Dissed by his own network

creditBob Woodward is the Washington Post editor who was not on the 4 o'clock news yesterday on ABC 7. Bob Woodruff is the former ABC News co-anchor, severely injured by a bomb in Iraq, who did appear on the Channel 7 news. You wouldn't have known it, though, from the teaser read by anchor Ellen Leyva: "Also at 4, journalist Bob Woodward and his wife, Lee, in a special interview with Eyewitness News. Will the injured newsman ever go back to Iraq? Find out right after 'Oprah' at 4."
