CNN’s Amanpour Calls for “Nato” Modeled Mainstream Media Alliance

During a recent event in the UK, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour railed against the Johnson administration, who she accused of acting like the Trump administration in trying to “delegitimize the press.”

In a tweet Amanpour called for a “Nato” modeled mainstream media alliance where an attack on one is an attack on all.

Christiane Amanpour:

The Johnson administration here is trying to do to mainstream media what the Trump administration is in the United States has been doing for the past four years: to marginalize, to delegitimize, and maybe even to dismantle.

Be careful. Keep your guard up. We are the pillars are democracy and freedom. They may be there for a few turns. Journalists are there forever.


Many on Twitter fired back at Amanpour and did not agree with her argument.
