Your Questions for George Clooney

By NICHOLAS KRISTOF

We in the news media aren’t always very good at covering issues of global disease like malaria, which kills about 850,000 people every year (about one every 38 seconds). But we’re amazingly proficient at covering celebrities. So when a marquee name is stricken with malaria, this is great news for the media…although, admittedly, not so great news for the celebrity in question. This is where I introduce you to my former travel buddy, who recently contracted malaria while on a trip to Sudan: George Clooney.

Nicholas Kristof and George Clooney, who have both contracted malaria in Africa, experiencing happier and healthier times in Chad, 2009.
