CNN HOSTS JOURNEY TO FIND THEIR “ROOTS”

ROOTS_LOGO_SMALL

“ROOTS: OUR JOURNEYS HOME” kicks off Sunday, October 12th, with a two-hour primetime special airing Tuesday, October 21st at 9 pm ET

Storytelling is at the core of what CNN does, and in a week-long series beginning Sunday, October 12th, thirteen of the network’s prominent hosts and anchors set out on a journey to find their ROOTS. A project one-year in the making, these journalists embark on an emotional journey across continents as they discover never-before-known details of their family histories.

ROOTS: OUR JOURNEYS HOME will kick-off on Sunday, October 12th at 9 pm ET with a special episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown and will air across the network throughout the week, culminating in a two-hour special on Tuesday, October 21st at 9 pm ET. The following is the broadcast schedule for ROOTS:

SUNDAY 10/12
Anthony Bourdain – (9 pm ET) This investigation into the puzzling history of the Bourdain’s great, great, great, grandfather, Paraguayan émigré Jean Bourdain, serves as a springboard to his first tour of this South American country. In Paraguay, Bourdain explores both jungle and desert land, a rich culture, and savory local dishes that include Bife Koygua, Bori Bori, and Sopa Paraguaya.

MONDAY 10/13
Michaela Pereira – (6am ET on New Day) Michaela Pereira’s adoption journey began when she was very young—just three-months-old in Canada. Although she “hit the jackpot” with her adoptive family, she also knows that much of what you see in front of you—the color of her skin, the curl of her hair—comes from her biological parents. After a brief search years ago led to closed doors, Michaela embarks on her roots journey again—this time not in pursuit of her birth parents, but for the place that her ancestors came from—in St. James Parish, Jamaica.

Anderson Cooper – (8pm ET on AC360) Many people know Anderson Cooper as having come from one of America’s most famous families – the Vanderbilts. But growing up, Anderson was always drawn to the southern roots of his father, Wyatt Cooper. Anderson travels to Mississippi where his father grew up and discovers ties between the poor farming family and the rich Vanderbilts that existed before his parents ever met. FULL POST

NJ State Senator calls for investigation of Christie administration for possible "criminal acts"

In an interview with CNN’s New Day, NJ State Senator Ray Lesniak said that he will call for a federal investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s administration over allegations that top Christie appointees orchestrated traffic jams on the country’s busiest bridge last year as part of a political vendetta against the city’s mayor.  Sen. Lesniak said “There's certainly reasonable suspicion that criminal acts have been involved here. Not only abuse of governmental power for political purposes, but we have reckless endangerment of people's lives and possibly criminally negligent homicide.  Those investigations have to be pursued by the authorities of the U.S. attorney’s office.”

Tony Blair to CNN: Mandela made racism seem "stupid," "old-fashioned;" his advice on Northern Ireland peace process "hugely important"

Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Tony Blair told CNN that Nelson Mandela’s influence on the peace process in Northern Ireland was “hugely important” and his leadership “made racism seem somehow stupid and old-fashioned and irrelevant” to people in Western countries.

“As a leader, he was just a huge inspiration. I remember when we started our own peace process in Northern Ireland, he was such an example for reconciliation, forgiveness, the ability to put the past behind you,” Prime Minister Blair said. “He was hugely important in all the work we did for Africa and for ushering in a whole new generation of leaders in Africa. But I will also remember him as a man coming and visiting me in Downing Street, and he’d come in the door and after saying hello to myself and my wife, he’d say hello to the people on the door, the people making the tea, the staff members. He had a wonderful way about him. And to be with him, by the way, was enormous fun.” FULL POST

Sen. Graham on Iran: Congress will pass sanctions in weeks – bipartisan support

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Armed Services Committee member, told “New Day” Anchor Kate Bolduan that he is “very worried” about the nuclear deal with Iran because it’s “so far away from the end game.” Senator Graham said that Iran could still go nuclear with this deal in place, and Congress is going to “weigh in more aggressively” by passing more sanctions in the next couple of weeks to force Iran to stop enrichment and dismantle reactors.

Sen. Graham said, “[Congress] is going to come up with a new round of sanctions that really defines the end game. I think there’s bipartisan support to dismantle the plutonium reactor and to stop enriching in Iran completely.”

When Bolduan asked Sen. Graham what the alternative is, he replied, “Sanctions that get them to the table. And once they get to the table, to let them know, ‘Here’s your alternatives. If you want a commercial piece of a nuclear power program, Lindsey Graham agrees, that is an acceptable outcome. Have a commercial nuclear reactor, just let the international community control the fuel cycle. You’re insisting on the right to enrich. Given your behavior, you’ve abandoned that right. One, there is no right and we’re not going to give it to you.' Once you get them to the table, you let them know what the final deal will look like and say, ‘take this or else.’”

UN Amb. Power on Iran negotiations: Large relief numbers exaggerated

On “New Day” this morning, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power opened up about negotiations with Iran, defending the United States’ engagement, while denouncing the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's comments about Israel as “abhorrent.” Ambassador Power said that we have to give something to get something, in regards to giving “modest relief.” Later in the interview, she advocated for Senate ratification of U.N. Disabilities Treaty, which she said “raises the standards” for people living outside the United States.

Power said, “[Iran wants] to know that we can also deliver on the back end of a deal. So we feel like we’re getting a very good deal here if we can secure this, which is to offer very modest, temporary and very reversible relief in exchange for being able to see whether they’re prepared to take that first step.” When CNN Anchor Kate Bolduan asked Power how much relief will be offered, she confirmed that “larger numbers are wildly exaggerated.”

Rep. Westmoreland weighs in on hearing with Benghazi eye witnesses

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), chair of the House Intelligence Subcommittee, weighed in on the congressional hearing with five CIA contractors who witnessed the Benghazi attack. He talked to “New Day” Anchor Kate Bolduan about whether or not there was a lull in fighting and if CIA non-disclosure agreements are suspicious. Rep. Westmoreland told Bolduan that while he does not think the CIA is stonewalling the investigation, the State Department is responsible.

“I don't believe it was over after the first attack, but I do believe there was a lull in the fighting,” Westmoreland said. “Now, there was still probing, you know guns being shot. As far as getting somebody else there, they had been a directive issued in August of 11 that basically tell the personnel in Libya, you are on your own. So we are looking into that directive to find out exactly who put that out and this was brought to our attention during the hearing.”

"Treme" actor Rob Brown talks class action lawsuit against Macy's: This "can't happen again"

“Treme” actor Rob Brown filed lawsuits against Macy’s and the NYPD for racial profiling him while shopping for a watch. Brown appeared on “New Day” with his lawyers to talk about his experience and other recent allegations against department stores, which has even led to public criticism of Jay-Z’ partnership with Barneys.

Brown said, “Well, at the time I realized this event can't happen again to anyone and I was just thinking from a personal level. Then Trayvon Christian came out, learned about other instances and now that I'm here, I want, hopefully, I'm hoping that other people will come out and talk about their stories. And hopefully employees come out and talk about possible goings on in the department stores that they're privy to that no one knows about. I think that's the main focus right now is, like you said, put the spotlight on it and to, hopefully, get more people to talk about it.”

DNC Chair: "Democrats will not revolt tomorrow" against Obamacare

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) denied that Democrats are going to revolt against President Obama tomorrow by voting for a bill by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI). Republicans are proposing the legislation as a remedy to allow people to keep their insurance plan if they were dropped as a result of Obamacare minimum standards. As the DNC Chair, Wasserman Schultz reiterated that she will push Democrats to campaign on the advantages of the Affordable Care Act, as evidenced by Governor Terry McAuliffe’s win in Virginia.

“Let me just correct the record. One: the vote tomorrow on the [Rep. Fred] Upton bill in the House of Representatives would go much further than simply allowing people to keep their plan if they like it,” Wasserman Schultz said. “What it would do is actually allow new policies to be sold that would allow insurance companies to drop people or deny them coverage for pre-existing conditions, allow insurance companies to charge women double just for being women, allow the annual caps to be… re-added again, where the Obamacare legislation prohibits it. So it would set up two completely different tracks and further undermine the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Democrats will not revolt tomorrow.”

She added, “Tomorrow when that legislation comes on the floor, I’m confident the Democrats are going to stand, as we have, in unity to continue to support fully implementing the Affordable Care Act. We do all believe that we should make sure that folks who like their plan can keep it. I know I’m confident that President Obama and his administration is working diligently to come up with a fix for that problem….”
