Moving new CNN Special Presentation Explores Hope for Vets Struggling with Post Traumatic Stress

Delon Beckett and Garrett Combs came home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan ready to resume the lives of promise they had left behind.

“I have been a fan of Alisyn’s for a very long time, and couldn’t be happier that she has agreed to come to CNN,” said Jeff Zucker, President, CNN Worldwide.  “She is not only a seasoned journalist with a great curiosity and passion for the news, but she has a presence on camera that I think is very hard to find.  I can’t wait to have her on the air at CNN.”

Camerota will contribute to all programs across CNN.  A permanent role will be announced in the coming months.

"From the moment Jeff Zucker shared his vision for innovative storytelling at CNN, I wanted to be part of it,” said Camerota.  “I know the power of cable news and it's exciting to be going to the place that invented it and continues to be the standard bearer for stories of international import.  I've always admired the fine work of the journalists at CNN and I'm honored to join their ranks."    FULL POST

Israelis respond to Hamas claims

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Mark Regev spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, responds to Hamas claims that Israel is responsible for the current violence. The full interview aired on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, 5-7 p.m. ET.



 Blitzer: “Is there a ceasefire negotiation going on at all?”

Regev: “I can say the following Wolf.  Our goal is to bring peace and quiet to Israel's civilians. So that they don’t have to live in fear of these rockets coming in from Gaza. Too many rockets, hundreds of rockets over the last few weeks. It has to stop. It can stop one way or the other, but it has to stop.”

Blitzer: “Is Egypt, Turkey, the United States, are they involved in trying to stop the fighting?”

Regev: “Many people want to help. And what we say is that we cannot agree to a ceasefire that Hamas wants. Hamas wants a bandaid. Hamas wants as Prime Minister Netanyahu said earlier today, 'a few minutes to rest, to bandage their wounds and then start firing again.' That is not in the cards. We want to come out of this conflict knowing that for a sustained period of time that the people of Israel can live without the fear of these rockets coming in from Gaza.”

The British are coming...tonight at 9pmET on THE SIXTIES on CNN

When Ed Sullivan uttered, “Ladies and gentlemen, the Beatles,” the “lads from Liverpool” and their thrilling performance on Sullivan’s eponymous variety show enthralled millions and launched a reciprocal exchange of influences with American artists. The music was a revelation – and, inspired a revolution in fashion, hairstyles, advertising, politics, and sexual mores that influenced nearly every aspect of American life. Smokey Robinson, Michelle Phillips, Graham Nash, Eric Bourdon, Dave Clark, Mickey Dolenz and others recall what it was like to make the music that mirrored the souls of the young and the restless. Jann Wenner, Mikal Gilmore, Patrick Goldstein, Nelson George, Bill Janovitz, John Heilemann, Tom Hanks, David Wild, and musicians Eric Burdon, Paul Schaffer, andQuestlove describe how this legendary music era did so much more than provide a soundtrack for the generation of change.

THE SIXTIES: The British Invasion debuts tonight, Thursday, July 10 at 9:00pm and encores at 11:00pm and 1:00am Eastern.

During the broadcast, music journalist David Wild and rock artist Susanna Hoffs will answer viewers' questions about music from the era via Facebook.   Viewers can also interact with the series producers via Twitter by following @TheSixtiesCNN and @HerzogCo and using #TheSixtiesCNN. FULL POST
