Ward’s Baby: The Back Story

A couple of reporters for The Washington Times had a hectic day yesterday. It all started when the White House announced a surprise press conference by the president. With senior White House correspondent Joseph Curl having just moved to the presidential campaigns, that left Jon Ward to cover the presser.

But Curl got an e-mail from the White House asking if he’d be at the event. No, he said back, Ward’ll be there. But then another White House message came back: “Don’t think Ward can make it this time. Looks like his wife is having the baby.”

A flurry of phone calls followed; Curl was across town covering Rudy Giuliani, who was speaking at the Club for Growth meeting at the Grand Hyatt. Ward was heading to the doctor with his wife, Ali, and then, it turned out, over to the hospital. Curl got there in time, and even got a question in to the president.
