The Washington Post published the final column from Jamal Khashoggi on Thursday. Although the newspaper's editor said she had hoped to edit the piece jointly with Khashoggi himself, she "has to accept" that that won't happen. The column emphasizes Khashoggi's passion for freedom of the press in the Arab world. Nick Schifrin speaks with longtime columnist Hisham Melhem for more on the story.
