Im John Cantlie
In November 2012, British freelance journalist John Cantlie was taken hostage by ISIS in Syria. Two years later, he surfaced in a propaganda video, extolling the virtues of ISIS and disparaging the West. He's continued to pop up in ISIS propaganda since then, acting as a sort of warped foreign correspondent, forced to report on the extremist group's behalf. Brooke and Bob reflect on Cantlie's role in the ISIS media machine, and how his plight is a window into the challenges now confronting intrepid chroniclers of war.
