So that makes her totally less worthwhile as a human being, right?
I’m pretty sure TMZ thinks so, based on the offensively disrespectful “news update” they titled “Christiane Amanpour — I Was Attacked in Egypt, Too!!“
It’s perfectly legitimate journalism (though, for the record, I do not actually expect “journalism” to occur at TMZ) to make one of the most respected and accomplished international correspondents of our time come across like your whiny little sister who doesn’t understand why her Crayola scribble isn’t hanging on the fridge next to your Yale acceptance letter.
The contempt radiates off the first sentence:
“Not to be outdone by Anderson Cooper, ABC News reporter Christiane Amanpour just filed a report claiming she too was attacked by an angry mob in Egypt.”
Silly Christiane. Isn’t it cute how she thinks she matters? Look how she got harassed, too! Just like the real reporters!
That’s nice. Now let’s go see if Anderson’s posted anything to TwitPic!
Also, it’s an awfully funny coincidence that Time Warner owns both TMZ and CNN–the network that brings us the demigod Anderson Cooper.
