Most often, the intrepid reporter is a hero, or at least on the side of the angels. Expect a lot of speeches about "the Truth", "Freedom of the Press" and "the People have a right to know." But they can also be {{Love Interest}}s, antagonists, or even villains. After all, the lure of that [[GoingForTheBigScoop big scoop]] can lead to rushing into danger ([[InHarmsWay not that they all mind that]]), trying to expose secrets the protagonists would rather not have public, or even [[TwistingTheWords fudging the facts]] to make a juicier story.

* At no point in his long career was (now-retired) war correspondent Joe Galloway ever shy about rushing headlong into danger for the sake of a story. Most famous was his conduct at the Battle of Ia Drang during UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar, which was d, Pavlovic created ''Informe Especial''[[note]]Special Report[[/note]]ramatized in the film ''WeWereSoldiers'' (see above). He voluntarily accompanied U.S. Air Cavalry soldiers into a highly active combat zone where they were cut off from ground reinforcements, getting so close to the fighting that at one point it became necessary for him to keep an M-16 on his lap for self-defense, and taking considerable time out from his photography in order to drag wounded men to safety. Some of his photographs of the fighting became the first images many Americans had ever seen of the war in Vietnam. Later in life, his affinity for soldiers led him to become [[http://original.antiwar.com/author/galloway/ ferociously critical]] of shortsighted politicians who sacrificed soldiers' lives for what he believed were frivolous and idiotic reasons.

* Creator/{{CNN}} reporter and news anchor Creator/AndersonCooper has a rather nerve-wracking habit of running off to war and/or disaster areas in order to report from the middle of the action. He won a Peabody for his coverage of Hurricane Katrina (in which he was nearly decapitated by a flying street sign), got punched repeatedly on the streets of Cairo during the Arab Spring, and has reported live and on location from nearly every major war zone of the last thirty years.

* Richard Engel, Creator/{{NBC}} News' Chief Foreign Correspondent and perhaps the greatest example of this in the 21st century.
-->'''[[Series/TheRachelMaddowShow Rachel Maddow]]''': [''opening a minutes-long spiel on just how awesome Engel is''] Richard Engel is NBC's Chief Foreign Correspondent, and forgive me for saying so, but he is better at being a foreign correspondent than anybody else in this business in this country. He is the best of his generation. You can drop Richard Engel anywhere in the world, and he will intrepidly hunt down the most important, most newsworthy thing that is happening there. And when the most important news in the world is happening in the kind of place you are not supposed to drop a foreign correspondent, he is the kind of guy who has been known to get himself there anyway in order to get the story.
