I learned about Nellie Bly recently, and think it will be good for her story to be in the Guide alongside fellow pioneering journalist Ida M Tarbell.

Nice job! smiley - applause And thanks for doing this. The Guide will be more complete!

Could you footnote Louis Theroux and the other journalist, please? I've never heard of them, so I'm betting other non-British readers will want to know them (and why they're Nellie Bly-like). I'm assuming they're British.

You might mention Anderson Cooper to get an American in - he did some risky stuff in his younger days, even if he is an anchor now. smiley - smiley
Or Anne Garrels, author of 'Naked in Baghdad'. While covering the 2003 war, she used to take all her clothes off before broadcasting (on the radio!) from her hotel room. That way, if Iraqi officials came storming in to stop her broadcasting, they would be very, very embarrassed.
