Christiane Amanpour anchors from Cairo

As she did in the wake of the tragedy in Tucson, Christiane Amanpour has taken “This Week” on the road, this time to Egypt to cover the unrest there.

Among Amanpour’s guests, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who made the rounds appearing on “Meet the Press,” “Face the Nation,” “FOX News Sunday” and CNN’s “State of the Union.” Another of Amanpour’s guests: Zbigniew Brzezinski, Pres. Carter’s National Security Advisor, and father of MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski. The signal from Cairo dropped in the middle of the Brzezinski interview, at which point Jake Tapper took over from Washington and promoted the roundtable which he moderated.

Amanpour arrived in Cairo yesterday afternoon and, while at the airport, she spoke to tourists and foreign nationals waiting to leave Egypt. From her location in downtown Cairo, ABC News cameras captured Egyptian Air Force jets overhead.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper is en route to Cairo at this hour. One of his last Tweets last night before what will no doubt be a Twitter outage was:

Been waiting for hours for delayed flight. Heading to #Egypt.

Mika in the Media

mika_2-19.jpgMorning Joe co-host (and TVNewser Summit speaker) Mika Brzezinski is interviewed by Lesley Stahl in a lengthy Q&A on WowOWow.com.

Brzezinski talks about her exit from CBS (“It was pretty ugly and I don’t lie about that”), her politically diverse family (“He brought up three very different kids”) and her co-host (“Joe has great visceral, political, analytical skills”).

She also is very honest about going through the process of finding a new job with her two daughters:

When I had a good interview, which was not often, they knew about it. When I had really bad ones and I knew I flubbed it or wouldn’t get the job, they knew about it. And they watched my phone stop ringing and certain friends leave. And they watched it all. And you know what? It has been extremely good for them, as tough as it was, to see their mother fail. And now in the shadow of success again, they’re a little more careful, too. And they’re a little bit wiser, too. And we love what’s happening now, but it doesn’t define us.
