CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour reacted angrily on Tuesday to what she said was a false interview by Turkish daily newspaper Takvim, in which she was quoted saying that CNN had hoped to “destabilise” Turkey in its reporting the recent uprising.

Senior CNN anchorwoman Christiane Amanpour has expressed her indignation over Turkish daily Takvim’s publishing of a bogus interview with her its June 18 edition.

“Shame on you @Takvim for publishing FAKE interview with me,” Amanpour posted on her Twitter account, after Takvim published a fake “interview” with her in which she said the CNN editorial board had made her cover recent events with the intention of “destabilizing” Turkey for international business interests, among a long list of other lies.

Takvim had dedicated its cover to the story under the headline “dirty confession,” with a subtitle reporting that Amanpour confessed “We did everything for money.”
