Lara Logan - Keeping It Real
After watching the documentary Control Room about the media(s) and its coverage of the Iraq Invasion a few years ago, it lead to a profound respect of the things that journalist go through in presenting the real-life situations on the ground which at times or most times is in deep contrast to what the policy makers are saying.
Journalists have a huge responsibility to transmit the truth from the half-truths and are surely the most unpopular bunch of people - as far as politicians are concerned. But perhaps it is in dedication of their professionalism that such paradoxes emerge.
Lara Logan have been covering wars for 15 or so years - and have been bringing in important pieces from Aghanistan and Iraq.
