President Obama is certainly doing things differently. His first broadcast interview was with Dubai-based Al-Arabiya, one of the most watched TV channels in the Middle East.
Watching it though, there were a few parallels with the past.

Mr Obama’s message to the Muslim world is that America’s now listening.
As an interviewee, not so much.
