So, How’s Your UN Week Going?

It’s UN week here in New York, where diplomats tie up traffic and ring up tabs.

Eric Shawn has been covering the goings-on at the UN for Fox News. CNN’s man at the UN is Richard Roth, and NBC’s chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell is reporting for “Nightly News” as well as anchoring her MSNBC show from New York.

While Pres. Obama had his say earlier this morning at the UN, there was one notable absence this year: the world leader who gave this 90-minute speech in 2009, is nowhere near New York this week … at least we don’t think so.

And this got us thinking about UN week 2008, when CBS’s Katie Couric caught up with GOP VP nominee Sarah Palin. Palin was in New York for meetings with several world leaders. Couric’s interviews with Gov. Palin two years ago this week were both harshly criticized and award-winning.
