ABC News's Christiane Amanpour lands interview with Gaddafi
What a week for ABC. It's got the Academy Awards, it's got Hollywood's latest meltdown, Charlie Sheen -- and it's got Col. Moammar Gaddafi.
The network interrupted its regularly scheduled programming Monday to announce Christiane Amanpour had landed an exclusive (among U.S.-based TV networks, that is) interview with Libya's embattled leader, bits of which would be sprinkled across "World News with Diane Sawyer," "Nightline," and Tuesday's "Good Morning America."
"I interviewed Col. Moammar Gadhafi this morning, when he told me he cannot step down because he is not a president or king, and claimed there have been no demonstrations in the streets of Libya's capital," Amanpour wrote on her "Reporters Notebook" on ABC's Web site.
Amanpour participated in the interview along with BBC and the Sunday Times of London.
