Hillary Clinton just gave an interview_with_Al_Arabiya. I still don’t understand the lack of interviews with Al-Jazeera. There’s simply no way of getting around the fact that Al-Jazeera is the top dog in Arabic media. If you want to reach the Arab street and be given any sense of credibility you have to face tough questions on Al-Jazeera. Do her advisers understand this? There are logical reasons why the President might confine himself to a soft-ball interview on pro-US Al-Arabiya but this shouldn’t apply to lower ranking officials in the administration.
