The panel allowed a few minutes or so of questions from the floor.


  • Kris Abrams, producer of Democracy Now! In Exile’s War and Peace Report, asks the New York Times and CNN why there is so little coverage of the anti-war movement
  • Barbara Crossette, correspondent for the New York Times
  • Karen Curry, Vice President and New York Bureau Chief of CNN

And we’re joined in the studio by Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief, Al Quds Al-Arabi. Al Quds Al-Arabi is an Arabic-language daily based in London with a circulation of 100,000. A few years ago, he traveled to the mountains of Tora Bora in Eastern Afghanistan — where the U.S. is currently bombing — to interview Osama bin Laden.
