Dear Blog Readers — By now most of you probably know about the attack last Friday in Afghanistan on two women working for the Associated Press, killing Pulitizer-Prize winning photographer Anja Niedringhaus and seriously wounding veteran correspondent Kathy Gannon. It has taken me a few days to want to write a post and even now I am not sure what to say. These women are my heroines. They are the people I admire more than anyone else in the business. They go to places where few other journalists want to go, they try to minimize the risks and over and over again tell stories to the rest of the world that no one would know about otherwise. The AP does not pay huge, super-star salaries— people like Anja and Kathy do it out of passion for journalism, a desire to be there, to see for themselves, a yearning to tell the story to the rest of the world with pictures and words. The world needs more journalists like Anja and Kathy.
