US journalist, who buried NATO general's career, killed in car accident

 

War correspondent Michael Hastings, whose work in Afghanistan led to the resignation of one of NATO's top generals, was killed in a car accident in Los Angeles, the Associated Press reports.

Thirty-three-year-old Hastings died early in the morning on June 18th. His death was confirmed by his lawyer, family members and employees of BuzzFeed, with whom he had been working closely.

In 2010, Rolling Stone magazine published a report titled "The Runaway General," which won him the prestigious George Polk award in journalism. Because of the article, NATO General Stanley McChrystal had to resign. The journalist wrote of the general's criticism of the military policy of Obama and Biden.

"Michael was a great, fearless journalist with an incredible instinct for the story, and a gift for finding ways to make his readers care about anything he covered from wars to politicians. He wrote stories that would otherwise have gone unwritten, and without him there are great stories that will go untold. Ben Smith, editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed said.

Details of the death of Hastings are being specified.

Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
