A couple of days old, but meh.

ON April Fools' Day a story appeared on news website The Drudge Report that Michael Ware, CNN's Baghdad reporter, had heckled Republican senator John McCain during a press conference. The report has sparked several days of anti and pro-Ware comment on blogs, and several rebuttals on CNN.

"An official at the press conference called Ware's conduct 'outrageous', saying, 'Here you have two United States senators in Baghdad giving first-hand reports while Ware is laughing and mocking their comments," The Drudge Report said on April 1. "I've never witnessed such disrespect. This guy is an activist, not a reporter."

Ware is an Australian reporter who has filed from Afghanistan to Iraq, famously for Time and now for CNN. His broad Australian accent and forthright style infuriates some Americans, and he has become a target of the Right. He may have put off some supporters of the war in Iraq when he said on air: "I've been given a front-row ticket to watch this slow-motion train wreck. I try to stay as drunk for as long as possible while I'm here. In fact, I'm drinking now."

Video footage of the press conference proved that Ware did not heckle Senator McCain. He didn't even speak.

He is back in Baghdad after, I believe, six months out.

Good I think he's a terrific reporter and he also has that Loose Cannon quality about him that makes him stand out. :D

He reminds me of Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon. :lol:

I don't think he really is such a 'loose gun' but his way of reporting does seem to differ quite a bit from that of other CNN reporters. Must be the Aussie style of journalism.

Something I read in his Wikipedia-article:

In August 2008, publisher Hachette Australia will publish Foreign Correspondent, Ware's first book.


I may read that when it is released.

I run a website that archives Michael's work, and I was asked to write up a bio of him for the "All Things Anderson" and "All Things CNN" blogs. If anyone is interested, you can read it here.

:) Hi everyone,
This is my first post at this site. I'm a big fan of Michael Ware. Today he started reporting on CNNI for the Rugby World Cup games and will continue until the Final game. Unfortunately, I can't get CNNI in California. Does anyone have any suggestions of how I could see Michael's reports?
Kind regards,
MWmcFan

Damn suprising :shock: :shock: :shock: to learn that Michael Ware actually used to play Rugby with one of the members of the Australian team, amazing really. What a turn up and maybe Rugby is what gave him his broken nose. Was great to hear his take on the tournament though I look forward to more of his reporting.

Michael Ware's reporting can be found here but you probably already know about it.

Thank you Spitfire for the link, I hadn't seen that video yet. This morning on YWT (which is the only CNNI program we get on the West Coast) Hala & Michael H. did a wonderful interview with Mick about the games and life outside of Iraq. I hope it will be posted on one of the sites: http://ware-abouts.mickware.info/ I also keep checking youtube. :D

Spitfire, his former teammate coaches the Fiji team, his former coach John Connolly is the Wallabies coach, and he said there are even former teammates playing this weekend!

I will definitely get the YWT piece posted, MWmcFan!

And CNN has his report from this morning up, as well. So great to see him laughing and having fun! This is a very low-tech screengrab from it, just look at that grin!

I love it when someone is passionate about something, it can be anything flower arranging, ballet dancing, butterfly collecting or anything else. Michael has this passion about Rugby his reports are great to watch. There is no regular sports reporter at CNN who could have done a better job, they would have just gone through the motions. Sending Warey to France was a damn good idea. :D :D :D

I have been really impressed by Michael's excellent rugby reporting too. I've already posted these caps in the Ralitsa thread, but I'll put them here too since we seem to have quite a few Michael Ware fans. That said, I think Michael is better to watch than to look at caps of, but here they are anyway :D :

I've been slacking on posting my screengrabs over here, but here are a few. Also, all of Michael's reports from France are available on my site. (Not today's yet, though; my Parisian supplier is currently at the Trocadéro, looking for the man himself.)

I guess it is a good break for him from the stories of Iraq. Good to see him doing some sports. And by the way, I have no clue how to play rugby, can anybody tell me the rules? :lol:

I don't understand a thing about rugby, but Michael's enthusiasm about it is almost contagious. CNNI did well in sending him doing the cover of the Rugby World Cup. Only a real enthusiast, like him, could generate some curiosity about a game that isn't that popular.
I like Michael Ware. Not only he is a great reporter but he seems to a very fine person as well. I real like the sense of modesty that emanates from him. :D

I have heard precious little from Warey since he returned to Iraq I suppose that could be a sign that there's a lull over there. What I love about him is he manages never, ever to sound dull. Robertson, Chance and Penhaul take note.
