In the English world, there have been numerous journalists who have created a niche for themselves due to their prompt and ethical reporting, daring attitude and never-say-die spirit. Amongst them, some that deserve a mention include Robert Fisk, a fearless reporter who covered the Persian Gulf War, Iraq War and the war in Afghanistan, Kate Adie who is still best known for her stint with BBC News as Chief News Correspondent, Louis Sebastian Theroux, an explorer of cultural subjects who gained the top spot with the flagship shows ‘Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends’ and ‘When Louis Met…’.
