Media react to severing ties between MSNBC and Tiffany Cross

The widow of a Fox News warzone photographer who was killed in Ukraine earlier this year is demanding answers about her husband’s death.

In March, Pierre Zakrzewski was killed when a vehicle he was traveling in was hit by incoming fire. The incident happened in the Kyiv suburb of Horenka. Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshynova was also killed in the attack. Fox News reporter Benjamin Hall was seriously injured and is still recovering.

According to Washington Post, Michelle Ross-Stanton puts together a comprehensive timeline of Zakrzewski’s death. So far, she’s determined that Zakrzewski, Hall, and Kuvshynova ended up in the village of Horenka via a road that looped around the forbidden city of Irpin.

“I want the truth and I want the whole truth and I want to know exactly what happened,” she said. “It’s not that I don’t trust Fox to give me the right answers, but I don’t trust anyone to give me the answers I want to hear.”

Zakrzewski, Kuvshynova and Hall reportedly traveled with two Ukrainian militia soldiers who had helped two New York Times reporters the day before.

Ross-Stanton told the newspaper she believed a shell had pulverized the shrapnel that had punctured her husband’s femoral artery just below his body armor.

Zakrzewski’s team would have been alone in Horenka and for all other things not with the security team assigned to them by Fox News.

“Standard operating procedure is for security to go with them,” she said. “Why didn’t they do it?” »

The Post spoke with more than 10 correspondents from various news outlets; many said they would have made the same trip and the Fox team had simply accepted the standard degree of reasonable risk that comes with their work.

“We are completely devastated by the deaths of Pierre Zakrzewski and Oleksandra Kuvshynova,” a Fox News spokesperson told Barrett News Media. “Their extraordinary dedication to telling the stories of those affected by the war in Ukraine has brought to light the atrocities that take place there daily – we are eternally grateful for their commitment to journalism and their ultimate sacrifice. We have made everything humanly possible in the wake of this unprecedented tragedy amidst the chaos of a war zone.

“Our plan was for Pierre to retire early, and we were going to go out on our boat and have a dog, a water dog,” she said. “We had so many plans.”
