Cutter, Madden Join CNN as Political Contributors
                Democratic strategist Stephanie Cutter and Republican strategist Kevin Madden will join CNN as political commentators, it was announced today by CNN Washington bureau chief and senior vice president Sam Feist. The veteran communications consultants will add their expert analysis to the network’s roster of voices and will appear across the network’s programming including New Day, the morning show scheduled to launch June 17.
                “I’ve worked with CNN for many years in the White House, on campaigns and throughout government,” said Cutter. “They are the best in the business, and I’m thrilled to be joining the CNN team.”
                “This is such an exciting time in the national conversation about the direction of our country, with so many Americans looking to CNN for an informed perspective of today’s political debates,” said Madden. “I’m looking forward to bringing my experience of working on national campaigns and Capitol Hill to CNN’s coverage of this national conversation.”
                Cutter is a partner at Precision Strategies, a strategic consulting firm launched earlier this month with three veterans from the Obama 2012 campaign team. Cutter served most recently as the deputy campaign manager for President Obama’s re-election campaign, having joined Obama’s 2008 campaign as Michelle Obama’s chief of staff and senior adviser to then Senator Obama.  Before joining the campaign, Cutter served in the White House as Assistant to the President and Deputy Senior Adviser, and was previously counselor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. Cutter is also a veteran of Capitol Hill, having worked as a senior adviser to Majority Leader Reid and Senator Edward M. Kennedy.  She is a native of Massachusetts and a graduate of Smith College and Georgetown University Law Center.  
Madden is the executive vice president of public affairs at JDA Frontline in Washington, D.C. Previously, he was a managing director for The Glover Park Group. Madden served as adviser for the Republican National Committee and Gov. Romney’s presidential campaign during the 2012 election. He also served as national press secretary and senior communications strategist for Romney’s 2008 presidential bid. Prior to joining Romney’s campaign, Madden was press secretary to then-House Majority Leader Boehner. He is a native of New York and a graduate of State University of New York at Cortland.

From HBO Documentaries, Manhunt, is a riveting tale of espionage as revealed by the real insiders who led the CIA’s secret war against Osama bin Laden.  This documentary is based upon CNN terrorism analyst Peter Bergen’s bestselling book, Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad (2012).



beyond the manhunts: How to stop terror – a fareed zakaria gps special

CNN’s and TIME’s Fareed Zakaria hosts an in-depth look into America’s secret wars on terrorists in the homeland and abroad.  Zakaria also speaks with those closest to the hunt for 9/11 terrorist Osama bin Laden and others about how U.S. intelligence agencies have slowly evolved to take on some activities associated with the U.S. Military and the changing role of women in America’s intelligence services.  Manhunt author and national security analyst Peter Bergen, former National Security Agency director Michael Hayden, The New York Times journalist Mark Mazzetti, former CIA director and U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, former FBI agent Ali Soufan, and former CIA officers Nada Bakos, Robert Grenier, and Cindy Storer contribute.



Storm Hunters: In the Path of Disaster – An Anderson Cooper Special Report

CNN rides along for an in-depth look at the dangerous yet important role played by storm chasers in tracking the pathways of powerful storms.  Key chasers describe how they followed the deadly Oklahoma tornadoes this week and tried to provide warnings and position information to meteorologists and disaster management officials about the strength of the twisters and the locations imperiled by the outbreak of storms in ‘Tornado Alley.’

Anderson Cooper Special Report: Back to Boston – Moments of Impact
The images of the unforgettable tragedy at April’s Boston Marathon are burned in memory…This Anderson Cooper Special Report looks at the iconic still photographs that vividly capture the unexplainable – images that capture both the horror and the heroism of the event.  CNN’s Randi Kaye interviews the photographers who filmed the most memorable images and the people whose stories they immortalized. 

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (MOROCCO/TANGIER)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain explores the “Interzone,” where artists like Burroughs, Bowles, and the Rolling Stones sought escape from Western moral prohibitions and the possibilities of great empty spaces.  His quest is to find out if that “anything goes” attitude still exists.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (CANADA)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain travels to remote areas within the province of Quebec where he samples local delicacies and explores ice fishing and beaver hunting.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (Libya)
CNN host Anthony Bourdain explores Libyan hip-hop, Italian restaurants, tribal allegiances and post-war uncertainty in Libya.  Bourdain looks at the country through personal stories, food – and the music – of anti-Qaddafi rapper ex-patriots who returned to fight.

there’s Something wrong with Aunt Diane
From HBO Documentaries, There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane, reveals previously unknown information about the notorious 2009 car accident that ended the lives of eight people, including four young children. Following the crash, the driver, Diane Schuler – wife, mother, and cable TV executive – was portrayed as a reckless drunk and overextended mother by some, and as a model wife, friend and worker by others.  The documentary recounts the day with a minute-by-minute retelling, and includes interviews with Schuler’s family, friends, co-workers, eyewitnesses, first responders, investigators, and medical and psychiatric experts.  Also drawing upon surveillance footage, family photos, news clips, and expert testimony, the film seeks to explain how things could have gone so terribly wrong on New York’s Taconic State Parkway on July 26, 2009.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN: Parts Unknown (colombia)
The public face of Colombia has changed immensely over the past 10 years and is still changing for the better.  Anthony Bourdain explores several regions of the country from the mountains down to the Caribbean coast to the coca leaf growing inlands formerly controlled by drug cartels.
