Charlie Rose has recorded an interview in Damascus with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, which will run in its entirety in a special presentation on KNME-New Mexico PBS at 7 p.m. today on Ch. 5.1.
In the interview, Charlie Rose asks Assad about the use of chemical weapons in Syria. (KNME will pre-empt the 7 p.m. episode of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, then resume regular programming.)
The Charlie Rose interview with Assad will broadcast one night before President Obama is scheduled to address the nation on his plans to respond to the situation in Syria. PBS NEWSHOUR also will air an interview with President Obama on Monday’s program, when he speaks with Gwen Ifill.
