“We always have to ask ourselves whether the level of risk is worth the story.”  Marie Covin, Journalist killed in Syria


Journalists have been portrayed by many as vultures, gadflies and worse, and rightly so in many cases.  However, journalists can be the biggest threat to evildoers such as Assad regime, who want to operate in darkness.

I think the acts of being with the oppressed, watching, and reporting are collectively an act of caring.  And an act of fighting.  Many journalists are heroes whose voices wouldn’t be silenced even by the threat of death.

Journalists like Daniels, Bouvier, Ochlik and Colvin have been the primary means by which the world even knows what is going on there.   Syria is far more isolated and repressed than Iran or Egypt, and few people can film, tweet or e-mail evidence of what they are seeing and experiencing.  That is the reason the Assad regime is deliberately targeting journalists.  — Richard Stengel, Managing Editor of Time
