European, Arab Press More Critical of American Coalition Efforts in Iraq, Says Journalism's Floyd Abrams

European and Arab press often seemed more critical of American coalition efforts in the war in Iraq, more focused on civilian casualties and in some cases surprised by the quick outcome, says Floyd Abrams, William J. Brennan Visiting Professor, during a First Amendment panel discussion sponsored by the School of Journalism. The panel, which included Bernard Estrade, Agence France-Presse; Lionel Barber, Financial Times; Abderrahim Foukara, Al-Jazeera, and Alice Chasan, World Press Review, offered perspectives on coverage of the war by non-U.S. news organizations.
