My Media Round Up This Week

without comments

That's me standing off to the right (with a 60 Minutes cameraman in the foreground) and Saleh is in the center of the action.

Now, I'm not trying to stand out here but I am somehow towering over everyone just about.

New York- I had kind of a busy week with (background) appearances on PBS Frontline on Tuesday with Canadian journalist Martin Smith’s interview with Amrullah Saleh where they wove in shots from the fourth annual Jamestown terrorism conference at the National Press Club back in December and Thursday on CNN, again at the Press Club for the debut of the Pearl Project report in a story titled “Who Really Killed Daniel Pearl?” As someone who’s existed in journalism’s underground for the better part of the last decade, this is more exposure than I often have within the course of a few days.

The Truth Left Behind-The Debut of the Pearl Project

without comments

Washington D.C.- This morning the Pearl Project- an investigation into the murder of WSJ reporter Daniel Pearl in Pakistan nine years ago-debuts today and I’m proud to say it received top billing on today’s Washington Post homepage. I worked on the investigation at its outset in February and March of 2008 in Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Islamabad, Pakistan.  The project was produced by a group of 32 students and two professional correspondents at Georgetown University in conjunction with the Center for Public Integrity. The report in its entirety can be seen here. Jane Perlez has a piece in today’s New York Times here and Ben Farmer from The Telegraph has a piece datelined from Kabul here. The investigation was run by Asra Q. Nomani and Barbara Feinman Todd and again, I’m happy to have had the opportunity to be a part of it. Additionally, Nomani has a piece on the Daily Beast here and Bloomberg’s Tony Cappacio and Flavia Krause-Jackson have a piece here.
