According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 28 reporters have been killed Syria this year — making it one of the most dangerous places on earth for the media to cover. What makes reporting from Syria so dangerous, and why do journalists continue to risk their lives for the story? 

Also this hour: we hear from AP reporter Gene Johnson about the military's decision to seek the death penalty against Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, we continue our conversation with UW's Dr. Jennifer Stuber on mental health coverage in the media, Amanda Wilde previews her all-Christmas edition of The Swing Years, and Marcie Sillman visits the man behind the music at Seattle Center's International Fountain.
