Marash: “Not the Channel That I Signed Up To Do”

By SteveK 

The New York Times’ Brian Stelter lands the first interview with Dave Marash since he left his position as anchor for Al Jazeera English.

Marash explained his reason for leaving, saying, “To put it bluntly, the channel that’s on now — while excellent, and I plan to be a lifetime viewer — is not the channel that I signed up to do.”

He also cited a lack of editorial input allowed from the Washington bureau and the fast pace of the news broadcasts as reasons for his departure.
