Middle East Protests - CNN Coverage
Posted 23 March 2011 - 02:21 AM
Harrigan was CNN's Moscow correspondent in the 90s/early 00s and he did a pretty good job covering the political turmoil when Yeltsin was still in power and helping the then bureau chief Jill Dougherty in the Kursk submarine tragedy coverage. So, I still consider him to be credible. He's just at the wrong network.

Ben Wedeman is back where he should be in Cairo and was reporting on the Mubarak Trial on Monday. The trial will no longer be televised which disappoints me as I was a trial attorney in the US and found the chaos fascinating. Mohammed Jamjoom was in Cairo on Monday, too..
Arwa Damon is still in Beirut reporting on Syria.
My guess is that Michael Holmes is on vacation as are Nick Robertson and Fred(erich) Pleitgen.

On another note, Jill Dougherty is reporting from Libya these days.

In a somewhat unusual move, the 6pm hour of The Situation Room actually started with this story and had CNN producer on the phone from Cairo.
I didn't see any of their coverage - every time I flipped over to CNN(US) it was what is going to be a weekend of rehash of 9/11 which I have no interest in watching. Maybe CNNI covered it, but I went to AJE and for the three or four hours saw non-stop live coverage which was quite impressive. I may just start watching them - CNN obviously doesn't care.

I do seem to post here a lot about Mr Watson, but I live in Egypt and am interested in the "Turkish Model" (i.e. the particular blend of the secular and the religious in the government and society there) and he covers both those areas. I'm getting a good education from him on Turkey.

^^ Maybe CNN is just waiting to see if Bahrain wants to pay more money for another iList special, so CNN doesn't want to report on anything in case they spoil the deal.
I don't think that foreign reporters are allowed in Bahrain, are they?

Lots of action. This is fabulous. Haven't seen anything like it on the other channels (Skynews, BBCW, ALJ Int and, France 24)
As an aside, I was in Zamalek today on one of the bridges that you all see during the events here and traffic was flowing (a little light) and people were out walking enjoying the sun and I could see the people crowding the street as it entered Tahrir Square -- 2 (quite) long blocks away. The only thing giving it away as a war zone were the ambulances pulling out every once in a while.
