Christiane Amanpour Honored By Queen Elizabeth II
CNN's Christiane Amanpour was awarded a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) today by Queen Elizabeth II. The investiture took place at a ballroom at Buckingham Palace.
The honor is for "services to journalism." And, just in case you're wondering, I'm told the correct way to address Amanpour would be "Christiane Amanpour CBE".
"I'm incredibly thrilled and very proud," Amanpour told CNN. She said the Queen asked about CNN during the ceremony, and Amanpour "reminded her that she had actually opened the CNN London bureau, our new London offices, back in 2001 and she had a broad smile when I reminded her of that."

In fact, has anyone else noticed that since the talk of a possible invasion of Iran began that Christiane and Michael Ware have been eerily absent from CNN's coverage. I guess it's just their busy schedules.
If you miss them like I do why don't you drop CNN a line. http://www.cnn.com/feedback/cnni/
