Must Watch: Current Vanguard

Vanguard on Current is my new TV addiction and some of the best journalism I've seen recently.
Their award-winning team is young and refreshing and I highly recommend watching Narco War Next Door, trailer seen above, with correspondent Laura Ling and Beach of Death by Christof Putzel and Kaj Larsen. Warning, these reports are heart-breaking but also very important issues that aren't being talked about enough in the joke we call mainstream American media.
Current is Al Gore's media company and is made up of user-generated content. It's really fresh and wonderful - you can make pods, DIY commercials, feedback and get paid for it.

    SEOUL, South Korea – Tales about life on the run from repressive North Korea — women who end up at the mercy of human traffickers, children who grow up in hiding — drew the team of American reporters to the Chinese-North Korean border.

    "Spent the day interviewing young N. Koreans who escaped their country. Too many sad stories," journalist Laura Ling wrote on her Twitter page.

    But their quest to document the plight of North Korean refugees may have put them in danger. Ling and fellow reporter Euna Lee were missing Friday, three days after they reportedly were seized by North Korean soldiers along the border.
