Happy Thanksgiving everyone. All Things CNN has much to give thanks for, we hope you do too. Doesn't it look like the CNN Thanksgiving feast was a huge success? :)
Don't forget that once the dishes are done and the leftovers stored away it will be time to settle down in your easy chair and tune the telly into CNN for their All -Star Heroes Tribute. The event is hosted by Anderson Cooper and features Alicia Keys and John Legend. Other celebrities slated to appear include Cameron Diaz, Meg Ryan, Forest Whitaker, Salma Hayek, Lucy Liu, Terrence Howard, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale and Selena Gomez. Also People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive, Hugh Jackman, will present their ‘Heroes Among Us’ award. CNN Heroes airs at 9 PM Eastern on Thanksgiving night.
So what's next to look forward to on CNN? On Thursday, December 4th at 9 PM Eastern Christiana Amanpour's latest special 'Scream Bloody Murder' premiers. It gives the viewer a closer look at the recurring nightmare of genocide, from ethnic slaughters in Armenia, to the Holocaust, to systematic terror and violence in Cambodia, Rwanda, Iraq and Darfur. Amanpour reveals the largely unknown struggles of the heroes who witnessed evil – and “screamed bloody murder” in hopes that the international community would help end the slaughter.
By exposing viewers to the suffering and injustice in the World there is hope we can initiate change. Kudos to CNN and to Christiane Amanpour for tackling this difficult subject. ~Phebe
