A Fitting Tribute

UW-Madison’s Center on Journalism Ethics has renamed its Wisconsin Commitment to Journalism Ethics Award the Anthony Shadid Award for Journalism Ethics. (h/t, Dane 101).  Shadid, you may recall, was the UW-alumnus (and former Daily Cardinal editor) who died a couple months ago while covering the uprising in Syria (he suffered a fatal asthma attack while trying to slip across the border into Turkey). Sadly, he was not the last journalist to lose his (or her) life covering events in Syria.
