While international news is more important then ever,
the press is increasingly the target of attack. Please
join us for a discussion on how the media reports conflicts,
the protection of reporters in dangerous situations, press
freedom, and the perception of Western media abroad along
with foreign coverage at home.
The panel, in commemoration of Daniel Pearl on the third-year
anniversary of his death, is a chance to reflect on the
values for which Danny lived, and the risks that journalists
around the world continue to face.
Organized by the Daniel Pearl Foundation and co-sponsored
by the Overseas Press Club of America
