The War Correspondent looks at the role of the war reporter today: the attractions and the risks of the job; the challenge of objectivity and impartiality in the war zone; the danger of journalistic independence being compromised by military control, censorship, and public relations; as well as the commercial and technological pressures of an intensely concentrated, competitive news media environment. This new edition substantially updates the original, examining the war on terror framework that dominated the first decade of the twenty-century, and features interviews with prominent war and foreign correspondents such as John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Mary Dvesky, and Alex Thomson.
