NEW YORK—In an effort to provide viewers with an authentic, first-person account of conditions on the ground in Libya, CNN news anchor Kyra Phillips conducted an exclusive, one-on-one interview Tuesday with the Al Jazeera news anchor who interviewed leaders of the uprising. “What can you tell us about what they told you about what the situation is like for them right now?” asked Phillips, going directly to the source of the Arab news network’s extensive on-air discussions with key figures in the rebellion. “’This fight for freedom has come at a great cost to you,’ is what I imagine you said to them, correct?” CNN has announced it will continue its firsthand reporting on the chaos in Tripoli’s streets from its bureau in Cairo, more than 1,000 miles away.
