The Dangers Journalists Face: Denby Fawcett

Denby Fawcett

War  journalism is a dangerous business... especially in Syria. According to The Committee to Protect Journalists, Syria is the most dangerous country in the world for journalists, with at least 70 killed while covering the conflict. Last week, that statistic grew to include James Foley. Reporting from war zones has always been full of peril, but has that danger changed? Former Vietnam war correspondent Denby Fawcett joined the show to take a look.
