  1. I do admire the courage of the journalists.
    But also I think they are fools. Why not wait a few days?
    If the journalists get in trouble, they can take the time of the military or take the place of other soldiers in hospitals.
    I think the military has other priorities right now than to save some journalists ass.
    I am not sure if it is just courage or just prestige, wanting to be the first to report from Kherson.
