Courageous journalism: Yahoo! News

There's a post by Mindy McAdams at Teaching Online Journalism: Courageous journalism: Yahoo! News about the 2006 Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism being
"awarded to Kevin Sites. In case you (and your students) don't know about Sites, he's one of those "backpack journalists" that some old-school newsroom types might scoff at ("No one can do it all"). He's got a video camera, a satellite phone and an Apple Powerbook in his backpack (you can read all about Sites's gear), and since Oct. 1, 2005, he has been on assignment for Yahoo! News in Congo, Uganda, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq. This week he's in Afghanistan."
