AP reports CBS's response to the arrest of their cameraman in Iraq
In a statement released Friday, CBS News said the man had worked as a freelancer for CBS for three months and that he was videotaping for the network when he was shot.No doubt they'd love to be the ones to break the story.
"It is common practice in Iraq for Western news organizations to hire local cameramen in places considered too dangerous for Westerners to work effectively. The very nature of their work often puts them in the middle of very volatile situations," the statement said.
"CBS News continues to investigate the situation, and when more information becomes available, we will report it."
I'm sure CBS' 60 Minutes is on top of this story and The Dan has already asked his secretary to make...er, I mean, take a memo on the subject.Posted by Tim Sumner at April 9, 2005 11:43 PM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(1) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
