“With ‘How the World Sees America’ we are promoting a new type of global commentary,” said David Ignatius the moderator of PostGlobal, in a written statement. “By combining in-the-field reporting and emerging technology, PostGlobal can now share multimedia stories about people and places in the news. We can connect America and the world in a new way, and explore the reasons for America’s growing unpopularity in many countries. Bakshi has the opportunity to get behind the rhetoric and interview real people for insight into how U.S. policy, events and culture affect the world.”
