Journalist, Educator

Michael Berlin started covering the United Nations as a correspondent for the New York Post in 1967, in the midst of the Six-Day War in the Middle-East. This assignment started a major component of his almost 30-year journalism career; he specialized in diplomatic coverage of the United Nations for both the New York and the Washington Posts. Serving as a professor at the time of the interview, conducted on 15 April 2005, Mr. Berlin discusses a variety of topics on his experiences in covering the United Nations, from his contacts within the Secretariat and how Secretaries-General Waldheim and Pérez de Cuéllar dealt with the press to United Nations peacekeeping missions.
