Final Answer

Journalists are at risk and have a dangerous job to do when they are in another country. Recently there have been many journalists captured and killed in Afghanistan and Libya which both places are very dangerous to visit at the moment. The question many Americans ask is why would they risk their lives? Is it worth dying to cover war when they may risk of never returning? What do we learn from reporters is what people ask today? I feel it is their passion and love their careers and also at the same time they feel obligated to tell the world whats really going when there is a crisis situation involving a war like now between the US and Afghanistan.
