    Was she related to Douglas Colvin?

    I do not watch Fox News, but the night before she died I was flipping up to the History Channel and saw a screen with a striking woman with an eye patch in the upper left corner.

    Intrigued, I stopped to watch and listen.   The reporter was direct and condemning of the government of Syria.  Very direct.

    The next morning, NPR has the news of her death.  

    One would assume the Assad’s government monitors Fox and also has the expertise to locate SatPhone transmissions.

    • As far as I can tell,  Colvin did not work for the Fox News TV channel. She was officially working for the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times of London. She did apparently appear sometimes on BBC and some other nets, but she was mostly a print reporter.

    I suppose it would be too early to point out that this picture looks a bit like Kurt Russell’s Snake Plissken character from Escape from New York? Hypothetically speaking.
