Apparently, Amanpour has never heard of the word “irony.”

CNN’s chief international correspondent said skeptics of man-made global warming should not be given equal time on the news while accepting an award for championing press freedom.

    In most every walk of life, there are the achievers, those who are worthy of our admiration, respect and gratitude; and then there are those who continually give each other awards.
