Christiane Amanpour, (born January 12, 1958, London, England) is a British journalist who, as a correspondent for the Cable News Network (CNN), was one of the leading war correspondents of the mainstream media. She later hosted the ABC news program This Week in 2010–11.
Her father, Mahmoud Amanpour, is a Muslim from Iran; her mother, Patricia Hill, is a Christian from England. She is fluent in English and Farsi.
After completing the larger part of her elementary education in Iran, she was sent by her parents to boarding school in England when she was 11. Amanpour attended Holy Cross Convent, an all-girls school located in Buckinghamshire, and then, starting at age 16, New Hall School, in Chelmsford, Essex. Christiane and her family returned to England not long after the fall of the Shah. The family ultimately remained in England, finding it difficult to return to Iran.
In 1996 she told an audience of journalists that neutrality was not acceptable in places such as Bosnia, because when "you are neutral, you can become an accomplice."
In June 2016, Christiane Amanpour interviewed British MEP Daniel Hannan of the Brexit campaign, and a "fiery exchange" between Hannan and the CNN anchor followed in which Hannan repeatedly warded off Amanpour's attempts to belittle the Brexit supporters as "racists".
- Christiane Amanpour, in an effort to diminish the Goliath global menace of Islamists massacring in the name of Allah, had skewed facts in crafting her narration, appropriately described: 'poisonously biased.' At CNN and Christiane Amanpour equate Jewish and Christian religious fervency with that of Muslims endorsing 'martyrdom' or suicide-killing. (2007). In order to try so hard to achieve her wrong comparisons drive, she uttered falsehood and weird exaggeration on "settlers."
- In 2020, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour had to apologize for equating President Donald Trump’s tenure to horrific Kristallnacht.
- Presenting herself as some kind of an "expert" supposedly on the Middle East conflict, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour had revealed her utter ignorance in placing the major famous city of Haifa in the "west bank" (2019). Excerbetaing her twisted propaganda campaign.
- Days after her Hitlerist Palestinian friend's award revoked, Amanpour tried to lump "Palestinians" with blacks and others.
- As CNN’s top anchor, Christiane Amanpour issued a public apology on her show on Monday May 22, 2023, for calling in April the murders of an Israeli mother and her daughters a “shootout,” following a 10-day campaign by HonestReporting that made waves around the world. “On April 10, I referred to the murders of an Israeli family: Lucy, Maia and Rina Dee, the wife and daughters of Rabbi Leo Dee,” Amanpour said. “I misspoke and said they were killed in a ‘shootout’ instead of a shooting. I have written to Rabbi Leo Dee to apologize and make sure that he knows that we apologize for any further pain that may have caused him.”
However, Dee announces suit against CNN for Amanpour fake 'shootout' comments on innocent victims of brutal "Palestinian" intentional murderers, says he rejected Christiane Amanpour's email apology. Stating: "The fact that they said they were killed, and not brutally murdered by evil Palestinian terrorists funded by Iran is the typical CNN-ism, where they basically try like this comparison between the victim and the terrorist."
A rushed broader applogy came after many angry calls were recorded against Amanpour's biased and offensive treatment of the heinous murder case and its presentation as a shootout between two parties, when in fact it was a murderous attack in which the terrorist shot the members of the Dee family and even returned to confirm the death.
Only after that suit announcement: "Less than 24 hours after Rabbi Leo Dee announced, at the memorial lecture for.. Yoav Boteach, his plans to sue @CNN for $1.3 billion for defaming and desecrating the memory of his martyred wife and two daughters, CNN, and one of its most distinguished anchors, Christiane Amanpour, was forced to capitulate and retract their nauseating lie about how they were murdered." Stating she will apologize on air.

Leo Dee announces intention to sue CNN for 'shootout' comments, says he rejected Christiane Amanpour's email apology.
Leo Dee, who lost his wife and two of his daughters in a terror attack, has announced that he will sue CNN for comments claiming they were "killed in a shootout."
Speaking to i24NEWS, Dee said, "The fact that they said they were killed, and not brutally murdered by evil Palestinian terrorists funded by Iran is the typical CNN-ism, where they basically try like this comparison between the victim and the terrorist."
"Christiane Amanpour wrote me a brief email apologizing for any misunderstanding that might've been caused by the fact that she called it 'killing by a shootout,'" he added. "Of course, it's not worth the paper it's printed on, because when you make a statement in front of a hundred million people on prime time television and then you apologize in an email to a single person, it has one one-hundred-millionth of the impact."
Dee also told i24NEWS about his "interesting" conversation with the head of CNN's Jerusalem bureau, noting that, "It did make me wonder the level of humanity."
As of this writing, CNN had not yet replied to i24NEWS' request for comment.
In her comments, CNN host Christiane Amanpour claimed, "The mother and two Israel-British sisters – they were killed in a shootout," seemingly implying that the victims of terror were also shooting.
In her email apologizing to Dee, Amanpour also expressed her condolences, saying that there "was no intention" on her part.
Dee responded with a long email saying that he does not accept her apology, since she spread false information to millions of people, and demanded that she issue a public apology.Amanpour later apologized publicly, saying, "On April 10, I referred to the murders of an Israeli family: Lucy, Maia and Rina Dee, the wife and daughters of Rabbi Leo Dee. I misspoke and said they were killed in a ‘shootout’ instead of a shooting. I have written to Rabbi Leo Dee to apologize and make sure that he knows that we apologize for any further pain that may have caused him."

CNN rushed to respond to the case and correct the situation after many angry calls were registered against Amanpour's biased and offensive treatment of the heinous murder case and its presentation as a shootout between two parties, when in fact it was a murderous attack in which the terrorist shot the members of the Dee family and even returned to confirm the death.

"Less than 24 hours after Rabbi Leo Dee announced, at the memorial lecture for my father Yoav Boteach, his plans to sue @CNN for $1.3 billion for defaming and desecrating the memory of his martyred wife and two daughters, CNN, and one of its most distinguished anchors, Christiane Amanpour, was forced to capitulate and retracr their nauseating lie about how they were murdered. The lesson here is that the Jewish community must never again allow the defamation of its good name and character. Let all our enemies know that this is just the first of many actions we will be taking to ensure that the Jewish people and the State of Israel will never again defamed. Antisemites beware!"
