DMZ 13

Why do reporters do what they do?

I once worked as a reporter. The job lasted all of one month. I couldn't take it. The daily deadlines, the field work. It's not for me.

Strangely, one of my favorite movies is The Paper. Michael Keaton film about a New York newspaper - Iv'e watched it again and again.

Issue 13 of DMZ is about undercover reporting and again, I'm wondering why reporters do what they do. Undercover reporting is a 24/7, invent-it-as-you-go, landmine-ridden line of work. In this initial issue of a five part storyline we get to see Matty Roth find the lead that gets him the undercover job; we get to feel his excitement at getting that story and we get to go be with him as he discovers the existence of a terrorist cell inside a mega-Corporation.
