I was a guest on Al Jazeera TV’s Listening Post program, which discussed the ongoing controversy over Ethan Bronner’s conflict of interest due to his son’s voluntary IDF service. My comments are in the first segment which goes roughly from the 1 minutes mark up to the 9 minute mark in the program. My remarks were considerably condensed from the overall video footage I provided them. But that’s what happens on TV. I was just happy to be there. Thanks to Bill Alford of ScanTV’s Moral Politics for production assistance.
I understand that Clark Hoyt will do another follow up on the Bronner story in his public editor column this coming Sunday including letters from readers responding pro and con. It’s good to keep this story alive.
Jonathan Cook has some terrific additional insight into the Bronner affair.
