Gripping Documentary by Christiane Amanpour
Covers the History of Mass Slaughter;
Neglects Armenian Genocide
A powerful new CNN documentary, "Scream Bloody Murder," anchored by Christiane Amanpour, premiered on tonight (9:00 p.m. ET/PT). The program offered a compelling look at genocide throughout history, with a special focus on those who witnessed and warned the world about these atrocities.
Sadly, however, in a disservice to it millions of viewers, CNN neglected to include the Armenian Genocide as the first such event, despite the fact that it was this atrocity that first prompted international lawyer Raphael Lemkin to coin the word "genocide," and to work toward the eventual adoption of the U.N. Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
