    Default War correspondent once worked as a writer for Teamsters Local 237, killed in Syria

    Took quote from IBT home page (Home page link lead to second link, below.) International Brotherhood of Teamsters | International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT)
    Marie Colvin, a war correspondent for the British newspaper The Sunday Times who once worked as a writer for Teamsters Local 237, was killed in Syria last week. Colvin was hired in 1978 to write for Local 237’s News and Views newspaper. She worked there until 1980. Colvin and a photographer were killed when a rocket stuck the house they were living in while on assignment in Syria.
    Marie Colvin mourned by family, colleagues
    Recounting the story of her daughter's refusal to leave Syria, she added: "She died doing what was really important to her."

    Jay Carney and Jake Tapper clash over
    "....White House press secretary Jay Carney began his daily briefing by praising the work of Marie Colvin, the Sunday Times reporter who also was killed there on Wednesday.

    Carney called their deaths "tragic," and "a reminder of the incredible risks that journalists take ... in order to bring the truth about what is happening in a country like Syria to those of us at home."

    But, Obama's press secretary seemed unprepared for a hard line of questioning from ABC News senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper, who took issue with the administration's applause of aggressive reporting abroad while trying to silence it at home in the United States.
