Vice Magazine (2005): Journalism Beyond Journalists

Robert Young Pelton used to run a major marketing firm and occasionally take a couple weeks off to go on little travel expeditions. Then one day he realized he was bored out of his mind and began sneaking his way into war-zones and other no-man’s-lands to see what they were all about. Today that’s more or less all he does, writing about what it’s actually like in utter hellholes like Chechnya and Colombia while the rest of the world is reading regurgitated press releases. We asked him what he felt was up with media these days, and he talked our ear off, and man are we glad he did.

Vice: You don’t like to be called a journalist. What’s that about?
