“Everyone across the entire AP is in awe of the coverage from our colleagues in Hong Kong. The video journalists and photographers and reporters in the field — and all the editors and producers and other people all across Asia supporting them — are doing heroic work,” said Executive Editor Sally Buzbee.
“There is nothing more difficult in all of journalism than keeping such a high level of excellent, top-notch work sustained across months and months of a challenging conflict like Hong Kong — while dodging tear gas, water cannons and worse — and working through little sleep and little food and chilly weather and constant danger,” Buzbee said.
