“It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm the death of our friend and colleague, Anthony Bourdain,” the network said. “His love of great adventure, new friends, fine food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we will miss him very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with his daughter and family at this incredibly difficult time.”

The celebrity chef had been working on an upcoming episode for his award-winning show “Parts Unknown,” which featured Bourdain traveling to exotic locations all around the world as he indulged in local cuisine and customs.

In an email to employees, CNN president Jeff Zucker mourned Bourdain’s passing. “Tony was an exceptional talent,” said Zucker. “Tony will be greatly missed not only for his work but also for the passion with which he did it.”

Bourdain became an international star back in 1999 with an article he wrote for the New Yorker called “Don’t Eat Before Reading This,” a piece which eventually transformed into a best selling book, “Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly.”

He eventually made his way to the Food Network where he hosted “A Cook’s Tour” and then “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations,” which was nominated for an Emmy.

Sadly, Bourdain leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter, Ariane.

This is truly a sad, sad end to an extraordinary life and career. Thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones he left behind.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.
