Lisa Ling in the Headlines
Lisa responds to the critics
Some critics say Laura and Euna were irresponsible and shouldn't have been near the border. As a journalist, Lisa encourages anyone who follows news to consider things from a reporter's perspective. "They never intended to cross the border. So circumstances led to whatever happened that day. Certainly my sister and Euna, it's the biggest mistake they've ever made. But in the course of doing stories, sometimes things arise," Lisa says. "When stories come out, we devour these stories without really understanding the lengths that sometimes it takes to get those stories—particularly a story like this."
