Vangaurd's Documentary Series Examines Life and Death Along Border

Reporting along the U.S. and Mexico border has become an increasingly dangerous task for journalists who live on both sides of the fence. According to Reporters Without Borders, an international NGO that advocates for press freedom, more journalists have been killed in Mexico this year (8) than in any other country in the world. Current TV's Vanguard, a documentary series that won a Peabody Award earlier this year for its reporting on OxyContin in Florida, is now airing a three-part investigation into the roots of the violence in Mexico, entitled "Border Wars." Adam Yamaguchi, the executive producer of "Border Wars" and a correspondent for the series, spoke with the NewsHour by phone from Los Angeles and said that the project took nearly seven months to complete.
