Each child’s story is worthy of telling. There shouldn’t be a sliding scale of death. The weight of it is crushing.
I've been addicted to TV since I emerged from the womb.
I wanted to be Amish when I was a kid. You just wear black and white - what could be better? One less thing to worry about.
I tend to relate more to people on television who are just themselves, for good or for bad, than I do to someone who I believe is putting on some sort of persona. The anchorman on 'The Simpsons' is a reasonable facsimile of some anchors who have that problem.
I've always loved reporting from the field most of all. There's something about doing live TV and being there as it happens that's always appealed to me. I think there's great value to bearing witness to these events as they're actually happening.
There's just a proliferation of blogs and the chattering classes and people talking. More avenues for people to make their feelings known, which is good.
Misquoting drives me bananas.
When a big event happens, people turn on to CNN, not only because they know there will be people there covering an event on the ground, but because they know we're going to cover it in a way that's non-partisan, that's not left or right.
I suppose if you've never bitten your nails, there isn't any way to explain the habit. It's not enjoyable, really, but there is a certain satisfaction - pride in a job well done.
I think it's a good thing that there are bloggers out there watching very closely and holding people accountable. Everyone in the news should be able to hold up to that kind of scrutiny. I'm for as much transparency in the newsgathering process as possible.
There are some people who are Burger King people, and there are some people who are McDonald's people.
I've never been a Burger King person. I'm a total McDonald's person.
The whole celebrity culture thing - I'm fascinated by, and repelled by, and yet I end up knowing about it.
No one else will really care, but I missed the wars in Sierra Leone and Liberia. Also the war in Chechnya.
A lot of compelling stories in the world aren't being told, and the fact that people don't know about them compounds the suffering.
It's nice on the daytime format to focus on things that connect us.
I think the notion of traditional anchor is fading away - the all-knowing, all-seeing person who speaks from on high. I don't think the audience really buys that anymore. As a viewer, I know I don't buy it.
It was important to me and, I think, important to my parents that I be on my own and figure things out on my own and kind of forge my own path, and I'm really grateful for that.
I've always giggled like a 13-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber meet and greet. There's nothing I can do about it but I've never not been able to stop.
I'm concerned about heart disease. I've raised money to fight heart disease; my dad died of it.
