* 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."

* 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 Freshly graduated from Stanford, he took off for Cairo with nothing more than $2000 (not even a basic knowledge of Arabic!) and a yearning to "ride the train of history" in the very front seat. Since then he has repeatedly worked as a military embed, got himself into Iraq in 2002 under the Saddam regime (with questionable legality), and is was the last American correspondent left in Baghdad for the duration of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He is, with excellent reason, widely considered the foremost expert journalist on Middle East affairs in all of the news business.

* Ben Bertolucci of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' is another subversion. He came to Raccoon City to get the dirt on what's happening to the town, but once he learns that it's falling apart under a small-scale ZombieApocalypse and he's trapped there, he gives up on chasing the story, locks himself in a jail cell, and refuses to leave until everything blows over. [[spoiler:Or blows up, which [[DeathByGenreSavviness he doesn't live to see anyway]].]]

* 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.
