Freedom Means Exclusives For Everyone

HLN’s Robin Meade sat down with the three freed American hostages earlier today, but yesterday’s “former hostage get” was one-time Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt who was held along with the Americans.

Ann Curry sat down with Betancourt in Paris, and parts of her “exclusive” interview aired last night on NBC Nightly News and this morning on Today.

More than two hours later, Larry King‘s interview with Betancourt aired on CNN. It too was labeled “exclusive.”

Robin Meade First with Interview of Three Freed American Hostages

Headline News anchor Robin Meade has scored the first interview with the three Americans held captive in a Colombian jungle for five years.

Keith Stansell, Thomas Howes and Marc Gonsalves, were all freed during a daring rescue operation last Wednesday.

We’re told Meade is in San Antonio conducting the interview today, with portions to air tonight on Headline News and on CNN and on her HLN program, Morning Express tomorrow morning.

The Colombian military rescued the three men and 12 Colombian captives from the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. Another former hostage, one-time Colombian presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt, did interviews yesterday with NBC’s Ann Curry and with CNN’s Larry King.
