Insane moment, I've always very amazed at these reporters, like they put themselves in danger just so the world will know the truth and the real world.

I've had my fill of CNN in the last week. I had no idea they still did journalism. Perhaps this is why this guy got left in the middle of the fight? This network should just call it selves a real housewives show with all the bickering and loud talk.

Just look and use common sense. It is right in your face yet she says the complete opposite. Learn something today

Love how she needed to get out a tank and peek from behind another tank while filmed from the same tank she just got out of...... And the gernade hitting the man and scratching up his sunglasses yet his eye is hurt, priceless.

The bad thing about this is situation is that it comes with the job. Being a reporter and trying to get the best story sometimes takes you into some dangerous places. There have been many reporters killed and kidnapped during wars.

It seems ridiculous to put yourself in harms way just for a story that will be forgotten the next day.

As unfortunate as this is, we need to remember that journalism, especially photographic journalism, that goes into areas of war also go into areas of extreme poverty and violence. There is something quite haunting about taking photos of certain situations and not being able to interfere, or not knowing if you should as a journalist. For instance, take a look at South Africa's Bang Bang Club ; a group of journalists who went into the townships and took award winning photographs during the last bit of apartheid. These journalists took photographs of extremely violent and terrible things, while being in close enough range to step in or try and do something about it. Kevin Carter actually committed suicide eventually after taking the famous photo of a starving Sundanese child being eyed by a vulture. This photo won the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography and is such a monumental piece of journalism all over the world, in terms of his career, he succeeded and became a world famous journalist, yet , his inability to help the child led to a tragic death. He was not able to celebrate or even enjoy what he had accomplished.

So yes, it really is unfortunate that one of the risks involved in this field of work is your life, yet I cant help but give attention to the thousands of deaths that are photographed as a job requirement.

Inside the protected vehicles, stowing away with families in houses, Arwa Damon kept notes in the midst of the warmth of the fight. Here is her record, with infrequent solid dialect. It has been daintily altered for clarity.
