CNN Presents: Amber Lyon profiles ‘Anonymous’

This weekend on CNN PRESENTS, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Brooke Baldwin host a 3-story magazine program.  Correspondent Amber Lyon reports on the elusive international movement, “Anonymous,” a leaderless collective of computer hackers, and street and video activists who say democracy in the U.S. has been corrupted by greed – and themselves as vindicating those victimized by governments and corporations.  Using the Internet, Anonymous has flooded and crashed corporate and government websites, exposed embarrassing photos of a San Francisco Bay area public transportation employee after the system began blocking cell phone signals of regional anti police protestors, and joined and supported ‘Arab Spring’ and Occupy Wall Street demonstrations with various disruptions.  Lyon speaks with people inside the movement to dispel rumors and report what really motivates the movement and its supporters.

Also in the program, chief medical correspondent Dr. Gupta reports on how indoor pollution may be impacting kids in schools, and investigative correspondent Drew Griffin reports on how some medical residents are cheating on the medical board certification tests for radiologists.

CNN PRESENTS will air on Saturday and Sunday, January 14 & 15 at 8:00pm and 11:00pm ET & PT.
