  • From Trump to Oprah, speakers offer parting advice to grads

    Associated Press - 05/25/2017

    Christiane Amanpour, CNN’s chief international correspondent, told graduates of Boston’s Northeastern University to combat the “assault on the truth” by some world leaders.

    “To all of you: Be the generation that changes this toxic brew of polarization and partisanship that we’re drowning in and that threatens to destroy our civilizations and our democracies and our societies. Bad things do happen when good people do nothing, so let us all be good people determined to do something.”

    Amanpour, who has covered major conflicts around the world, added that students shouldn’t fear compromise.
