Russian site launches smear campaign against CNN's Clarissa Ward

CNN's Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward is being targeted by a Russian propaganda outfit for her months-long investigation uncovering Putin's secret private army in the Central African Republic. Ward tells John Avlon that when she noticed her team was being followed, "that really was deeply disconcerting, because it was just a year ago that three Russian journalists who were pursuing the same story about... Russian mercenary activity in the Central African Republic were actually ambushed and killed." She says, "While this [smear campaign] may have been just about intimidation, it certainly also gave us real pause for thought and concern about our safety as well. And it hasn't stopped."
