A Minority Report
I just received an email from the Communications Department informing me that Khaled Abu Toameh, a former PLO journalist for Yasser Arafat will be giving a presentation on March 3 at 3PM at the Student Center room 325.
Toameh is an award-winning journalist and TV news reporter who has reported from the West Bank and Gaza Strip for more than twenty years. He now produces fro NBC and other major TV networks. He also is the Senior Palestinian Affairs writer fro the Jerusalem Post.
I think this would be a really great event for the future journalists of our class. Although it may not relate directly, it doesn't hurt to hear a professional talk about his time doing something that we all (on some sort of a scale) will be doing one day!
