David speaks with the recently departed New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid. Although this interview was originally recorded in August 2011, it was never aired due to a poor phone connection. However, in light of his death, the interview airs as it was originally recorded in 2011. As a reporter, Shadid went to great risk in order to get the story he was after. In 2003 while covering West Bank violence, Shadid was shot in the shoulder by a member of the Israeli military. In March 2011, Shadid was in a convoy of reporters captured in Libya by government officials. In his most recent trip sneaking into Syria from Turkey to cover the civil unrest in the country, Shadid died as a result of an asthma attack.
