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.

About the Author:

Greg McLaughlin is senior lecturer in media and journalism at the University of Ulster. He is author, with Stephen Baker, of The Propaganda of Peace: The Role of Media and Culture in the Northern Ireland Peace Process and The British Media and Bloody Sunday.

Review:

“Offers insightful suggestions on how the always-tense relationship between fighting forces and reporting media can be made more productive and efficient.” (Choice)

"At a time of heightened geopolitical tension, McLaughlin's study of the war correspondent is an important contribution to understanding the role of the journalist in war time. This revised edition is essential reading for students and researchers of conflict news." (Brian McNair, Queensland University of Technology)

Through interviews with prominent war and foreign correspondents such as John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Mary Dejevsky and Alex Thomson The War Correspondent delves into the most dangerous form of journalism. From Crimea to Vietnam, the Falklands to the Gulf and Afghanistan, Iraq and the War on Terror, the books examines the attractions and risks of war reporting; the challenge of objectivity and impartiality in the war zone; the danger that journalistic independence is compromised by military control, censorship and public relations; as well as the commercial and technological pressures of an intensely concentrated, competitive news media environment. As history and ideology return to the reporting of international conflict, Greg McLaughlin asks what will that mean for a new generation of war correspondents, attuned not to history or ideology but to the politics of the next conflict.
