What a week it was...

As Wall Street continued its meltdown, the effects on the average citizen and on the rest of the world became more apparent. On Thursday Richard Quest did a piece from London explaining why the AIG bailout happened:

Friday, Kiran Chetry interviewed former British PM Tony Blair, and they discussed the impact on world finances. They also talked about his new focus, which is working with faith groups around the world:

Tuesday, Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr was in The Situation Room to describe a trip she took with the National Guard to tour the area hit by Hurricane Ike and to gauge how well we are getting basic necessities to those hit hardest:

Christiane Amanpour was on American Morning to talk about Korea (the change in their nuke stance; the rumors about Kim Jong Il's health) and also the special she and Frank Sesno are doing tonight:

The Next President will air tonight at 9pmET and features five former Secretaries of State -- Madeline Albright, James, Baker, Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger, and Warren Christopher.

Finally, just a funny little bit from John Roberts Wednesday... sounding like management there, JR!

Cyn, thanks for the informative clips. I’m looking forward to seeing Christiane and Frank’s “The Next President”. I was surprised to see Cal back in Baghdad; I hope everything is alright with Michael Ware.
Also I hope your health is getting better, get some rest.

Kiran Chetry did a great interview with Tony Blair. CNN is allowing Kiran to do more big interviews, and that's a good thing. I've always been a Chetry fan, but lately I've become an even bigger one. Kiran's little smirk when the name "Palin" is brought up lets me know that she is another liberated female journalist who isn't buying into Palin's warped and backwards views. The pro-choice females in our media have a job to do, and that is to keep America from allowing this woman to get anywhere near a top position in gov't.

And Kiran, Good job!!

I'll have to be honest, when Kiran first hit the scene, I wasn't fond of her, but now I'm changing my mind. I think she holds her own with some heavy hitters.
