Anthony Shadid

Friday, December 28, 2012

New York Times reporter Anthony Shadid died on February 16, at the age of 43, while on assignment covering the conflict in Syria. He was a guest on the Leonard Lopate Show many times, discussing in depth the politics and turmoil in across the Middle East. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting, and to remember him we’re re-airing an interview with him from September 2005, about his book Night Draws Near: Iraq's People in the Shadow of America's War, about his time reporting on the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
