    I must say that I am disappointed in CNN for putting up this piece from what looks like a great interview. The one "tabloid" piece is of course misinterpreted as "Angelina adopting from Haiti". There must have been another part of the interview you could have released, but since CNN went down the tabloid route by putting their "break up" in a crawl as real news, this seems right in line with what is happening in journalism. Shame on you Ms. Amanpour. I expected better from you.

    It's sad that Amanpour and CNN couldn't resist the need to go down the tabloid/sensationalist route while interviewing Miss Jolie. But that's the state of "journalism" now., just a way of life. I take it that the only way Miss Jolie could answer a question about adoption, had to be in relationship to what was published in the tabloid.

    Then again your net-work is not above quoting News of the World with out fact checking, so why should I expect more from you.

    Ms. Amanpour - I hope you can air some footage of SOS Children's Villages in Haiti (maybe from Anderson Cooper) when you interview Ms. Jolie this weekend because she is an ambassador for them. ( I don't know anything else about AJ but anyone who risks going into that type of situation to bring attention to the plight of the children should be respected for that gift to the people). What matters most is that we get the word out about the wonderful work being done by the organizations who are trying to help in Haiti. As a donor, I would love to see an in-depth look at SOS Childrens Villages programs in Haiti. The SOS Family Strengthening Programs will be helping thousands of people. SOS also helps with reconstruction. They did so in several countries after the tsunami.

    Totally agree with Janie and June Morgan. The question was inappropriate and did not belong in that interview. Whether or not Pitt and Jolie plan to adopt another child, or where they plan to adopt from, is nobody else's business. Also, if Ms. Amanpour had done her homework, the question would have been unnecessary. Haitian law does not allow unmarried couples to adopt.

    Why can't she just do good things and shut up about it already? Countless actresses have worked with the UN and donated millions of their own money to good causes, without having a PR company working overtime to make them out to be the next Mother Theresa. We don't hear so much about them because they don't turn every charitable act into a personal photo op. Enough with the celebrity worship.
