Journalism is one of the most risky profession in the world today. Recently, a reporter, reporting live a demonstration, became a victim of harassment by men in masks. Anna Baranova, the reporter working for a Russian TV channel, regardless of being continuously attacked by the masked men did not react and carried on recording – Fearless and Bold!
Not every journalist or reporter has the courage to face such attacks and harassment situations either in front or behind the camera. However, this lady here just proved to be one of the most courageous and bold female reporters. She kept her calm and continued the live streaming without any concern of what the camera is capturing as long as she is standing there doing her duty in the best possible way.
I believe that these masked men are the hypocrites that fear to come in front and attack without hiding their faces. It is they who should be mocked and brought in front of all so that they become a reference for what they tend to do is never going to be accepted in the society – not now, not tomorrow, not ever!
Hence, this reporter right here has become a role model for me atleast, with the bravery she showed instead of fleeing from the area and fearing the situation.
“Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.”
