After Lara Logan (who according to her own news organization, CBS, was attacked in Cairo in mid-February – which, as I wrote in my previous post, was widely reported by the U.S. media despite lack of evidence or confirmation from other sources), here is another Western journalist under pressure:
Independent journalist Brandon Jourdan had all of his documents, computer, phone and camera flash drives searched and copied upon arriving at a US airport.
So, to sum up: the “independent journalist” doesn’t seem to have had anything [any articles] published online, as my search revealed (but sure, he is a videographer), and he is being interviewed by the host of the organization he works for (Democracy Now!). Doesn’t that make for a view of the story and situation that is possibly just a little bit one-sided? Just asking… :)
