The first-person pieces ( New York Times , Boston Globe , CBC , MTV , Slate , et al.) by reporters who've completed "media boot camps" in preparation for covering the Iraq attack should prime us for the sight of gut-wagons wheeling back from the front piled high with journos. In piece after piece, combat-inept reporters undergo multiple simulated deaths as their trainers attack them with mock mustard gas, grenades, and bullets. "You just ran into a mine field!" a soldier/instructor hollers at a network correspondent in the San Francisco Chronicle 's account.
WHAT IS FREELANCE JOURNALISM? by Brian Scott Freelance journalism is one of the more hectic forms of freelance writing. If you want to become a successful freelance journalist, you'll need to be comfortable with spending much time hunting down stories, traveling from place to place, and writing under short deadlines. If you enjoy all of that, and if you're interested in some of the best opportunities for personal creativity, then freelance journalism may be for you. When we talk about freelance journalism, we need to distinguish between two types: newspaper journalism and magazine journalism.
MR. GJELTEN: Well thanks for coming out, everyone, on kind of a crummy day. Im Tom Gjelten from NPR, and I have with me David Rieff and Lindsey Hilsum and Roger Cohen, and Roger and Lindsey both came from London. So you know, those of you who are feeling proud of yourselves for having come out today, they came a much further distance. So you know, its hard to believe, but 20 years have passed since the outbreak of war in the former Yugoslavia. In May of 1991, in Croatia, a gun battle broke out between Serb and Croat militiamen in the village of Borovo Selo, leaving more than a dozen dead.
War Journalism Resources Resolving Ethical Conflicts in Wartime Journalists face unprecedented ethical pressures during times of war. Popular patriotic passions, the demands and strategic interests of the government, cultural and national sensitivities and traditional journalistic responsibilities are often on a collision course. The Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists advises journalists to “Seek Truth and Report It” and to “Minimize Harm” — obligations that are frequently in conflict, as are the other two major obligations in the code: “Act Independently” and “Be Accountable.” Here are some questions — many of them overlapping — that journalists might consider in resolving ethical conflicts on issues ranging from disclosure of troop positions to publication of disturbing photos to evaluation of government demands to suppress “enemy propaganda.”
What does media freedom mean in a place like Sri Lanka that is determined to stamp out a long-standing insurrection? - by A.W. Berryby A.W. Berry Created on : October 02, 2008 Last Updated : April 29, 2011 Sri Lanka's civil war between the Sinhalese Government and separatist 'Tamil Tigers' has led to strong media restrictions by the Sri Lankan Government. These restrictions have been in place for several years and have required sanctioning of news reporting by Government officials in effort to preserve the rule of law and Government authority.

At the end of my profile of filmmaker Danfung Dennis in our 2010 “25 New Faces” feature, I touched on what was then his next project. After completing Hell and Back Again — winner of the World Cinema Jury Prize and World Cinema Cinematography Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival — Dennis embarked on Condition One, which he told me “will use a network of journalists, filmmakers and servicemen to send a stream of high-quality video to millions of mobile devices.” Danfung’s new venture now has a website , a Facebook page and a proof-of-concept video that’s also 90 seconds of frontline reporting.
K evin Sites had no intention of igniting an international firestorm when he videotaped a U. S. Marine shooting a wounded Iraqi in a Fallujah mosque last month. But that is precisely what his release of these incendiary images has done.
Introduction By Dave Johns According to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), 2004 was the deadliest year for journalists in the last decade. They died disproportionately in one place: Iraq. Deteriorating security conditions caused by the growing insurgency make Iraq the world's most dangerous place for journalists today. Of the 56 journalists killed worldwide last year, more than 40 percent lost their lives in Iraq. On paper, all journalists are protected from harm when reporting from a war zone.

Nato 's Libya operations have cost millions and involved thousands of airmen and sailors. But who's contributed to Operation Unified Protector ? That's the official name for the attacks on the Gadaffi regime's bases and tanks by Nato aircraft and ships, plus the enforcement of the no-fly zone and the arms embargo.

Tim Hetherington: Tragic death of Tim Hetherington speaks to danger, importance of war correspondents - South Florida Sun-Sentinel.comMay 29, 2011 | Antonio Fins , SUN SENTINEL EDITORIAL PAGE EDITOR Three years ago, I wrote about a "cousin" of mine, Wilfredo Zamora, killed in combat in Vietnam on July 4, 1968. I wrote about how getting the news that day is my earliest — and most profound — memory of a Fourth of July. And I wrote about how there hasn't been a Fourth of July or a Memorial Day that I haven't thought of his sacrifice, or a trip to Washington, D.C., where I haven't looked up his name on The Wall. But on this Memorial Day, I'm not just going to think of him, or the many others who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of America, or our interests. I am also going to think of another individual, not a soldier but a war correspondent.
War Journalism Resources Risky Assignments In A Dangerous Job , Robert Leger writes about how journalists, too, have a role in the fight for freedom, and sometimes the risks of reporting are great. Sadly, the death of a journalist isn’t unusual. Last year, at least three dozen reporters were killed for doing their jobs.
Mexico's human-rights rhetoric is second to none. It has been like this for a decade. The government has signed or ratified more than 20 human-rights treaties and considered more than 1,000 recommendations from various human-rights organizations. These fine words and political gestures contradict the failure of successive administrations to tackle the reality of Mexican corruption and impunity - issues intensified by President Felipe Calderon's "war on drugs." One horrendous byproduct of the war on drugs has been what amounts to systemic state-sanctioned violence against journalists who expose government corruption and its ties to drug traffickers. Given the number killed per year, Mexico is now the world's most dangerous country in which to be a journalist.
With one sentence, the New York Times raised dozens of Middle East pundits' hopes that their words were reaching the most powerful man in the world. "At night in the family residence...Mr. Obama often surfs the blogs of experts on Arab affairs or regional news sites to get a local flavor for events," read Mark Landler's account of how the Obama administration will attempt to use the killing of Osama bin Laden to recast the U.S. relationship with the Arab world. Well, Mr.
