* In the second ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' game, reporter Elena Fisher and her cameraman Jeff pursue Lazarevic, a rouge general with an entire army under his command, into a war zone by themselves, resulting in Jeff getting killed. Though Elena is armed and fairly competent with a gun, bringing some cops or security guards with them probably would have been a good idea.

* ''Film/TheNightFlier'': Richard Dees is a scummy tabloid report who continues to investigate a series of murders at country airports even when it seems increasingly likely that the killer is a monster of some sort. [[spoiler:The vampire finally murders him after noting that coming face to face with a real monster is the culmination of Dees's existence.]]

* In ''Film/DieHard2'', reporter Samantha Coleman helps John chase the villains making their getaway in her news helicopter. Yes, she is revealed as a genuinely nice lady who genuinely wants to help, but the fact she is getting a a spectacular exclusive of McClane stopping the villains at some personal risk is some incentive too.

* Lois Lane in the [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation Golden Age]] [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheatricalCartoons Superman cartoon shorts]]. ''Always''. She's not much different in the Franchise/{{DCAU}} either. Deconstructed in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanDoomsday'', in which Lois' grief at the death of Superman sees her begin to turn this tendency to DeathSeeker levels; Perry White notes darkly at one point that she's still throwing herself recklessly into dangerous situations but Superman isn't around to pull her chestnuts out of the fire anymore.

-->'''[[Series/TheRachelMaddowShow Rachel Maddow]]''': One of the seams of our modern world runs through Iraq. That means that when our world starts to fall apart at the seams, it usually means that Iraq is one of the first places to start unraveling. And when that happens, one thing you can set your watch by is that NBC`s Richard Engel will be there in the middle of it so he can show the world what it looks like and sounds like from the middle of the unraveling.

* Creator/{{NBC}} News' Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel has spent most of his life since the mid-90s living in the Middle East and spends even more time in a bulletproof vest than Anderson Cooper. He's repeatedly worked as a military embed, got himself into Iraq in 2002 under the Saddam regime (with questionable legality), and is widely considered the foremost expert journalist on Middle East affairs in all of the news business. Not without reason [[http://thedailybanter.com/2014/07/surprise-surprise-greenwald-wrong-nbc-pulled-egyptian-american-reporter-gaza/ has he been called]] "NBC News’s widely recognized, highly respected, globe-trotting, bullet-dodging dreamboat."
