The Biz: Christiane Amanpour Goes Back to the Beginning

Christiane Amanpour

The sight of Christiane Amanpour reporting from conflict zones in the Middle East is one of the most familiar images in television news. So it will be a real change of pace for viewers when she's seen as a relaxed traveler — and mother — in Back to the Beginning, a two-part special airing Dec. 21 and 28 (9/8c, ABC). Amanpour and her son Darius hit the road earlier this year to explore the ancient sites depicted in "the oldest stories ever told," as she puts it. They take an archeological tour through Turkey and the Middle East to examine the sites of biblical tales that unite rather than divide the followers of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Amanpour talked to The Biz about the special and her new boss at CNN, Jeff Zucker.

TV News Relies on Cell Phones, Twitter to Evade Iranian Censorship

Jim Sciutto

TV Networks covering the Iranian protests are smuggling news out of the country with cell phones, amateur video, and social networks — the same tools used by protestors still packing the country's streets.

"If this happened 10 years ago you wouldn't have the video phones, or even five years ago you wouldn't have sites like Twitter, or YouTube wouldn't be as ubiquitous," Jim Sciutto, ABC News' senior foreign correspondent, told "That's frustrating for these kinds of governments because they would love to be able, and I think they're used to, being able to shut this kind of thing down." read more

May 15, 2007: The Goodbye Girls

It’s really over. As hard as it is to write those words, I actually feel like I am able to let go. I had a lot of help, actually. It took a village. Every single person in the wonderfully quirky Stars Hollow made it easier to say goodbye to Rory as she left her tiny town for wide-open America. And it was bittersweet.Who else but Luke would gather everyone to plan a huge last-minute surprise party for Rory in the town square? And when the forecast (aka Babette’s swollen ankles) called for rain, he collected tarps and raincoats to sew together a tent. Sure enough, it was pouring on celebration day when Lorelai and Rory pulled up in their Jeep as all of Stars Hollow huddled beneath that tent. I loved that panning shot of the happy faces that we’ve gotten to know over the past seven years: Zack, Liz, Kirk, Lane, Michel, Lulu, Brian, Gypsy, Miss Patty, Babette, Morey, Taylor, Jackson, Sookie and a wide-grinning Luke all clapping and cheering for Rory. “I can’t be... read more
