A month ago, two foreign journalists were killed in Syria while they were reporting about Syria’s internal violence conflicts. In recent years, there were more reporters being killed while they were working at the frontline, especially in the Arab world (after the Arab Spring since 2010-after+since is confusing choose one).


Yet, David Schlesinger, chairman of Thomson Reuters China, disagrees with those journalists who put their lives at risk. “No story is worth a life,”he said in an assembly in Shue Yan University on Tuesday, March 27, 2012.


He said that working as a journalist can be a very dangerous job. It can (cause-wrong word-edit) reporters’ freedom or even their lives. Schlesinger recalled that years ago he lost six reporters in Iraq. He added that he would rather let the reporters miss the stories instead of putting them (in-at) risk.


Besides, Schlesinger also mentioned that some of his colleagues had been put into prison after reporting in mainland China. He was told by the Chinese government that their news had “hurt the feeling of the Chinese people”. Hence, the website of Thomson Reuters is being blocked from mainlanders’ access.


Lastly, Schlesinger said that although journalists face many difficulties, they should always report the news as long as it is true and fair.

Good story/focus.
