Is It Worth It?

Americans want their news fast, accurate, and accessible but are we thinking about the reporters who go out of their way to deliver this such news? There are many brave reporters who go through high risks to get a story, but where are the boundaries? Through out history, there have been incidents reported where this risk taking reporters have been abused, beaten, captured, sexually assaulted and killed while attempting to shoot a great story.

My question is, is it worth it?

February 11th, the Egyptian President stepped down and reporter, Lara Logan was covering the story. In the mist of the celebration in the streets of Cairo, Logan was sexually assaulted and beaten. A group of women and 20 Egyptian soldiers finally got to her and rushed her to a hospital.

Logan is known for taking risks and shooting good stories but this risk has turned into a tragedy.
