    Greg,

    Christiane Amanpour if a big name in news. But if you watch her over and over, you will understand she lacks substance. Her style and 'physical personality' has created an Aura - whereby making people think she's a great correspondent.

    More words and little substance.

    So why are we not seeing any Indian immigrants featured? Aren't there any that have contributed, or is this list just pro-European?

    OK. Sorry. Maybe I missed it. Why not put the list with links as a side-bar on the main page (like a hall of fame)?

    That's going to have to be ILW's call as they designed this page for me.

    Yeah, Christiane Amonpour is awesome. I loved it when Chris Kattan from SNL would spoof her.

    As a Brit, I have to disagree with the last comment about Ms. Amanpour lacking substance. She has put herself in harms way in many a war since the 1980's if memory serves me corrently, even before America noticed her. She has the guts, the intellect and a passion to always find a different angle to a story - I think they call that substance. I guess you did not see her in the days when she was mostly featured on CNN international and not in the US. Our quality of journalism and coverage of international news in Europe leaves a lot to be desired here on most of your networks, that spend more time on car chases and salacious hollywood starlet news than the reall world issues. And that's my opinion for the day!

    "As a Brit"

    Firstly, I agree with you on Christiane.

    This is kind of off-topic but you seem to be the perfect person to ask this question. There seems to be some controversy amongst people from the UK as to whether they should refer to themselves as English, Scottish and Welsh or as Brits. I understand Brit was popular a few years ago but now English/Scottish/ Welsh etc seem to be coming back in vogue. So, my question is how should we refer to people from the British Isles?

    To USC: "Brit"
    We still refer to ourselves as Brits. We are UK citizens and it is the United Kingdon of Great Britain. Those who are Scots are somewhat nationalistic, but that has existed for a 1000 years. Brits, British is still politically correct.
    Let's stick to the subject matter of the Blog please.

    If we see around the world people who are working for MNC are not from single country they are more number immigrants who work in different countries leaving their home land. According to uk bestessay articles Christiane Amanpour is one of them who have become very famous with her talking skill through CNN in USA. There are many immigrants in USA who became famous and loved the people of America.
