Murray Waas: Profile of an Intrepid Reporter
There's a great profile of Murray Waas in US News.com -- I'm so glad to see his great reporting be acknowledged.
With the publication in recent months of his news-breaking stories on the Bush administration's involvement in manipulating prewar Iraq intelligence - particularly its attempt to discredit former Ambassador Joseph Wilson and to out his CIA operative wife, Valerie Plame - Waas has gotten a sometimes bitter taste of what he refers to as his "five minutes of fame." He's now dealing not only with sources and editors but also pesky cable television bookers who never get the answer they want and new interest in his personal and professional life.
Murray explains why he won't go on tv. But my favorite quote is this:
