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 that journalistic independence is 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, ending with an extended section on the return of history and ideology to the reporting of international conflict. It examines the 'war on terror' framework that dominated the first decade of the 21st Century and, as Russia imposes itself once again on the international stage, asks if it might well give way to a new, Cold War framework. If so, what will that mean for the new generation of war correspondents, attuned not to history or ideology but the politics of the next conflict?The book features interviews with prominent war and foreign correspondents such as John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Mary Dvesky and Alex Thomson., The War Correspondent looks at the role of the war reporter today: the perks and the risks of the job; the danger that independent journalism is compromised through reporters being 'embedded' within the military; the media politics of international intervention in humanitarian crises; the seductive power of military 'public relations'; and of course the commercial and technological pressures of an intensely concentrated, competitive news media environment.The book features interviews with prominent war and foreign correspondents such as John Pilger, Robert Fisk and Jason Burke. Greg McLaughlin argues that the future for war reporting and foreign correspondence will be determined not so much by professional imperatives but by military pressures and market forces outside the control of the journalist.This new edition substantially updates the original, showing how journalists have reported and represented the major conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the civil conflicts that have emerged in North Africa and the Middle East.
