Barbara Walters Will Get Attribution

Many networks get touchy about their “exclusives.” In their releases they put orders in all caps, saying things like, “YOU MUST CREDIT…”

Today ABC News goes a step further on Barbara Walters‘s genuinely exclusive interview with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. For the morons out there who don’t know how to give credit (and some organizations obviously have trouble with this) they show you just exactly how it’s done: “News organizations using this material must credit ABC News and Barbara Walters (i.e. in an interview with ABC News’ Barbara Walters, President Al-Assad said…).”

Portions of the Walters interview appeared on “GMA” this morning and will air across ABC platforms on “The View” at 11 .am. and tonight on “World News Tonight With Diane Sawyer” at 6:30 p.m.
