Amazing correspondents and cameramen

  1. Aug 23, 2011 #1
    This thread is dedicated to all correspondents and cameramen who risk their lives to give us a window to the troubled/dangerous parts of the world.

    I was impressed watching videos of BBC correspondents Orla Guerin and Rupert Wingfield-Hayes.

    Orla Guerin on the front lines in Libya

    BBC reporter (Rupert Wingfield-Hayes) in Cairo was handcuffed and blindfolded

    I have been seeing lots of videos from Rupert Wingfield-Hayes on BBC lately.

    Few others I could think of are Charlie Cole, Stuart Franklin, Jeff Widener, and Arthur Tsang Hin Wah (http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/06/03/behind-the-scenes-tank-man-of-tiananmen/) who captured the tank man incident.

    I wonder if such on the spot reporting helps or hurts the indigenous people? Probably a bit of both, I think.
