Christiane Amanpour, CNN chief international correspondent and host of CNN International's and PBS's nightly global affairs program, discusses the latest international news -- plus, she talks about the plans for her new, hour-long PBS news show.

@camanpour says she's been doing this a while: she's been on the ground in Israel + Palestinian territories, she's spoken to people on both sides, she's been through the various peace processes...and she always tries to hold both sides to account.

But @camanpour says, "I am horrified, as a human being and as a reporter, by the disproportionate use of force by the massively superior Israeli offensive forces... This was really unbelievable to see that amount of death, that amount of live fire."

And @camanpour says she also took the Palestinian leaders to task for protesters who weren't peaceful.

@camanpour says "we are seeing an unprecedented assault on truth." It has led to copycats everywhere who are enabled in this by the president of the United States. "It's not normal, and we should not accept it."
