Christiane Amanpour Defends CNN To Jon Stewart (VIDEO)

Christiane Amanpour defended CNN from Jon Stewart during an appearance on Monday's "Daily Show."

Stewart has not exactly been a champion of Amanpour's longtime home, and he started in as soon as the famed war correspondent walked on set.

After mentioning that there was a "humanitarian crisis unfolding before everybody's eyes," Stewart added, "How are things at CNN?"

Amanpour said that the network was coming back and would be better than ever. "I want to bet and I will be betting on CNN winning," she said. Stewart said that he only roasted the network because he cared so much about it.

Later, as the two discussed the media, Amanpour again promoted her employer.

"I urge you to keep watching CNN. There is much more intelligent conversation going on," she said.

"Tell me what time," Stewart joked. "Because I do watch it."

"From morning to night!" Amanpour replied. "Are you sure you're watching CNN?" Stewart asked.
