C-Span was showing video of Thursday's panel of cartoonists. Flemming Rose was speaking. This was an hour-long panel, and here's the description:
Panel --- Caricaturing A Nation: Americans and Muslims Draw Each Other
From ethnic stereotypes in Middle America, to riots in the streets of Kashmir, the reach of editorial cartooning has never been more evident.
Moderator: Mike Thompson, Detroit Free Press
Panelists: Joe Szabo, editor, Witty World Magazine; Iranian cartoonist Nik Kowsar; Flemming Rose, cultural editor at the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten
It was an interesting panel to wake up to, and it was a kick to see a few other people I knew in the audience. I'll be checking the C-Span schedule to see if it's rerun. Chances are there will be other events from the con that will be on. I hope that the AAEC site may have some video in coming days.
UPDATE: More convention coverage this afternoon beginning at 12:30pm EST. You can view a live stream of C-Span broadcasts at its Web site. Here are the 2 sessions that will run back to back:
