Curry has also used her Twitter to update viewers on reporting on Syria, such as, "Good morning twitterverse. Pulled an all-nighter to bring you stunning images of people escaping shelling in Syria."
The situation in Syria is complex with allegations that the Syrian president has been ordering his military to control what could be a revolution, similar to what happened in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. The events in Syria, which United Nations officials have referred to as a growing civil war, has seen city bombed, civilians killed, and an influx of refugees to neighboring countries such as Jordan. The Syrian president insist he is protecting his city from terrorists and gangs.
Curry supported such claims in her report on Monday stating more than 240,000 have fled from Syria's borders and is reaching "a stunning new intensity."
Fox News' Greta Van Susteren has credited Curry's recent reporting efforts in Syria in a blog posted on Sunday titled "Ann Curry ... a real journalist"
"I just read that Ann Curry is headed overseas (or is there now) reporting on the crisis in Syria. Good for her! These days many call themselves journalists yet they never leave the studio or have a source other than the internet or others' reports," posted the Fox News host of "On the Record."
Curry's report from Syria will also be featured on NBC's "Nightly News with Brian Williams," at 6:30 p.m. EDT.
