- On Wednesday, CNN Chief International Anchor Christiane Amanpour walked out of an interview with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in New York City after being asked to wear a headscarf.
- Amanpour said that the interview was slated to be Raisi’s first on U.S. soil, but an aide approached her 40 minutes after the intended start and suggested she wear a headscarf because it was the holy months of Muharram and Safar.
