I recently attended a screening of the newly released documentary The Control Room, which I heard was set to open in 40 cities nationwide this Friday. This excellent documentary examined the operations of the Al Jazeera satallite news network during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 1993. The screening I attended featured a question and answer session with Hassan Ibrahim, a journalist with Al Jazeera featured in the documentary. “You have the most dangerous weapon in the world,” he admonished the theatre’s overflow crowd, “the ballot box.
