Award-winning journalist Christiane Amanpour on Thursday called journalism worldwide a "sacred endeavor" as she accepted the 2011 Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism at Arizona State University.

"We have so much power for good, and also for bad when we don't act," she said. "To speak truth to power is an incredible thing."

ASU President Michael Crow presented Amanpour with the 28th annual award, given each year by the Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication to recognize a distinguished journalist who embodies the values of the school's namesake - excellence, integrity, accuracy, fairness and objectivity.
