Queen honors CNN’s Amanpour

[Just when you thought you had enough.]

LONDON, England (CNN) — She has reported from the front lines of conflicts around the world, interviewed world leaders, and investigated the important issues of our time. And on Tuesday, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour received an honor from Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of her work.

Christiane Amanpour’s award recognizes her services to journalism.

Amanpour received a CBE, or Commander in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, “for services to journalism.” The queen bestowed the honor on Amanpour, CNN’s chief international correspondent, at a ceremony in the ballroom at Buckingham Palace, London.

  1. Like the Nobel Peace Prize, sullied many times, these honours bestowed by the Queen on the “most worthy” have lost their meaning and lustre.
    Ever since Elton John has become a Sir (shouldn’t it have been Dame?)for his contribution in popular music (Give me a break!)I have stopped taking these awards seriously.
