Anthony Shadid, 1968-2012
Friday, February 17, 2012
Anthony Shadid of The New York Times was the consummate foreign correspondent. For years he peopled his Middle East coverage with both the news and the people who the news is visited upon; people who are rarely brought to life. He was intrepid, but always in the service of stories that made us care deeply about the region. Shadid died this week. Brooke revisits the last conversation she had with him.
