Antony Loewenstein on his network TV debut:
During my recent visit to New York for the US launch of My Israel Question, I was interviewed by Press TV, a relatively new cable news network that broadcasts in the US, Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific region. It aims to rival al-Jazeera by providing an alternative perspective on issues that are relevant to Arab people everywhere. Although financed from Iran, its aim is not to broadcast propaganda of the Iranian regime. Press TV works principally with the UN in New York to produce stories.
So lets see, an Iranian TV network is working with the UN to produce programming relevant to Arab people everywhere. Loewenstein might be just a little bit confused. Maybe.

Here's what I learned from watching the interview:
  • smears, harassment and death threats (from his not so nice fellow Jews) are now a fact of life;
  • at some point in his youth something "went off in his head" (the echo must have been something);
  • that massive earring looks to be a clip-on;
  • his shoulders are even more narrow than I thought;
  • he has a double chin (surprising for one so young);
  • an Australian ban of My Israel Question was threatened;
  • we're in trouble so long as there is no open debate of the issues (see here for further discussion).
There, I just saved you seven minutes of tedium.
