PMT: Bourdain to take new CNN show "Parts Unknown" to Myanmar and Congo

Anthony Bourdain, the world-renowned chef, bestselling author and Emmy winning television personality, made his first appearance on CNN since announcing his new CNN show, tonight on “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

Bourdain talks about his new food and travel weekend CNN show, "Parts Unknown," that premieres this spring, among other topical issues. He tells Piers about the countries he's excited to visit:

“I am intensely curious about some places that are difficult. Clearly in the past some of the most exciting and interesting ones have been challenging for one reason or another. One of the shows I’ve been meaning to do for years and haven’t been able to do is to go up the Congo River and trace Conrad’s trip all the way, as far as you can go. It is an amazing country, but security is a concern there. In Myanmar, where we’re going very shortly…”

Pulitzer Prize Winner Sara Ganim Joins CNN

Sara Ganim will join CNN as a correspondent based in Atlanta, it was announced today by Terence Burke, vice president of newsgathering for CNN/U.S.

Ganim (@sganim) joins CNN from The Patriot News in Harrisburg, Penn.  While at The Patriot News, Ganim broke the story of the grand jury investigation into Jerry Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator for the storied Penn State University football program.  Her reporting of Sandusky’s child sex abuse scandal that enveloped the school, head coach Joe Paterno and Sandusky’s Second Mile Charity garnered a Pulitzer Prize in 2012. Along with her print journalism experience, she has also served as an on-air contributor for CNN, HLN and In Session during Sandusky’s trial and conviction.

Prior to her work at The Patriot News, Ganim reported for the Centre Daily Times covering crime and the courts, and freelanced as a high-school student for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

“Sara is multi-talented, and a relentless reporter. Her instincts and her robust questioning while covering the Sandusky trial and the Penn State community are a testament to her award-winning journalism,” said Burke.  “We are very fortunate to have her join our newsgathering team and we believe she has a bright future with CNN.”

Ganim holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Penn State University.  In 2011, she was honored with the George Polk Award in journalism and the Sidney Award for socially-conscious journalism.

DNC Chair calls Petraeus controversy "disturbing"

DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) weighs in on David Petraeus’ affair, resignation and ongoing investigation.

Rep. Wasserman Schultz says, “Disturbing is the word that has come to my mind since all of this has come to light. Really, I think it goes without saying, that if you’re the Director of the CIA, if you’re a four star general in the United States Army, that you have to hold yourself to a higher standard and you can’t put yourself in a comprising position.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9a ET on CNN.

Chaffetz on Petraeus: "It's a crime in the military;" something "grossly wrong"

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) responds to the latest developments in David Petraeus' affair and resignation that has widened to include General John Allen.

Rep. Chaffetz says, “You’re not going to notify all the Congress, but you do have a fiduciary responsibility to tell the Chairman and the ranking member of both the House and Senate of the Intelligence Committee. And if they were not informed, and it looks like Dianne Feinstein was not informed, then something is grossly wrong. Those people have to know.”

He continues, “It’s a crime in the military. And these are four stars. You don’t go to the bathroom without six people knowing where you’re going.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9a ET on CNN.
