Letter: CNN in Belgrade
Thursday 15 July 1999
Nor was anything unusual about the proposed Larry King interview. Throughout the months of hostilities, CNN maintained a standing invitation to Yugoslavian officials to discuss the issues of the conflict, by telephone or satellite broadcast. Serbian Information Minister Vucic, despite the dangerous environment, agreed to a satellite television interview with CNN's Larry King Live for 22 April. The article's claim that Vucic escaped death by mere minutes is wrong; the minister's representatives cancelled that interview 12 hours in advance of the scheduled programme.
Also incorrect, Fisk's reporting that the Larry King Live programme is produced by the entertainment division. CNN does not have an entertainment division; we are a global news network.
