The nice and the ugly side of war

Here's why we need Reporters Without Borders.

When you hear the word “war” you don’t necessarily think daisies and diamonds, you think death and destruction.

But, if we lived in a world without journalists on the ground, reporting and photographing the devastation from the trenches, there’s a good possibility that we’d only see the “nice” side of war: the air shows, patriotic parades, colourful uniforms and synchronised marches. So, to put this fact in focus, Reporters Without Borders and agency BETC created a stunning (in all senses of the word) spot that starts out chirpy, but quickly turns to show the side of war we might not see if there were no reporters who risk their lives to tell us the truth.
