National Press Club: Lunch With Ahmadinejad
It may have been a joke that the New York Times invited Ahmadinejad to lunch—but this is no joke: Iranian President to Speak at NPC’s First-Ever Videoconference Luncheon.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will speak and take questions at the National Press Club’s first- ever videoconference luncheon at noon on Monday, Sept. 24.
Ahmadinejad will appear in the NPC Ballroom in Washington via videolink from New York, where he will be attending the UN General Assembly. After Ahmadinejad’s speech, NPC President Jerry Zremski will ask questions handed up from the audience for a minimum of a half-hour.
Please note: the format of the luncheon with President Ahmadinejad will differ from the typical NPC luncheon program in many ways. President Ahmadinejad will be introduced at noon. His speech will last a half hour, and will be followed by 45 minutes of questions. Lunch will be served after the speech and question period.
NOTE TO BROADCASTERS: Switched feed is available. Please contact Tiina Kreek in the NPC Broadcast Operations Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (202) 662 7510.
Attendance at this luncheon will be limited to NPC members, their guests and accredited media only. Luncheon tickets are $16 for members and $28 for their guests. To reiterate, the only nonmembers to be admitted to this event will be accredited media.
To reserve a seat at the luncheon, call the NPC reservation line at 202- 662-7501. Accredited media with questions should email Melinda Cooke at email@example.com to reserve a seat.
Media and academic elites are falling over themselves to fete this genocidal madman.
