No mere blogger ever risked his/her/its neck like “some correspondents do”:http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/21/world/asia/21taliban.html.
Something to remember.
Update. Yes, “neck”:http://www.danielpearl.org/. I didn’t intend that, but it seems to fit.
Indeed…another reason why blogs will not supplant traditional media outlets, unless, of course, those outlets end the role of foreign correspondents.
