Jane Arraf was CNN's Senior Baghdad Correspondent and Baghdad Bureau Chief. She was seen often on CNN but I noticed her absence recently. It is because she is now the Edward R Murrow press fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and on leave from CNN.
I always wondered about Arraf's reporting as at times it struck me as not exactly balanced. Now as a fellow at the CRF she is speaking out on politics and perhaps I can see if my perceptions were valid. She appeared today on CNN International and she also has a post at TPM Cafe.
