Iran’s President Woos U.S. Media Outlets

rouhaniThe new president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, is in New York City for the annual UN General Assembly meeting.

Along the way, he has been holding something of a media tour for U.S. outlets, talking to NBC’s Ann Curry and CNN/ABC’s Christiane Amanpour. Rouhani is slated to appear on PBS’ “Charlie Rose” tonight, with excerpts airing tomorrow on “CBS This Morning.”

This morning, according to Politico’s Dylan Byers, Rouhani hosted a veritable “Who’s who” of the U.S. media establishment in New York. Rouhani addressed the question of why he did not meet with President Obama while he was at the UNGA.

Also in attendance at the meeting were  ABC News president Ben Sherwood and anchor Diane Sawyer, Bloomberg News editor-in-chief Matt Winkler; CNN president Jeff Zucker and host Fareed Zakaria; Foreign Affairs editor Gideon Rose; Nation publisher and editor Katrina vanden Heuvel; New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., executive editor Jill Abramson, and columnist Tom Friedman; NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell; PBS host Gwen Ifill; POLITICO Magazine editor Susan Glasser; Reuters president and editor-in-chief Stephen Adler; Time Magazine managing editor Nancy Gibbs; and Washington Post executive editor Martin Baron and columnist David Ignatius.
