Following today’s guilty verdicts in the trial of several Al Jazeera journalists, the network’s American channel will produce a special on the case and on press freedom — or lack of it — around the world.
“War on Truth” airs at 8:30pmET tonight and will be hosted by David Shuster. Shuster will interview Al Jazeera English reporter Sue Turton – another of the AJE journalists sentenced by the Egyptian court. Turton, a British journalist, was sentenced in absentia.
“Consider This” at 10 pm with host Antonio Mora will also feature a full hour on press freedom.
