June 3, 2015 — On this installment of the Shorenstein Center’s Media and Politics Podcast, Jeffrey Goldberg from The Atlantic and Farnaz Fassihi, a senior writer at The Wall Street Journal, discuss the changing nature of reporting on conflict and terrorism in the Middle East. Goldberg, who spoke in November 2014, and Fassihi, who spoke in March 2015, explore the heightened security risks to correspondents in the Middle East, why the situation has changed, how coverage of the region suffers when journalists aren’t able to report from the ground, and how moments of hope can still be found in an otherwise traumatic environment.
