Amanpour on Canceled Interview with President of Iran: I Will only Wear a Head Scarf in Iran Where it’s the Law

‘I just figured instantly in that moment that I had no choice but to stand up for journalistic principles’

RUSH EXCERPT:

AMANPOUR: “I will wear a head scarf in Iran where it’s actually the law and pretty much you have to, certainly as a foreign correspondent. But here you don’t. I just figured instantly in that moment that I had no choice but to, a, stand up for journalistic principles, and b, it’s happening at a very important time, when the whole idea of the hijab is at issue in this terrible round of protests.”
