Reporter Shadid Dies in Syria

Newswise would like to recognize Anthony Shadid for his exceptional courage and dedication to his work as a journalist. Shadid passed away while on assignment, under cover, in Syria. 

One of Shadid’s recent stories about the uprising in Syria before he had his fatal allergic reaction: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/15/world/middleeast/syria-in-deep-crisis-may-be-slipping-out-of-control.html

In times of upheaval and instability in far-off parts of the world, great reporting often requires great sacrifices.  Newswise commends the work of Shadid, and all journalists that are dedicated to covering important news events as they unfold, especially when it involves risking life and limb. 

Let us know your opinions about Shadid’s work, the events happening in Syria, or mention other reporters that have risked their lives to get the story.  You can email us at (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
