CNN’s Whitaker On Decision to Use Ambassador’s Journal: ‘There was a legitimate national interest in pursuing the questions of a possible terrorist threat’
CNN Worldwide managing editor Mark Whitaker appeared on CNN/U.S. to talk about the journal of Ambassador Christopher Stevens found in the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Whitaker explained how CNN found the journal (correspondent Arwa Damon found it in the consulate), and the process it went through to inform the family of its existence (the family requested it back, and that no personal details revealed), and how CNN decided to use information found in it. Soledad O’Brien conducted the interview:
