The Price of Media Coverage

Alemayehu Weldemariam is ACC’s first International Visiting Scholar. Because of comments made about his government in a newspaper interview, he was at risk of harm in his home country of Ethiopia. Hear about his hopes and plans in this audio interview I conducted with him for Accent newspaper. Do we take our freedom of speech too lightly here in America?

  1. Thank you for this informative interview. I was unaware that there was a visiting scholar program at ACC. I thought the interview was conducted very professionally, with excellent, concise and pertinent questions. It gave a brilliant synopsis of the program, and provided the opportunity for Mr. Weldemariam to reflect upon his personal insights as a participant in the program. The cadence, rhythm, tone and demeanor of the interview was a pleasure to listen to. Thank you. Metta, Duane
