On the Media in Cairo (Stephen Nessen)

All Hail Deb Amos!

Saturday, April 09, 2011 - 09:15 PM

Deb Amos is what's known in the biz as an experienced "Middle East Hand." A correspondent for NPR, she's traveled all over the region (she's here right now), knows the history and watched the stories develop over decades, often under fire. She's also one of my best friends. She's the one who told me the time was ripe for "On the Media" to go to Egypt. So we did. Because she is always right. Thank you, Deb.
