Marie Colvin: Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch

Rosemarie Colvin Dept: OYSTER BAY, N.Y. - Journalist Marie Colvin was remembered Monday as a fearless seeker of truth by mourners from media mogul Rupert Murdoch to the immigrants who counted on her dispatches from their strife-ridden homelands to make a difference in global policy, according to Winnipeg Free Press. And when her casket emerged from at St. Dominic's Roman Catholic Church after her funeral Mass, a group of Sri Lankan immigrants held a placard dubbing her the "uncrowned queen of intrepid journalists."
