This is a video clip of a public event I chaired with Al Jazeera Director General Wadah Khanfar — who was simply outstanding. Anyone interested in Arab media and current trends in the Middle East should spend some time watching this clip.
Khanfar is currently Director General of Al Jazeera but was previously Baghdad Bureau Chief when the US bombed that news bureau during the Iraq invasion.
Really fascinating talk and good discussion.
This event — titled “Pushing Reset on America’s Relationship with Al Jazeera and the Arab World” is also available at C-Span.
