The nearly 40-year-old NewsHour, co-anchored for the past year by Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill, is teaming up with the digital news mag OZY Media, launched in the fall of 2013, to promote each others content online, to also include OZY co-founder Carlos Watson joining Ifill on broadcast to discuss internet trends and highlights.

‘Kissing the Ring’ – Face The Nation’s 60th Anniversary Celebration

105748_0258Bigwig politicians, reporters and DC socialites, all showed up Monday night to the Newsuem in downtown Washington to honor Bob Schieffer and 60 years of exceptional journalism by Face The Nation. In something rarely seen in Washington, the evening began with a moment of agreement and lightheartedness between partisans.

“I’ve had 101 appearances on ‘Face the Nation,’ which exactly matches my age,” joked Senator John McCain, ”The first time I was on, … Bob … and I had an in-depth discussion about the aviation policies of Calvin Coolidge. … I have been on a number of shows. Always I’m reluctant to do so, I’m sure you know. [Laughter.] … I want to thank Mary Hager, who has been with Bob as his producer for all this time. … For a very short statement, I think next is the Vice President. That will be interesting. [Laughter.]”

Jon Stewart Stopped by the Newseum to Show Off His Debut Film

RosewaterThe host of “The Daily Show” Jon Stewart sat down with PBS’ Newshour’s Gwen Ifill at the Newseum on Sunday night to discuss his first foray into filmmaking following a private screening of his debut film, “Rosewater.”

Stewart was joined by Maziar Bahari, the Iranian-born journalist and inspiration for the film, along with the Committee to Protect Journalists’ Joel Simon.

“Rosewater,” was adapted from Bahari’s autobiography “Then They Came For Me.” It follows the story of the former Newsweek reporter (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) who was unjustly imprisoned in Iran for recording and publishing images of violent protests in Tehran in the wake of the 2009 Iranian presidential elections.

The film paints a disturbingly real picture of Bahari’s nightmarish 118 days spent in solitary confinement for simply doing his job—reporting the news.

Stewart told the panel that he chose to tell Bahari’s story because it is representative of many other lesser-known journalists reporting in countries with oppressive governments. Their stories often go untold.

While Bahari’s imprisonment eventually received national media attention that ultimately led to his release, the panelists said it is important to remember that there are too many other reporters that haven’t been as lucky.

“Maziar had a wonderful infrastructure behind him.. but you have a lot of freelancers out there that have no infrastructure behind them. Nobody is watching their back so they become even more vulnerable to any type of pressure or repression,” Stewart said.

“Rosewater” debuts on Thursday.
