While in Berlin, I stopped by the Deutsche Welle, or DW-TV station. They run a pretty nice news operation. I got a full tour from one of the VP’s, who was also a politician and said that was a big deal for a woman. I had never watched the network before on TV until I saw it later on one of the million DirecTV channels. Surprisingly, though Deutsche Welle is headquartered in Bonn, it does not broadcast in Germany, but primarily is shown in Russia and countries in the Middle East and Africa. It was a totally different concept: a TV station in Germany that does not cover Germany but instead, covers other countries’ stories. Its a station mainly politicians watch.

Here I am sitting at the DW news desk. Awesome access
