George Clooney just returned from a trip to South Sudan with the Today Show reporter Ann Curry and the Enough Project’s John Prendergast.
This is about the best television reporting you will get on Sudan. It is just a shame that it takes a mega star like George Clooney to get the networks to finally pay some attention to South Sudan. (To be fair, Ann Curry has reported from Sudan multiple times, but she is an outlier.)
Clooney and other Sudan activists are meeting with a number of officials around Washington today, including the President. Later tonight, they are holding a press conference at the Council on Foreign Relations where I hope to get a sense of what these meetings accomplished.
