Remembering Two Splendid Journalists - American Journalism Review

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
She lost her life on February 22, along with French photojournalist Remi Ochlik, 28, when the Syrian army shelled the makeshift media center where they were working. Colvin was from Oyster Bay, New York, and a Yale University graduate. When journalists cross into conflict zones, they are vulnerable on every front, from religious fanatics, armed militants, criminals and government forces to unforeseen and unpredictable threats. Shadid, 43, was captured and beaten by Muammar Gaddafi's forces during the fighting in Libya last year. In 2002, he was wounded in the West Bank. But, it wasn't a bullet that ultimately took him down. On February 16, the reporter died of an asthma attack while covering the armed insurrection in Syria for the New York Times. He reportedly had an allergy to horses and may have reacted to animals used by smugglers who helped sneak him and Times photographer Tyler Hicks across the border. They were leading them back out when his breathing became labored. Hicks administered CPR for 30 minutes, to no avail. Shadid talked to me about the importance of taking calculated risks.

You can listen to what the people are saying and feeling and thinking, or you can report from a press briefing. It depends on how much you want to be the eyes and ears of a story," he said as he walked toward a bookcase. He returned with a dog-eared copy of Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski's "Shah of Shahs," depicting the final years of Iran's Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who was toppled in 1979, and the buildup to the revolution. The foreign correspondent had covered civil wars, revolutions and social conditions in Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. Shadid read the book in college and found it "an inspiration" for his life's work. "His writing is evocative, very sparse," he said as he settled down on the couch and began paging through the slim volume, pointing one of his favorite passages. Asked why Christmas decorations were still hanging over the mantle in March, he replied, "Because Laila likes them there." His home was a shrine to the Ara...
