Why the pro journalists deserve our respect

The bloggers love to pick on the main stream journalists. But, that changed today for me.

The NPPA put up the best of television photojournalism awards. That’s nice, and worth watching. But check out the Judge’s Choice Award. Be ready. It is graphic. Beyond Words: Photographers of War. It’s not easy to watch. The guy who sent it to me said he watched it three times because it is so moving.

I’m taking the rest of the day off trying to catch up my life (tons of email waits, and tons of things Maryam has me doing). Today belongs to the pros.

My hat is off to the pros. Thanks for bringing us the uncomfortable stuff around the world and for putting your lives on the line.
