Our friends in North Korea inform us that a few talk jockettes are helping their Iraqi counterparts learn the ropes. Prospective yakkerettes from Iraq have come to the U.S. to spend a few weeks training in the radio game. Their teachers include: Monica Crowley of WABC and MSNBC, Joan Hamburg of WOR, and Laura Flanders of Air America.
This is sponsored by the Institute for War & Peace Reporting:
IWPR, an international organization supported by major western development agencies and private foundations, has been training print journalists in Iraq since 2003. The non-profit agency only recently started working with Iraq's radio personalities and news people as well.
