* Creator/{{ITV} football commentator John Helm turned up to a routine TV engagement on the 11th May 1985, to report on a Third Division match between Bradford City and Lincoln City, a football game a long way away from the glamour of Manchester United or Chelsea. He was, in fact, practically the only journalist in the ground, so low was the sporting or news significance of the fixture. He and his camera team then recorded the horror of the stadium fire that erupted unexpectedly and was responsible for the deaths of fifty-six people and were the only news presence there for a long time.

* 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 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.

* Spider Jerusalem from ''ComicBook/{{Transmetropolitan}}''. A particularly MarySue-ish example in that he brings down an entire ''government'' with his stories, and absolutely ''no one'' can stop him. Makes sense, really, as he's what Creator/HunterSThompson would be with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian_Assange Julian Assange's]] resources.
** [[Film/AllThePresidentsMen An entire government ''was'' brought down by two intrepid reporters]] within recent history: it's not that far fetched.
** ''Any'' reporter in the City is one of these if they're making any attempt to tell the truth. The one seen most often (other than Spider) is Robert [=McX=], who's effectively Spider's TV counterpart.
