David S. Rohde

Rohde at the 2018 Pulitzer Prizes David Stephenson Rohde (born August 7, 1967) is an American author and investigative journalist, he is the former online news director for ''The New Yorker'' and now serves as Senior Executive Editor, National Security, for NBC News. While a reporter for ''The Christian Science Monitor'', he won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 1996 for his coverage of the Srebrenica massacre. From 2002 until 2005, he was co-chief of ''The New York Times'' South Asia bureau, based in New Delhi, India. He later contributed to the newspaper's team coverage of Afghanistan and Pakistan that received the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting and was a finalist in his own right in the category in 2010. He is also a global affairs analyst for CNN.

While in Afghanistan, Rohde was kidnapped by members of the Taliban in November 2008, but managed to escape in June 2009 after seven months in captivity. While he was in captivity, ''The New York Times'' collaborated with a number of media outlets, including al-Jazeera and Wikipedia, to remove news of the kidnapping from the public eye. This was done to decrease his value as a hostage and bargaining chip, and so increase his chances of eventual survival. Provided by Wikipedia
