My old Time pal Michael Ware lands a fine new job:
Michael Ware, the TIME magazine Baghdad bureau chief who gained renown for in-depth coverage of the insurgency in Iraq, will join CNN as a correspondent based in Baghdad, it was announced today by Tony Maddox, senior vice president of international newsgathering operations.
I think at least one other US network was also chasing him. Whatever you make of Ware’s dubious perspectives on Iraq, there’s at least one massive positive here: with Ware in Baghdad, CNN will never revert to Eason Jordan-eraconcerns over government access—for the simple reason that Ware couldn’t care less about government access. Which (generally) is a good thing. I look forward to his coverage of the insurgency’s extinction.
