On GPS Sunday: Analysis on Ukraine, and assessing women's changing role in society

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

On GPS this Sunday: A special live show, with the latest developments on Ukraine – including opinion from leading European officials – and Fareed’s take on the Obama administration’s response to Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

Also on the show, the New Yorker’s Evan Osnos will look at China’s response to missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 and what the search says about that country’s strengths and weaknesses.

Later on the show, Fareed explores the issue of women in power and convenes a panel of top commentators including Tina Brown, founder of the Women in the World Summit, Arianna Huffington, editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post and the new book Thrive, Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature, and Joseph Nye, a professor at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.

“If you think of the first women's revolution being getting the vote, the second being giving us access to all the corridors of power…the third one is changing the workplace,” Huffington says. “[C]hanging the world in which women are competing, which I believe is going to be the fastest way to get more women at the top. Because right now, women are paying a heavier price in stressful jobs. The data that came out last year is unequivocal, that women in stressful jobs have a 30 percent greater threat of heart disease and a 60 percent greater risk of diabetes.”

    Fareed Zarakia is a typical reporter who will never dare deviate from your typical hypocritical Western reporting. The US illegal invasions of Vietnam, Granada, Panama, Haiti and Cuba as well as Iraq and afghanistan are perfectly fine with Mr. Zarakia. But we are all supposed to be angry when Russia invaded Ukraine. The argument that Russia did annex a Ukrainian territory but the US did not annex any of the countries it invaded is simply pathetic and just silly. What is implicit in this argument is that it is acceptable to invade another country but it not acceptable to annex it.

      Appreciate GPS for the provocative articles being posted. Respect the responses from thousands of individuals world wide who might have relevant and enlightening perspectives (like yourself for example). Value the logic and knowledge you might have to adequately distinguish between what's real and what's bull crap. An finally, be grateful that Zak can continue to keep on doing what he's doing, because if he followed the advise of many readers CNN would can his ass on the spot.

    Sanctions against Russia would lead to the opposite effect-it has already started to reform their financial and economic systems ... Thanks. "in the meantime the right sector" a disgruntled power expressly stated that they helped the new Government to COMMIT coup d'etat. you gentlemen, miscalculated-hate the people of Ukraine and a cynical Europe and the more BLOODTHIRSTY United States. that you zapoëte, when given to the authorities by the State coup FASCIST JUNTA will be overthrown by the people and sooner than you think ... all of your contract will be cancelledbecause they were neligitimnoj power? Meanwhile, brešite in their media-freedom of lies you've been good.

    Women should be free to play any role in society that they choose individually, but I am very glad that many women choose traditional roles as wives and mothers who do not go to an office to make their contribution to society.

    Russian annexation of Crimea? Putin the tough guy? Crimea voted in a free and fair referendum to be united with Russia. The Russian army, already in Crimea under an international treaty, protected the Crimean people to exercise they sacrosant right to decide for their future. WE, THE PEOPLE can overrule any "international treaties" and "territorial integrity" implemented without consulting WE, THE PEOPLE.

    @ trueteller1 do you belong to that other group of warmonger club that is located in DC? First of all there was no coup! The ppl of Crimea voted to become part of Russia and 2nd Obama should declare war on behalf of Ukraine when they ALSO wish to become part of Russia? Are you freakin nuts? Its what the PEOPLE of those countries WANT, who gives a damn what the idiots running them want!

    GPS is one of the few in depth news shows without arguments and uninformed guests. Up there with Frontline or Charlie Rose, etc. Very disturbed by CNN interrupting it now with a crappy generic 24 hr cable news coverage. Unbelievable. We all have apple opportunity to watch cable news. Please CNN, keep your hands of GPS.

    Women in power at the IMF, the Fed, Germany, and groups of women contributing to peace and other worthy causes in South Asia. Great! And, an excellent panel. But I missed a reference (at least in passing) to Dilma in Brazil, and Marina Corina Machado's leadership role in Venezuela's dissidence. Latin America seems to be of little if any, interest. More importantly, the added value of femenine leadership did not emerge in a sufficiently crisp manner. Pity! Such a vital issue. Perhaps its complexity merits more than a one shot treatment.

      Tell me Elena, just what contribution is German Chancellor Angie Merkel doing to diffuse the situation in Ukraine and is she making any efforts to get Obama and Vladimir Putin together to talk this over? Of course not! All this broad does is sit around and parrot the Washington line like a weak minded Tea Partier. The there is Madeleine Albright and Hilary Clinton who disgraced this country by representing it! Need I say more?

    Well, gps got preempted again, this time because of the breaking news that a dead jellyfish was found near the missing plane! Keep up the good work, cnn!

      Zakaria cannot change CNN/Turner/Time-Warner being of course part of the "deep state". And the likelihood of him jumping ship to become anything the likes of Jones/Celente/Roberts, etc, etc is pretty slim. But who knows. The shift in perspective as witnessed by so many GPS comments which question and outright challenge the propaganda being spewed about could possibly force them to shut the whole thing down. Now wouldn't that be sumptin?

      March 30, 2014 at 2:13 pm |
      • cnn is awful

        I don't know about all that propaganda stuff, but it's getting shut down because your average American doesn't want to watch intelligent programming and cnn can get better ratings airing filler about plane crashes and justin biebers and whatever else the current pop culture flavor of the month is.

        Would be great if Fareed could get picked up by al jazeera or pbs. They'd give him the time of day and, *gasp*, actually air his show!

        @cia, Not that it is likely in the works, but it might be interesting to note that two other journalists/reporters/anchors (?) I believe at RT and Fox (?) recently made headlines over their abrupt resignations. Perhaps the "dark side" at CNN is feeling a tremor in the force. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    How sad! Even you Fareed, in your opening statement , GPS March 30th, 2014, totally ignored the occupation and annexation of Palestine. Annexation of Palestinian land in the west bank and the ongoing, non-stop building illegal settlements continues week-in week-out for year after year. "From 1969- to 1989 the UN Security Council adopted 131 resolutions directly addressing the Arab Isreali conflict.". Is it ignorance of historical facts, or fear of telling the truth?
    And by what justification do you equate Syria's president to North Korea's premier ?Are you serious? Or has GPS joined the rest in presenting false statements as facts.
    Since your GPS was aired I missed one or two episodes. But now I fear that GPS is loosing what made it worth watching and I find that regrettable.

    There seems to be an overcomplication here. Men are on an individual level 40 times more likely to kill someone than a woman. Testosterone shapes behavior and probably encodes and shapes cognitive function as much as society. In that sense, examining war-like social behavior or an extra gene may not be needed at all.

    For God's sake: how we can watch your show? It's not true is -at least at 1pm- every Sunday. I almost hate the non-information called 'mystery of flight 370'. Fareed Zakaria GPS is one of the few things I ever watch in CNN. What's up with CNN?

    Where is Fareed's GPS show? This is the 2nd Sunday Candy Crowley's show has continued into GPS show time. My TV guide shows that Fareed should be on at 12PM CST, Sunday . So what's up?? Bring him back!

    Where the hell is Fareed Z GPS. It is supposed to be on Sunday 10:00am pacific time. Its even on the schedule. Instead we get a continuous inane stream of opinions and non info abo!ut flight 370. 'THIS JUST IN....WE ARE JUST AS IGNORANT AS WE WERE AN HOUR AGO!' Followed by "So Bill Nye, what's your opinion about that?" CNN is does not report news, just blather blather. Oh well, back to Aljazeera or NPR.

    What happened to Fareed's show at 10 am PST?? This is my favorite Sunday morning news program but now it appears to be gone. It's one of the few truly intelligent programs that you offer anymore. CNN is really going downhill fast! Don Lemon as an example is a dunce! Come on, CNN, get it together!

    The issue is who is destabilizing the system of International law. Changing state boundaries by force is one aspect of the problem. So are making war to control resources and markets, strike states we're not at war with drones, provoke civil unrest to depose leaders who don't toe the line ... Fareed shame on you for making Russia the issue instead of the United States.

    March 30, 2014 at 4:13 pm |
    • Joseph McCarthy

      Thank you, Enver. You're right on the money. Fareed Zakaria is just another right-wing reporter who would rather not address certain issues.

      March 30, 2014 at 4:46 pm |
      • ✠RZ✠

        You could be right McCarthy, but you must also consider that we're talking about CNN/Turner/Time Warner here. I've recently seen some interviews done by Christiane Amanpour which quite frankly, were very disturbing. And what would you think if Zak were to say "It is really a stunning, willful choice by President Putin to invade another country...You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on a completely trumped up pretext." Don't worry, I doubt Zak could even be forced to make such a hypocritically nauseating statement, but John Kerry sure did on March 3rd.

    Very disappointed to find Zaharia/GPS pre-empted again this morning (third week in a row). Instead, we were treated to more "news" about floating stuff that wasn't debris from a flight that disappeared three weeks ago. We desperately need the kind of intelligent analysis and discussion GPS offers. We do not need more breathless empty speculation, hearsay, and general silliness. Come on, CNN!

    Look at when Harris almost had a nervous breakdown because he thought Israel would attack, we kept mobilizing making them go on and off alert. In the end they thought no attack. Bang hit them. Russia is like the gulf wars massive build up. I can tell you it costs a lot of money to mobilize.

    KOSOVO! KOSOVO KOSOVO! HELOOO! Revise your facts, revise your logic, revise your moral norms, revise what you did to KOSOVO and Serbia, revise what NATO did to Serbian people by brutal bombing them, revise Carla Del Ponte findings that Serbians were slaughtered and used as organ donors by Albanians iin the "yelow house" and maybe you will realize who was the first to break the international law. Rotten moral norms, ahhh.....

    Women will be just as bad as men because they are human. This idea of women having more personal sense and better at soft power is simply positive stereotyping, but stereotyping nonetheless.
    I long for women to gaining absolute power. We will then see that women politicians are just as deeply flawed and megalomaniacal as their male counterparts. I await the first female mass murdering dictator. She will cry on tv, claiming that her scapegoated demographic resisted her motherly love and gentle caress of her power, and thus deserved to be eliminated. And you will all cheer her.

    Oh can it @ Deeply Cynical! Women are more adapted to AVOID wars then to just egotrip their way into every war they possibly can! Plus they have only ONE head to think with thereby they will be less likely to confuse theirselves unlike your species!
