War Zones: Rising Risks, Declining Rewards

This lively and sometimes contentious panel discussion of the changing environment for correspondents covering war zones took place September 9, during events marking the 60th anniversary of the Edward R. Murrow Fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Participants included Christiane Amanpour, Kim Barker, Mohamad Bazzi, Kathy Gannon and Christopher Dickey.

For those with the interest and the time, the other panels were equally interesting. Margaret Warner's rundown is available on her PBS blog.

And this is the home page for the event, with biographies of participants and a video of the conversation among heads of the news divisions at NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN. (Fox, for some reason, chose not to participate): http://www.cfr.org/about/fellowships/murrow_fellowship.html
