When Trump supporters rioted in the US Capitol on January 6, ITV News’ Washington correspondent, Robert Moore, was in the thick of it. His report was first-hand, brave, open and honest.
The report went viral, applauded widely in the US as well as the UK for its honesty. ITV colleague Piers Morgan wrote that he “perfectly captured the anarchical horror of it all”. CNN’s Kate Bolduan described it as a “pretty astonishing eyewitness report”, while NBC News’ chief global correspondent Bill Neely said it was the “finest piece of the day by far”.
On Sunday 17, ITV and Uncommon ran a print ad commending Moore’s journalism.
The print ad from Uncommon reads:
On the 6th of January this year, in the corridors of the Capitol, windows were broken.
Doors were smashed. Reporters assaulted. Lives were lost.
‘This is exactly what was feared. But in no way is this a surprise,’ says a voice, calm in the chaos.
The voice of ITV News journalist, Robert Moore.
And we saw the truth in the Capitol that day, because he did…
…and it leaves its readers with a rousing message, If the world can see, the world can change.
