Underground

I caught this program online the other night and was blown away (click here to watch the entire program):

 

Watch Syria Undercover on PBS. See more from FRONTLINE.

I was impressed by the dedication of the reporter and the level of risk she was willing to take to get the story out, and I told her as much on Twitter.

Any report like this, of course, is only a small part of the story, but when the coverage is so restricted it is wonderful to have someone willing to go where others aren’t. PBS’ Frontline, like NPR’s Poisoned Places series, is an example of excellent investigative reporting in broadcast form. Too rare these days, but stunning when it’s done well. Bravo PBS, eye opening coverage.
