TBILISI, Georgia, 22 May 2014 Journalists at Studio Monitor watch one of my films during a presentation today on backpack and citizen journalism. Studio Monitor is the leading investigative journalism outlet in this country and, from what they showed me today, these journalists are doing a terrific job. What an extraordinary group of young, idealistic and courageous men and women. They remind me of my early days in Central America when so many local journalists stepped into the fray in hopes of making a better life for their countries and for their countrymen and women.
