Ladies Night

I came across an online article Mark Schwed of the Palm Beach Post recently did an article on some of the major female anchors in cable news. Included in the article were Heidi Collins, Kiran Chetry, Erica Hill, Robin Meade and Christi Paul as well as other female anchor from other cable stations. To read about all the ladies, click here. I enjoyed it but I must say I was a little disappointed that Kyra Phillips was not included.

At the end of last year I read an article about 2007 being the deadliest year for journalist. It caught my eye because I am such a huge follower of the news (You have to be when you blog). Well I came across an email about Christiane Amanpour and this very topic. The following is part of the article that was accompanying the email.

Attacks on the Press, our annual worldwide survey, will have an international release in various cities on Monday, February 4. This year’s edition includes analyses of emerging trends as reported by our program coordinators and researchers. Bob Dietz explores the myriad of press freedom issues confronting China as it gears up for the 2008 summer Olympics in Beijing. Carlos LaurĂ­a examines how government censors television in Venezuela. Joel Campagna investigates a creeping trend in the Middle East, where governments quietly manipulate press laws. Nina Ognianova explores how the Kremlin’s tactics to undermine press freedom are influencing other parts of the region. And Tom Rhodes explores the downturn of press freedom in many new African democracies.

The book features a preface from CNN’s Christiane Amanpour as well as an introduction from Joel Simon. Attacks on the Press in 2007 will be released simultaneously on our Web site, Copies of the book will be available through Brookings Institution, To read the entire article, click here.
