Four N.Y. Times journalists missing in Libya

Four journalists for The New York Times are missing in Libya, the newspaper said Wednesday on its website.

The Times said the missing journalists are Anthony Shadid, the paper's Beirut bureau chief and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner; Stephen Farrell, a reporter and videographer who was kidnapped by the Taliban in 2009 and rescued by British commandos; and two photographers, Tyler Hicks and Lynsey Addario.

"We have talked with officials of the Libyan government in Tripoli, and they tell us they are attempting to ascertain the whereabouts of our journalists," executive editor Bill Keller said. "We are grateful to the Libyan government for their assurance that if our journalists were captured they would be released promptly and unharmed."

    Too bad Regean is gone. He bombed Gadalfi long ago. Too bad we missed. He wouldn't be missing with American reporters if Regean were here. Obama can't do much, his hands are tied.

    @Franny60; That other Cesar guy aggravates me. He turns everything into a political issue and has my name. Can you understand? This was supposed to be about 4 NY journalists being missing in Libya. The idiot starts talking about the CIA, Hilary, etc. He is annoying me because he is using my name.

    The right wing nuts in Washington make a good bed partner with the right wing media. Such spewing of epic proportions. You sound to me like a true tea partier "Hating Cesar Right Now" There is no place here for such Tea Party lingo.
