Michael Ware Leaves CNN Officially


When last we heard from studly, broken-nosed CNN correspondent Michael Ware, he was taking some time off from reporting in Iraq to write a book — and to deal with the ugly lingering effects of the PTSD he’d developed from his experiences covering the war zone. Two years before that, he was making headlines for a steamy Green Zone affair he allegedly conducted with CBS correspondent Lara Logan (who is currently dealing with psychological trauma relating to her own recent brutal experiences in the Middle East). Now, it turns out Ware won’t return to CNN after his book leave. He’s got something big planned, more than just the book, AllThingsCNN reports. For the past year and a half, he’s been hiding out in Williamsburg, right here in New York.
