Herbert N. Foerstel, "Killing the Messenger: Journalists at Risk in Modern Warfare"
Praeger Publishers | 2006-03-30 | ISBN: 0275987868 | 176 pages | PDF | 1,1 MB
As the conventional warfare of the two world wars has evolved to more urban warfare with no clear front lines, war correspondents have gone from observers to "collateral casualties" to targets. Foerstel, who has written extensively on free press issues, examines the reasons for the changes in warfare, the impact on war reporting, and the corresponding effect on providing perspective on international conflicts. He begins with a historical perspective and famous reporters (Ernie Pyle, Edward R. Murrow) and moves on to examine the forces that have endangered reporters, including Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan in 2002. In their own words, reporters, including Terry Anderson, held captive for six years in Beirut, describe the harrowing dangers facing war correspondents--from suspicion of spying by all sides to the risk of being kidnapped and killed. Reporters weigh the merits of embedding, and the risk of identifying too strongly with the U.S. military, against the danger of independence, even with the help of drivers, translators, and fixers. This is an impressive and thoroughly engrossing look at the perils of reporting on modern warfare.
