Posted: 19 Feb 2010"[I]t is notable that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made time to meet with [Al Jazeera's] senior management during her tour of the Middle East this week. The network said in a statement Monday that Ms. Clinton met with its director general Wadah Khanfar 'and the network’s senior editorial staff for a meeting to further dialogue with Al Jazeera.' The meeting was held on the Carnegie Mellon University campus in Doha, Qatar, the city where Al Jazeera is based. It lasted for about one hour. The meeting was 'quite frank' as Al Jazeera managers 'put their frustrations on the table,' according to a network employee who was briefed on the meeting. 'Over all, the meeting was very positive,' the network employee added." Brian Stelter, Media Decoder blog, New York Times, 16 February 2010.
