MTV concert clip

If you saw the MTV concert, you know they showed a section of Michael's full report/follow-up with David Bellavia; the full report will be shown as part of the special that airs tomorrow night. CNN has already posted the full report online, so rather than convert the section (with the crazy MTV banner info) I thought I'd just embed the clip. I'll pull the TV version tomorrow and post that, though.

New book title, back to Baghdad, and an MTV event

Hachette Australia has advised Sharon that the title for Michael's book is now planned to be Between Me and the Dead, and the release is listed for late 2009. (I have a feeling that is what would be called a "soft" date...)

Press release time:

“A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE” will air Friday, October 24, 2008, at 8pm ET on MTV, followed by airings on MTV2, mtvU and MTV Tr3s…
The special will also include an interview with CNN international correspondent Michael Ware, via satellite from Baghdad.
“Anderson Cooper 360: Back from the Battle,” hosted by Cooper, will highlight the challenges facing young vets returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan…
CNN’s Baghdad-based correspondent Michael Ware reunites with a soldier he followed into the battle of Fallujah to see how much of the war in Iraq he has brought home with him.

Full clips from the panel

I finally got the full clips from Michael's panel at last week's Presidential debate posted. (No, I'm not doing the transcripts for them!)
