Lara Logan's bold, award-winning reporting from war zones has earned her a prominent spot among the world's best foreign correspondents. Named a full-time 60 Minutes correspondent in May 2012, the 2015-16 season will be her 11th contributing to the newsmagazine. Logan's September 2010 60 Minutes report, "A Relentless Enemy", from the battlefield in Afghanistan, earned her electronic journalism's highest award, a duPont-Columbia University Silver Baton. Another from that war zone, a two-segment series for the CBS Evening News about U.S. Marines on patrol, won an Emmy and an Edward R. Murrow Award. She has also received five American Women in Radio and Television Gracie Awards.
Hundreds of journalists are killed, harassed, or imprisoned every year. For 30 years, the Committee to Protect Journalists has been there to defend them worldwide. Why protect journalists? Journalism plays a vital role in the balance of power between a government and its people. When a country's journalists are silenced, its people are silenced. By protecting journalists, CPJ protects freedom of expression and democracy.
