How do you think CBS News would cover this if it weren’t about CBS News?
BAGHDAD (AP) – Two CBS News journalists were missing in the predominantly Shiite southern city of Basra, the network said Monday.
CBS said all efforts were under way to find the journalists, who were not identified by the network. It requested “that others do not speculate on the identities of those involved” until more information was available.
“CBS News has been in touch with the families and asks that their privacy be respected,” the network added in a brief statement from its headquarters in New York.
