Photojournalists, reporters, and academic scholars talked about the ethics of “embedded” journalists working with military units. They also told descriptive stories of working as journalists in Afghanistan, Iraq, Colombia, Angola, and other areas. They responded to some questions from members of the audience.
“Embedded” journalism, begun during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, is the practice of approved reporters traveling with soldiers during armed conflicts. Reporters signed contracts promising not to divulge anything that would compromise ongoing or future military missions, or classified information.
“Ethics of Embedded Journalism” at the Museum of Jewish Heritage was co-sponsored by the International Center of Photography and Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE). It was presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Filming the Camps: From Hollywood to Nuremberg,” which closed that day. close
