I'm reasonably certain that Current doesn't employ any crews of its own, 
and that the two individuals being held by the North Koreans are 
freelancers who happen to have sold some material to Current at some point.

It's incredibly rare at this point to find any international news crews 
who aren't freelancers; this surely doesn't make it any easier for any 
of them (the freelancers, that is) when they get into political trouble.
