During a discussion on CNN about the situation in Ukraine, Christiane Amanpour went after Wolf Blitzer for making what Amanpour thought was a blanket statement:

CNN hosts Christiane Amanpour and Wolf Blitzer sparred with one another on Monday after Blitzer quoted a Russian official who said pro-European Ukrainians are anti-Semites and fascists.

“You have to be really careful by putting that across as a fact,” Amanpour said after Blitzer quoted Vitaly Churkin, the Russian Ambassador to the U.N. Security Council who said earlier today that “fascists and anti-Semites” were to blame for the unrest in Ukraine.

“That’s what Vitaly Churkin said,” Blitzer countered.

We hope Blitzer enjoyed his lecture in responsible reporting from the “journalist” who referred to Raul Castro as a “freedom fighter.”


Video of the Amanpour dressing down Blitzer:

The look on Blitzer’s face said it all:


We haven’t seen Blitzer looking that defeated since his appearance on Celebrity Jeopardy.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    CNN has been putting nonsense across as fact for years, where was this lady to call them out on it before?

    • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

      She was putting out her own brand of nonsense on ABC.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Her history of blanket statements and wild eyed assertions is just as bad… They’re the least intellectually honest “journalists” at CNN.. now that Piers “Musket” Morgan was sent to his room..

      Throw them some boxing gloves and sell tickets…

      and hope for a tie by mutual knockout…

      My money though is on the girl, Wolf is hardly as manly as his name.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      She’s been one of the prayers of misinformation. The wholev network distributes more crap then a manure spreader.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    “We haven’t seen Blitzer looking that defeated since his appearance on Celebrity Jeopardy.”

    Was his question about the Constitution?

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      or anything out of a 5th grade civics textbook…

      Wolf goes by two modes of operation..

      Republican president-Complete skepticism, snarky remarks, accusations of wrong doing based on rumors, and complete contempt for administration officials..

      Democrat president, drooling wild eyed adoration,.. silly little compliments on his intelligence and tastes,.. accusations that the opposition party is to blame for ANYTHING wrong during this administration,.. uber respect and asskissing for any administration official..

      You don’t need crystal balls to figure out which party has his blind obedience.. complete adoration,.. he knee jerk defends anything they do.. and knee jerk attacks any accuser of being too partisan.

      Whistle blowers during an R administration are heroes defending the people

      Whistle blowers during a D administration are petty rats back stabbing the integrity of “hard working” public officials..

      Just imagine Wolf defending the IRS during Bush’s years if they had targeted liberals…

      Imagine ANY “journalist” not in a foaming outrage at the abuse of power, and refusal to investigate seriously..

      Pravda during the Soviet era had more freedom of thought and integrity than these idiot shills in the US MSM… they couldn’t be more obviously in rah rah cheerleader mode for the democrat party if they painted their faces blue and wore DNC T-shirts..

      bad enough.. but when they deliberately cover up scandals where crimes are committed, they are as treasonous as the public officials hunting down Americans for being conservative… and harassing them for years..

    I haven’t played the videos yet . . but THE LOOK on Wolf’s face . . HAHAHAHA!

  • Al’s Annoyed Grandpa

    Dear Robert Luna,

    What does CNN have that Fox News needs or wants?


    The Ratings

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      I know something Fox has that CNN desperately needs.

      Megyn Kelly

      • journogal

        And Fox’s ratings…

      • supplyguy

        Don’t we all?

        • audieho

          Something tells me she’s not quite Robert Luna’s type.

    • journogal

      Extra studio space, perhaps?

  • notenoughtime

    CNN – Crappy News Network.

  • Perry

    Amanpour is a leftist hack. I remember her telling other members of the media that it was their fault they LET Bush get elected.

    • Zathras11 @B5

      Amanpour is an Iranian leftist hack.

  • KCallahan

    I love it when liberals go at each other. Blizter and Amanpour are two of a kind and it is entertaining to see them going at each other. Gosh it has been so long since I’ve seen Amanpour since I never watch CNN, I didn’t recognize her. Looks like CNN has put some lipstick on that pig to make her presentable. She usually goes around in khakis in war zones trying to convince Americans that Palestinians are the good guys.

  • ceemack

    When you’re getting justifiably schooled by someone who’s as biased and factually challenged as Christiane Amanpour, it’s time to think about another line of work.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      It wasn’t justified, not in the video clip that I saw (the one on Twitchy). Blitzer stated that he was quoting the Russian before this woman jumped in on him. She started employing ludicrous strawmen too :(

  • BoscoBolt
    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      With a name like Wolf Blitzer, you need cojones the size of grapefruit. Or else.

      • Steven Sweeney

        Good old blitzer..a wolf in sheeple’s clothing…:)

  • Maxx

    As a result of this CNN tirade, 3,432 stranded travelers waiting for their flights were mildly amused.

    Otherwise, the rest of the nation was watching “The Five.”

    • LegalizeShemp

      Don’t forget 432 comatose people in hospital beds who were unable to change the channel, their reaction fell short of amused.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      Unfortunately I know of too many businesses that run CNN on their TVs in public areas as CNN is deemed to be “professional”.

      All I know is that when I’m stuck at businesses running CNN I suddenly appreciate the Dr. Oz and Ellen that I’m stuck watching at my car dealership….

      • Michael Anderson (WB)

        We have four TV’s in the lunch room at work. On one wall the TV on the left is tuned to MSNBC and the TV on the right is tuned to Fox News.

  • Chip

    CNN is crumbling…. numbers way down…… aging “pundits” acting like children….. .. it’s just a matter of time…..

  • andycanuck

    Can we supply arms to both sides at CNN? BTW, Amanpour said there would be no invasion.

  • MeNotKnow

    The Thursday prior, Blitzer asked her, “What, if anything, would stop Vlatimir Putin from getting involved.” She responded by saying, “There doesn’t seem to be any notion that he is actually going to do so.” Then less than a day later, Putin did get involved. Now she is manipulating his words when his point in the first place was to point out a controversial statement.

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    Christianne Amanpour knows that in a battle of wits — Wolf Blitzer is unarmed.

  • Jack Deth

    I love it when the pompous left devour their own. Even if those noshing on each other are in the very shallow end of the gene pool!

  • alanstorm

    Two lefties arguing? What’s at issue – who is the most wrong?

  • SansMercy

    I see she still wears big ass shoulder pads. Not helpful. And Wolf needs them more than she.

  • supplyguy

    If two lefty journalists fight does anyone really care?
    I’m going to come up w/ a joke about this. Not sure what the punch line will be, but it’s going to start off “So two hacks walk into a bar…”

  • BorderLine Guy

    What? Wolf started the point by saying it came from Churkin, Amanpour missed it and decided to be an ass.

  • Amanda Davis

    Yes, anti-Semites generally rush to defend their brethren. If Amanpour ever gets cut from CNN, Al Jazeera will snatch her up in a heartbeat…. They may view women as sub-human, but they recognize their value as propaganda disseminators.

    • 0meg4m4n

      Ukraine’s situation has nothing to do with fascist anti-semites. It’s a straight Obama State Department fail. Those guys in Ukraine protesting? Most of them are American and Israeli.

      • Amanda Davis

        My comment was less about the specifics in the Ukraine (of which I am not fully informed) and more about Amanpour and her track record with Israel, Jews and anti-semetism in general.

  • H50 ✓RAT

    Grandma makes that face right before she craps her diaper.
    Who to root for on this one? Its hard to take sides when asshats collide.

  • Amanda Davis

    Why are you deleting all of my comments Twitchy?

    • WilliamAmos

      I don’t see any deleted from you in our deleted section ?

      • $9844146

        Hi William, you deserve credit for responding. I had a completely harmless post on WND moderated and asked several times, why? No response. Appreciate you responding to your readers.

        • WilliamAmos

          I have no say on what happens on WND. Each site has it’s own moderators. I work for Twitchy not DISQUS.

          • $9844146

            I understand each site has it’s own mods, I’m just thanking you for responding to the readers, as opposed to the mods on other sites.

      • Amanda Davis

        Yes, thank you for your response. I made a comment about Amanpour being anti-semetic…when I posted it was flagged as awaiting moderation. Disqus said that I had been blocked from posting on this site, so I assumed it was a glitch and tried to post the same type of comment again. It too was flagged. Just curious!

        Edit to say: My comment is showing up! Is there some reason that certain comments have to wait to be moderated?

        • WilliamAmos

          Some times new users get moderated because they don’t have enough approved posts. That should change after a few have been approved.

  • Guest

    Amanpour is an anti-Semite herself. If she ever gets dropped by CNN, Al-Jazeera will snatch her up in a heartbeat.

  • moot

    leftists like to think they are the “smart” ones who see world conflicts differently because you see it is just too simplistic for Putin, Morsi, Quaddafi et al to be simply evil. Painting yourself as someone that can sense Jewish conspiracies is totes more high brow than your run of the mill conservative who sees things in all cowboys and indians.

  • arttie

    If 2 CNN journalists(?) start bi####g at each other in the forest and no one is there to listen, do they make a sound?

    Oh please. What a drama queen. Didn’t she say a couple of days ago that Russia will not invade the Ukraine?

  • Art_Fold

    Wolf looks like he’s about to cry.

    CNN -Commie Nincompoop Network

  • dwok

    There is evidence that a couple of George Soros organizations were in the Ukraine stirring the pot, so it seems as though the Russian Ambassador is telling the truth.

  • West Covina

    CNN is purely propaganda. No actual Russian interviews, just third source information hearsay about Russia. #Propaganda

  • kentercat

    Well, Obama didn’t do anything to stop it, and she helped get him elected, so technically, yes, fascists and anti-semites are responsible for the issues with Ukraine.

  • http://macsen573.wix.com/overdrive Macsen Overdrive

    Can’t say I’m surprised by Blitzer buying Russia’s propaganda.

  • DrSamHerman

    Like arguing which end of the turd is clean.

  • Richard Jefferies

    Ah, it’s the old “Zionists” defense is it?

    Is is just me or is Christiane’s face on the fast track to Helen Thomas-ville?

    • Oysteria

      Holy cow! I was just thinking the very same thing.

  • Prospector


  • Maryland_Malcontent

    I must have missed something. Blitzer clearly quoted the Russian and so the way I’m seeing it, this woman was dead wrong to jump on him.

    “At fault for all of this are what he called fascists and anti-semites…”

    Blitzer didn’t “[put] that across as a fact.” Please point out what I’m missing as my take from this is that this woman made a fool out of herself.

    • beebop1952

      It felt like she was warning against the dangers of “playing telephone” with political OPINION being mistaken for factual …. duh … did someone hit the side of her head with a 2 x 4?

  • blg_wv

    “If he said it, it must be true:
    What a dumbfounded statement from a dimwit.
    Like he’d believe anything that comes out of Dingy’s mouth . . .

  • audieho

    I’m not sure what to think at this point. Personally witnessed her lying in the Balkans to push a pro-Muslim agenda and now berating a colleague for pushing an agenda? I’m really perplexed.

    • Isahiah62

      my favorite Amanpoor moment- confronted with reality she is baffled http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=08c_1296837688

      • audieho

        That. Was. Awesome. I don’t watch ABC at all so that is honestly the first time I have seen that clip. I wish everyone dealt with CNN in that manner.

  • The Beech Bums

    One of the most dangerous misconceptions of democracy is the notion that future powers should be determined by today’s fleeting majority.

  • PatriotRG

    Its so funny when two pathetic leftists fight – its like watching two chickens peck each other. Yes the Russians offcource being experts in anti semetism can quickly spot a fellow anti semite – and the Russians know full well the PC leftis western press will focuss on this bit of nonsense like the fools they are as opposed to the real story.

  • robert anthony

    Luckily, he didn’t ‘deny climate change’ or he would have been gunned down on the spot.

  • robert anthony

    ‘Blanket statements’ of slander are reserved for use on ‘citizens reverent of liberty’.

  • coneil5150

    OBVIOUSLY someone didn’t get their talking points from the White House !
    It’s hard to run a news room when all the actors don’t have their scripts.

  • Joel A. Edge

    The Russians should just float the idea that they’re coming to the defense of gay rights in the Ukraine. Heads would explode across the US media.

  • http://www.sierrapundit.com/ John Reece

    A Putin government spokesman is flinging fascist/anti-Semite accusations!? Sounds like a case of psychological projection.

    • Arkuy The Great

      Not exactly. Before WWII Ukraine had been the location of the worst anti-Jewish atrocities of the 20th Century. Over 100,000 had been killed in the Pogroms from 1880-1939. The accusation fits the historical patterns of that country.

  • $76426467

    Was Ananpour high on something or deaf?

  • Terry

    i wish she’d be so adamant in defending conservatives as ‘not all’ whatever-insert slur of your choice, eg racist, fascist, homophobic, anti women, etc.

  • spaceycakes

    OF COURSE Amanpour would be ticked off about the use of ‘anti-Semite’…she’s the queen of anti-Semites.

  • Paul Fries

    Oh, come on now… CNN hasn’t been bothered to report on facts before, why bother starting now? Journolistic integrity has been an alien concept to them since 1992.

  • DANEgerus

    Wolf should make Christiane Amanpour(D-IRAN) feel at HOME with a quick slap to her face and by putting a bag over her head… #Caring

    What a joke, since when are these idiot worried about putting out misinformation? I guess they must not consider no investigation, misinformation!

  • regmgr

    Gee even leftist can’t get along with one another. Looks like CNN is exploding from within. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of socialists.
