Hey everyone. Tonight I'm going to take Promoting to the "Nth Degree". Fans of CNN have known for the last few months that CNN along with Christiane Amanpour would be embarking on a world wide investigation on world religions in a documentary called God Warriors.
**TV Guide.com interviewed Christiane. My favourite snippet of the interview
TVGuide.com: Cable news has changed a lot over the last 15 years, but you’re still able to go out and do serious long-form pieces. Who drives that? Do you have to push to get them done? When we think of cable news, we’re not thinking about this kind of material anymore.
Christiane Amanpour: I agree that it has changed an awful lot since Ted Turner created it. I think there is something to be said for CNN that in this completely changed environment we continue to do these kinds of reports. I particularly like doing this, as you can imagine. I’m not the Paris Hilton/Anna Nicole Smith kind of reporter. I really like these meaty issues, because I’m convinced that this is what people want to know about. Everyone who I talk to asks me what I’m working on, and I tell them religion — and they tell me it’s something on their minds right now.
