FNC’s ‘War Stories’ a Tribute to Marie Colvin

Tonight Fox News presents a 2004 edition of “War Stories with Oliver North” as a special tribute to journalist Marie Colvin, who died last week covering the Syrian civil war. The one-hour program features an interview with Colvin in which she talks about how she got into war reporting and the violence she’s seen along the way. “War correspondents have to be able to deal with absolutely everything,” she says. The special delves into the history of war reporting in interviews with Pulitzer Prize winners Eddie Adams and Nick Ut, as well as News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch who talks about his father’s work as a journalist during WWI. Colvin worked for the News Corp.-owned Sunday Times.

“War Stories with Oliver North: Deadlines on the Battlefield” airs tonight on FNC at 9pmET/PT.

Maybe not safely, but she makes it out. And I was just so shocked that she didn’t this time.” Watch:
