Ling's resume impressive

lauralingeunalee.jpgReporter Laura Ling is "unassuming, inquisitive and fearless...fearless, but not reckless," says a San Francisco Chronicle story about Ling and Euna Lee, the Los Angeles journalists held in North Korea. Ling is known for traveling light on her foreign stories, taking just a one-person crew or sometimes going alone. "A network TV anchor reporting from a dangerous zone might travel in at least a five-person crew, plus a security detail."
