Robert Fisk: We are all frightened

Robert Fisk, The Independent’s Middle East correspondent and a Frontline club regular, was in Christchurch, New Zealand to give a talk about his work and the situation in the Middle East at The Press Christchurch Writer’s Festival. The dangers for journalists working in the Middle East are “very real” says Fisk. The Nelson Mail has more,

“I think we are all frightened for our lives working out there. But we also think that we should still be working there. And thank goodness, there are millions of Muslims who try to help us and realise what we are trying to do…”
“…All the Blairs and Bushes experience is Hollywood. They watch movies and TV, and that, I think, is why they get very angry with us because we go and see the real thing. I don’t like justifying wars.” link
