Paul Jay of The Real News

Paul Jay is the CEO and Senior Editor of The Real News Network. 9/11 and the Iraq war were turning points in history and it had an irreversible effect in Paul Jay's life. Alarmed by the inability of major media to ask the underlying questions, Paul decided to combine his film and television experience and his quest to know the undercurrents of news to build an independent television network. Three years later IWT - The Real News is on it's way. Paul is an internationally acclaimed, award winning filmmaker whose films include Return To Kandahar, Hitman Hart: Wrestling with Shadows, Lost in Las Vegas, and Never-Endum-Referendum. Paul was the Executive Producer of counterSpin - Canada's flagship debate show on CBC Newsworld, for a decade. He was also the Founding Chair of the Hot Docs International Festival (Toronto), now the largest in North America. www.therealnews.com
