    The Wall Street Journal reported on the Stephanopoulos scandal on Friday, and found another national TV anchor in the database. “Judy Woodruff, the co-anchor and managing editor of PBS NewsHour, gave $250 in 2010 to the foundation’s aid efforts for victims of the Haiti earthquake.” She was a senior correspondent then, before Jim Lehrer retired. Woodruff initially recalled the donation as being for $1,000, but based the $250 amount as the one on her 2010 tax return. Woodruff tried to make it sound bipartisan: “I made the gift in response to an urgent joint appeal from former President Clinton and...

    Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been facing criticism and scorn from some media members for having the audacity to mildly criticize President Obama and some administration officials while Obama is still in office. On Tuesday, Gates appeared on the PBS NewsHour to face another round of questioning about his newly released memoir. Midway through the interview, anchor Judy Woodruff suggested that the former defense secretary could lower morale among troops on the ground overseas:

    I’d been sitting in David Westin’s office yesterday for about 10 minutes – I’d been invited by for an informal chat – when I saw a familiar face at the ABC News president’s door. “How you doing?” asked Bob Woodruff. “You going back to Michigan for the holidays? I’m staying put.” Momentarily speechless--in part from choking up-- yet grinning like a kid on Christmas morning, I managed to say hello. Almost a year since Woodruff and his cameraman Doug Vogt nearly lost their lives covering the Iraq War and there was the ABC newsman, who grew up near me in...

    Charlie Gibson will become the "temporary permanent replacement" for ABC's Bob Woodruff, the New York Post's Cindy Adams says. "Translation: If and when Woodruff, who this week is on his feet and talking, is ready to be back playing anchor man -- he gets it. That is not expected to be this year. But when and if, it's his again." In the meantime, Gibson will co-anchor World News Tonight. "He very much wants this job and out of morning TV. The man's done enough cooking segments to last two lifetimes," Adams says, adding that "ABC will announce Gibson soon." ABC...

    We realize that our family is going through something that thousands of military families have experienced over the last three years since the war began and throughout our history. Bob's name may be more recognizable but his story is no more important. He would be the first to insist that the attention should be focused on the members of the U.S. military whose heroic actions he has reported on for years.

    THE TROOPS HAVE IT RIGHT Interesting observation from some of our troops in Iraq today. By now you know that ABC World News Tonight anchor Bob Woodruff and his cameraman were injured a few days ago in a roadside bombing in Iraq. They've been transported back to the United States, where they are expected to eventually make a full recovery. Our prayers go out to them and their families as we wish them a speedy recovery. But some aren't so thrilled with all of the media coverage Woodruff and his colleague are getting. It seems the rank and file are...

    New York, NEW YORK "World News Tonight" anchor Bob Woodruff and cameraman Doug Vogt left Germany Tuesday on a military plane bound for the United States, where they will receive further treatment for their injuries from a bomb blast in Iraq. A C-17 medical evacuation plane took off from the U.S. base at Ramstein on Tuesday afternoon carrying the two journalists and 28 U.S. service personnel, including several others hurt in Iraq. Woodruff was showing signs of improvement Monday as a reeling ABC News division was coming to grips with what his injuries mean for the future of the recently...

    Have you heard about the latest tragedy from Iraq? If you haven’t, you soon will. And if you haven’t, you surely haven’t been paying attention. A journalist and cameraman have been injured. I’ll pause to let the gravity of that set in. All over the MSM this weekend and this morning is the story of how an ABC newsman, Bob Woodruff, and his cameraman, Doug Vogt, sustained injuries after an encounter with a roadside bomb. Curiously absent from the accounts though, is any mention of SOLDIERS who were impacted by the incident. And therein lies the basis for my vitriol....

    Bob Woodruff had a comfortable career in corporate law ahead of him when he took a year away to teach in China. It was 1989, the year of the Tiananmen Square protest, and amid the chaos, Woodruff discovered his passion for journalism. He was reporting from of another volatile part of the world on Sunday, this time as the 44-year-old co-anchor of ABC News' "World News Tonight," when an explosive device detonated, seriously injuring him and a cameraman north of Baghdad, Iraq. Woodruff grew up in the Detroit area and attended Colgate University and the University of Michigan law school...

    The pro-terrorist Al Jazeera International will debut early next year as a 24-hour English-language news network headquartered in the Middle East. And efforts to bring the network to the U.S. have been "very interesting and extremely encouraging,” according to Commercial Director Lindsey Oliver. At launch the network will have a staff of "hundreds,” said Oliver, a former director of CNBC Europe. The advertising-supported network will operate out of four broadcast centers – Washington, London, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia - and Doha, Qatar, its headquarters. The international version of Al Jazeera, which has been accused by Washington of having an anti-American,...

    CNN's Judy Woodruff will anchor Judy Woodruff's Inside Politics for the final time today (Friday) as she departs the network and CNN begins the process of shutting down Crossfire and phasing out Inside Politics, all to be replaced by a 3-6pm EDT block hosted by Wolf Blitzer. To mark Woodruff's departure, the MRC's Rich Noyes collated a collection of some of Woodruff's bias over the years, as documented in the MRC's Notable Quotables. My nomination for her most egregious instance of liberal bias: Anchoring NewsNight on May 15, 2002, she opened the newscast with this ludicrous exaggeration: "We begin with...
