The Hot Zone

Yahoo, clearly keen on being taken seriously as a news provider, has hired journalist Kevin Sites to report on the world’s war zones. Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone will provide audio, video and written commentary on Site’s year-long journey to “every armed conflict in the world.”

Sites is a gutsy journalist and will no doubt provide intriguing insights during his travels. His “declaration of principles” makes for interesting reading. This sounds encouraging:

“We will be aggressive in pursuing the stories that are not getting mainstream coverage and we will put a human face on them. We will not chase headlines nor adhere to pack journalism but vigorously pursue the stories in front of and behind the conflict, the small stories that when strung together illustrate a more complete picture.”

September 26 is launch day.
