It’s Journalism Week on BTR!
First up, we make good on our promise to bring you some lighthearted banter on HBO’s The Newsroom. BTR interns Timothy Dillon and Melissa Gerson join us in the studio for Third Eye Weekly’s first ever round table!
Later, we take a serious look at the Western media’s coverage of the Syrian uprising and the role that social media has to play in the conflict. Fadi Salem, Director of the Governance and Innovation Program at the Dubai School of Government and co-author of The Arab Social Media Report, joins us from Dubai.
Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Adam Falkner and The Spoken Word Almanac Project.
