ABC News Sends Ward to Moscow

Oct 4, 2007  •  Post A Comment

ABC News is assigning a correspondent to Moscow for the first time since the network’s 2005 interview with a Chechen rebel resulted in the Russian Foreign Ministry ending accreditation of ABC News employees in Moscow.
Quiet conversations between the network and the Russians led to the bureau reopening this summer.
ABC News on Thursday selected Clarissa Ward, a former Fox News Middle East correspondent, field producer and assignment editor, as its Moscow correspondent. For Ms. Ward, it’s a return to the city in which she began her journalism career as an intern for CNN just a few years ago.

  1. Good. Good to see that Ted Koppel’s interview with Shamil Basayev didn’t cripple ABC’s newsgathering efforts in Russia permanently.
    BTW, deaccrediting ABC shouldn’t have happened to begin with, but blame that on overly sensitive Russian government.

  2. screw abc news

  3. Well isn’t that an insightful comment? Please tell us, o, why should ABC News be screwed? And when you do, how about using proper spelling, capitalization, grammar, punctuation and usage and being clear, concise and detailed in your post? Or can’t you do that because you’re a member of a certain company that starts with “A,” ends with “L” and has “O” in the middle? Go back to your little moron haven with all of your other AOL morons or get a real ISP.
