And I've rather belatedly discovered Peter Arnett has another TV gig:
Within days of being fired by the US network NBC, Arnett found an unlikely new audience today: the Dutch-speaking - and hopefully English-comprehending - citizens of northern Belgium.
"Thanks Peter Arnett, we are proud to have you on our team," said VTM news anchor Dany Verstraeten after Arnett finished his first report for the private Belgian TV network.
VTN said it will have daily reports from one of the world's most famous reporters until the end of the war. Also today, a state-run TV channel in Greece said Arnett would soon be providing nightly dispatches for it, too.
