Lara Logan mourns Marie Colvin, who died in Syria Wednesday:
“You couldn’t be part of the foreign media world and travel to these places and not know who Marie Colvin was,” Logan observed. “She was a legend in her own right and a pioneer in many ways. As a woman, she started to do this work a long, long time ago when it was more of a man’s world than it still is today, in some ways. And Marie was — this was her life. She was completely committed to doing what she believed in. You hear that in her words and in her reporting, just hours before she was killed. It was always about that for her. It was about bearing witness and giving a voice to the people that don’t have one. And she said, so significantly, you know, if you’re not on the ground to witness what was really happening in Homs, then the Syrian government could write whatever narrative they wanted to write and there would be no counter narrative to that.”
