Bob Woodruff Returns To The Air

For the first time since he suffered massive injuries in Iraq last January, ABC correspondent Bob Woodruff returned to the air Wednesday night to update a report on his visit to North Korea in June 2005. In a statement, ABC announced, "Woodruff recorded a new lead-in and additional lines to his original report via phone from upstate New York." Meanwhile, Dan Rather appeared on Anderson Cooper's show on CNN Wednesday to talk about his own visit to North Korea last year. Somewhat surprisingly, Rather used CBS footage taken during his trip to illustrate his comments on the Cooper show. He showed an elaborate card section of a crowd at a sports stadium, remarking that at first the detail was so spectacular that he thought he was watching a giant television set, adding Rather-esqsue, "I would like to think I didn't just tumble off the turnip truck." While negotiating his exit from CBS, one of the sticking points, according to the reports at the time, was Rather's insistence that he have the right to use archived CBS news footage connected with his reporting.
