The two venues for the launch of Attacks on the Press in New York couldn’t have
been more different. On
Tuesday morning I was joined by Newsweek’s Maziar Bahari, and CPJ Asia
Program Coordinator Bob Dietz in the hushed auditorium of the Dag Hammarskjöld
Library at United Nations headquarters. The event was so well attended by the U.N.
press corps that we ran out of copies of the book. The press
conference went for more than an hour until I was slipped a note
saying the U.N. spokesman needed the podium for the U.N. daily briefing.
