Topic: A Deadly Profession – How to Confront the Dangers of Modern Journalism
Renowned war correspondent Marie COLVIN is one of nearly 20 journalists killed worldwide this year in what has become an increasingly dangerous profession. The risks lie not only in wars, but also in civil unrest, natural disasters and investigative journalism.
An FCC panel of two senior editors and a leading security expert will open the discussion on how the risks have evolved, and how journalists can best equip themselves to face them.
