The teenage version of this is the SchoolNewspaperNewsHound. An intrepid reporter has a good chance of being a HotScoop as well. The {{Jerkass}} or EvilCounterpart is the {{Paparazzi}}, or the PropagandaMachine if it's a large organisation. If an intrepid reporter has no name, and/or is clearly snooping around [[AbandonedArea somewhere]] [[NoOSHACompliance they]] [[RoomFullOfCrazy really]] [[SupervillainLair shouldn't]] [[SecretGovernmentWarehouse be]], they are most likely a RedShirtReporter as well.

* Alya in ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'', Marinette's best friend and runner of the Ladyblog. She didn't stop streaming even after an akumatized villain took her as a sacrifice to the Egyptian Gods.

* 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 the VietnamWar, which was dramatized 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.

* Are you kidding me! There are too many examples to count!! Without these guys, democracy would be a farce -- and too many of them die trying to find the truth!
** Examples
*** James Foley -- He was beheaded by ISIS while covering the Syria Civil War in 2014.
*** Marcos Hernandez Bautista - He went after local Mexican warlords in Oaxaca, and died trying to expose them.
*** Majid Dirani -- A Syrian tank killed him while he was filming the Syrian War in February 19, '''''2016'''''
** Gah, I can never honor all the journalists who died in the line of duty. '''8''' alone died in just two months in 2016.
** Here's a website chronicling the deaths of these guardians of justice.
*** https://cpj.org/killed/2016/
*** I'm trying not to cry as I type this. These guys are heros.
