Me and my fellow journalists who had arrived in the U.S. as part of the U.S.-Pakistan professional partnership program for journalists were planning to take the journey back home when I was asked by my channel to stay back in the U.S. and cover the elections.
A Foreign Perspective
Shopping in Chicago
Whenever one visits a foreign country, you always get a list from family members and friends which tells you about the things you are supposed to be carrying back for them. I, just like everyone, was also handed over that list. I won’t go too much into what I bought and what I avoided, but for the past couple of days, I was looking to buy a cell phone here.
President Obama and Mitt Romney talk foreign policy -- for the most part -- in the final presidential debate. But the two show few differences in their world view. We assess their global perspectives.
Joy Rides and Halloween
It’s been a week now in the WTTW station and I’m feeling lucky to have met some wonderful people here. I had my first chance to go on-air, on the program Chicago Tonight, on Thursday.
A Foreign Perspective
A Pakistani journalist is spending a month with us at Chicago Tonight as part of an international exchange program. Mansoor Ali Khan tells us what he's learning about America, and what Americans should know about Pakistan.
Getting Used To Chicago
I am over the jet lag now, sleeping properly for eight hours. Initially, I used to sleep at 11:00 pm and wake up at 4:00 am, but now I finally have been able to adjust to the timings. Finally, I’ve been well-accustomed to the rail system, and reaching my office and back to my hotel is now a piece of cake.
Good Morning, America!
Passion, Positivity and Punctuality: these are the three things which center around the people of America which I have observed since the day my plane landed in Washington D.C. on 2nd October. I am one of the 14 journalists from Pakistan chosen for the sixth batch of journalists’ exchange program for three weeks, funded by the U.S. State Department.
