Brian Stelter's Source Was Good

Christiane Amanpour <em>is</em> formally out at <em>This Week</em>.

As New York Times reporter Brian Stelter accidentally informed the entire caring population (i.e. his Twitter followers), Christiane Amanpour is leaving ABC News’s This Week.

She will be replaced by George Stephanopoulos (whom she replaced) and who will pull double duty on Good Morning America, Mr. Stelter reported officially, noting that the Twitter slip-up sent more sources his way.

Ms. Amanpour will continue to report for the network as a “roving Global Affairs anchor across all ABC platforms,” but has also taken a position back at her old home at CNN, reports the Huffington Post. She will host an evening newscast on CNN International.

Thank god no one got truly fired.
