Foreign Correspondents React to Death of Marie Colvin

The death of journalist Marie Colvin in Syria continues to resonate in the TV news world, and yesterday a few well-known foreign correspondents shared their thoughts on the situation there, and what it means to cover a war zone.

On “AC360,” Christiane Amanpour talked about the important job that Colvin and others did by bringing attention to the atrocities being committed in Syria.

On “CBS This Morning,” Lara Logan said that she feels “guilty” about Colvin’s death.

“I feel like what Marie was doing, that’s what I was meant to be doing. That I should be there on the ground, as well. And I know that I’m not alone in that feeling.”


Update:
Fox News will televise a 2004 episode of “War Stories with Oliver North” this weekend. That episode features an interview with Colvin.
