Shortly after David Hoffman, then the foreign editor of The Washington Post, overcame all of his better judgement and decided to send my 23-year-old intern self to Baghdad, he told me to go talk to Anthony Shadid, who was in Washington on book leave. It’s safe to say this prospect terrified me more than the actual trip to Iraq.
GOOD managing editor Megan Greenwell remembers Anthony Shadid, who taught her how to write about the war in Iraq when they were colleagues at The Washington Post.
Interesting link from Globes, Israel’s main business program. News outlets such as Reuters have been renting rooftops in Tel Aviv; television news producers have also been making arrangements for Iran-Israel war coverage. Article’s Hebrew-only, but Google Translate gives the gist.
Translation: The press is bullish on Middle Eastern war :(.
