Wolf In New York

wolf_blitzer_bush_un.jpgWolf Blitzer is in New York today to speak at a Reuters event (he’s a Reuters alum, apparently). Wolf explains:

The reason I’m in New York is, I’m speaking tonight to some of my friends at Reuters, the wire service — the first job I ever got in journalism was working for Reuters. They’ve invited me to speak tonight and I’m happy to go back as an alum.

KYRA PHILLIPS: Do you remember your first story?

BLITZER: I remember everything. The first story was a really bad one, but I stuck with it and here I am today.

PHILLIPS: Did the copy get all torn up? Did you have to rewrite it six times?

BLITZER: It was hundreds of words, and they finally approved 20 of them.

PHILLIPS: Wolf is making up everything you just heard right now!

BLITZER: No, no, this is the truth. They really ripped it apart, as it should have been.

PHILLIPS: Now look at you, Wolf. You’re rich and famous.

BLITZER: Something like that.
