Anthony Shadid Obit

Oklahoma has lost a son and journalism has lost one of its best. We learned on Thursday that New York Times foreign correspondent Anthony Shadid died while on assignment in Syria. The apparent cause of death was an asthma attack, at the age of 43. A native of Oklahoma City, Shadid twice won the Pulitzer Prize. He's nominated for another one this year. Shadid worked in dangerous, complicated regions - telling stories of human struggle on the ground in the Middle East, bringing detail and understanding to ambiguity. In 2005, we did a program with Anthony Shadid, following the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the release of his second book. We talked about his coverage of war and the Iraqi people. Anthony Shadid leaves behind a wife, two children and a large family in Oklahoma. Shadid's former colleague at the Boston Globe, Mike Barnicle, said this about him: "Anthony Shadid was a reporter. He didn't tweet. He didn't blog. He didn't sit at home and opinionate about things that he saw. He was in the field. He talked to real people. He reported on real situations; in places consumed by violence....Anthony Shadid was a giant."
