Judy Woodruff Part II by Mitch E. Perry10/20/06
Judy Woodruff has worked for NBC, PBS and CNN, before semi-retiring last year.
But now sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s back in broadcast news, filing reports on AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s youth for the Lehrer News Hour on PBS, and just yesterday, on National Public RadioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Morning Edition.
For several years, Woodruff was the host of CNNÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Inside Politics, a series look at the political scene, and a reason why CNN used to be considered the finest choice in cable news. But the network has continued to lose what is termed Ã¢â‚¬Ëœmarket shareÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ to Fox News, and has devoted hours to Michael Jackson, Jon Benet Ramsey and other stories that are hardly considered Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhard newsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. In the 2nd part of an interview conducted yesterday, WMNF asked Judy Woodruff her thoughts about cable news these days (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?politician of their choiceÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s longtime broadcast journalist Judy Woodruff, speaking to WMNF yesterday. She is currently filing reports for PBSÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Newshour with Jim Lehrer and NPR
