Richard Engel via Skype

NBC “Meet The Press” host David Gregory hosted a new discussion series hosted by Comcast Corp. at its gleaming new offices on Tuesday night by moderating what they referred to as a “star-studded” panel on “Covering the Middle East: Perspectives from the Field.” Well, J.Lo and Britney were no-shows. But NBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Ron Allen talked policy while their colleague Richard Engel gave a “boots on the ground” perspective directly from Cairo via Skype. The NYT’s Helene Cooper and NPR Twitter maven Andy Carvin rounded out the panel, which included a vigorous examination of the impact of social media not only on the journalists’ own jobs but also on burgeoning democratic movements around the world.
