"If President Bush is serious about genocide, an immediate priority is to stop the cancer of Darfur from spreading further, which means working with France to shore up Chad and the Central African Republic." -- Nicholas D. Kristof
Nicholas Donabet Kristof (born April 27, 1959 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American journalist, author, op-ed columnist, and a winner of two Pulitzer Prizes. He has written an op-ed column for The New York Times since November 2001 and is widely known for bringing to light human rights abuses in Asia and Africa, such as human trafficking and the Darfur conflict. He has lived on four continents, reported on six, and traveled to 150 countries and all 50 states. According to his blog, during his travels he has had "unpleasant experiences with malaria, wars, an Indonesian mob carrying heads on pikes, and an African airplane crash". Jeffrey Toobin of CNN and The New Yorker, a Harvard classmate, has said: "I’m not surprised to see him emerge as the moral conscience of our generation of journalists. I am surprised to see him as the Indiana Jones of our generation of journalists.”

Ann Curry of NBC wrote in her blog that she was once asked to name a modern journalist who showed courage and leadership comparable to the great Edward R. Murrow, but couldn't immediately think of one. Curry, who traveled with Kristof to Darfur, wrote that she later concluded that the best analogy was to Kristof: "The crazy thing is that Kristof in real life is an exceedingly cautious man,... unassuming, disarmingly sweet, mild-mannered guy... interviewing people in a village preparing for a Janjaweed attack... I don't know what Kristof would think about being compared to a TV journalist. Newspaper reporters are notoriously snooty about television news. But no matter what Kristof thinks, he is, in his commitment to the fundamental ideals of news reporting, comparable to the great Murrow."

Bill Clinton said in September 2009: "There is no one in journalism, anywhere in the United States at least, who has done anything like the work he has done to figure out how poor people are actually living around the world, and what their potential is....So every American citizen who cares about this should be profoundly grateful that someone in our press establishment cares enough about this to haul himself all around the world to figure out what's going on....I am personally in his debt, as are we all."
