Japanese broadcasters on air during the earthquake, anchoring live, with helmets on.
Japan, I love you.
Reblogging for reasons other than humor value.
Earlier this morning (EST), we saw journalists staying at their desks, typing away and taking phone calls while the world was essentially shaking around them.
These anchors were inside studios, sitting beneath heavy, white-hot lighting grids, seemingly (but not) oblivious to the dangers they faced trying to get the word out about the disaster wracking their country and killing their fellow citizens.
Elsewhere in the country were photographers, reporters, producers, camera operators, helicopter pilots — all gathering the news.
This is supreme dedication to their profession; we are thankful and humbled by their steadfastness in the face of tragedy.
