirac and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. She was also granted an exclusive with Chirac on the eve of the 2003 conflict in Iraq after France had refused a UN vote and with French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin in the aftermath of the 2005 riots in France. In November 1999, Amanpour marked the 10th anniversary of the fall of communism with an interview with former Russian premier, Mikhail Gorbachev.

Amanpour is widely acclaimed for her coverage of the war in the Balkans where she spent years on this dangerous assignment, bringing the Bosnian tragedy to the world’s attention. No international network correspondent reported as continuously from this ethnically torn region. Amanpour subsequently covered the Milosevic war crime trials in The Hague in 2001 and 2002 and returned to the region in 2005 to mark the 10th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre.

It was in 1989 and 1990 that Amanpour first began to earn her reputation as a world-class correspondent as she reported on the dramatic changes occurring in central Europe. This was followed by reporting assignments to cover the Gulf War, from Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1990 to the U.S. bombing of Baghdad and the Kurdish refugee crisis on the Iran/Iraq border that persisted after the cease-fire. She also covered the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991 and subsequent war in Tbilisi. In December 1992, Amanpour briefly left the former Yugoslavia to report live from the shores of Mogadishu, Somalia, as U.S. troops launched Operation: Restore Hope.

Amanpour has received many prestigious awards in recognition of for her reporting on major world stories. For her reporting from the Balkans, Amanpour received a News and Documentary Emmy, two George Foster Peabody Awards, two George Polk Awards, a Courage in Journalism Award, a Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival Gold Award and the Livingston Award for Young Journalists. She was also named 1994 Woman of the Year by the New York Chapter of Women in Cable and Telecommunications, and she helped the CNN news network win a duPont Award for its coverage of Bosnia and a Golden CableACE for its Gulf War coverage.

Amanpour’s 1991 Gulf War reporting also received the Breakthrough Award from Women, Men and Media. Her contribution to the 1985 four-week series, ‘Iran: In the Name of God’, helped CNN earn its first duPont award.

In total Amanpour has won nine Emmy awards, including one for her documentary ‘Struggle for Islam’; the 2002 Edward R. Murrow Award for Distinguished Achievement in Broadcast Journalism; the Sigma Chi Award (SDX) for her reports from Goma, Zaire; a George Polk Award for her work on the CNN International special ‘Battle for Afghanistan’ in 1997; and the Nymphe d’Honneur at the Monte Carlo Television Festival in 1997, to name but a few.

Her documentary ‘In the Footsteps of Bin Laden’ won the Sigma Delta Chi award given by the Society of Professional Journalists in the USA while ‘Where have all the Parents Gone?’ has been recognized with a POP Award (Cable Positive for HIV/AIDS coverage). Amanpour was also recently named a Fellow of the Society of Professional Journalists, an honor which recognizes significant contributions to journalism. She has also been bestowed with a number of honorary degrees from America’s prestigious universities.

In 2007 she was recognized in the birthday honors list of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with a highly prestigious CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the UK.

Amanpour began her CNN career in 1983 as an assistant on the network’s international assignment desk in Atlanta. She has since worked in CNN’s London, New York, Paris and Frankfurt bureaus.

While at college, Amanpour worked at WJAR-TV, Providence, R.I., as an electronic graphics designer. From 1981 to 1982, she also gained work experience as a reporter, anchor and producer for WBRU-Radio, in Providence, USA.

Amanpour graduated summa cum laude from the University of Rhode Island with a bachelor of arts in journalism.
