Pedro Rubén Brieger (born 5 November 1955, Buenos Aires, Argentina)[1] is an Argentine journalist and sociologist who holds the Chair of Sociology in Middle East in the University of Buenos Aires. He worked in different newspapers like Clarín, El Cronista, La Nación, Página/12, Perfil and Miami Herald; and magazines like Noticias, Tres Puntos, Revista Veintitrés and Le Monde diplomatique.[2]

In August 2006 he reported that Canal Siete, the channel where his program was being broadcast, had received pressure from the Israeli ambassador Rafael Eldad, because of its coverage of the military conflict in Middle East. Although the diplomatic denied these statements,[3] the Union Press Workers of Buenos Aires issued a statement where they expressed solidarity with Brieger, considering "unacceptable the expressions of the Ambassador Eldad".

In August 2009 he received the Martín Fierro Award as the best male journalistic labour on TV, during 2008.[4] In May 2010 he received again the same prize.[5]
