Breaking News (A Stunning and Memorable Account of Reporting from Some of the Most Dangerous Places in the World) was written by author Martin Fletcher. It was published during 2008 by Thomas Dunne Books. Fletcher shares his phenomenal story of spending three decades as a thick-skinned news reporter.
Fletcher has traveled across the globe and reached remote territories where terrible things have happened. Furthermore, he has covered extraordinary news stories regarding wars, revolutions, and natural disasters, including interaction with dangerous people. Overall, his aim is to open the eyes of his audience to things beyond the popular and commercially sensational, to inspire a more knowledgeable and caring global community.
Some online reviews praise this memoir for its depth of experience and insight, while other online reviews indicate too much repetition of Fletcher's background, clouding his reporting events. Fletcher spent years working as the NBC News Bureau Chief in Tel Aviv, and is an award-winning writer. His work has earned him five Emmys.
