Reflection on International Journalism

Journalism students who aspire to become international correspondents are concerned about the worsening media credibility in a troubled world. Yet on the other hand, they frequently ask how news coverage of this troubled world can contribute to making it safer and bearable for the next generation.

After the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq in 2002, several media critics increasingly bedeviled foreign correspondents and the international news media in general for the way they covered those wars. The criticism of foreign correspondents stemmed from the debate about embedded journalists and their role in framing the wars in the interest of the United States.

While you were away…

We start the 2008 academic year with much to celebrate: two new faculty members (Assist. Profs. Aimee Edmondson and Yusuf Kalyango), an incoming class of 250 bright freshmen as well as a stellar class of new graduate students, new technology in classrooms (Anderson Auditorium, Scripps 108 and Sing Tao 101), and a Web site that helps keep everyone informed about accomplishments and programs in the JSchool.

At the same time, we face the very real challenge of keeping up with the pace of change in our industry. This is a challenge facing the faculty as well as the students in the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism.
