Product Description:

History was indeed once written by the victors, with accounts of battles literally recorded only by the triumphant commanders, but the rise of independent journalism and television news has changed the state of wartime reporting significantly. FRONTLINE REPORTING explores the origins of the vital but dangerous occupation, and presents interviews with contemporary pioneers such as Walter Cronkite.

Description by New Video Group:

In March 2003, embedded civilian correspondents rolled along with the U.S. military convoy as it invaded Iraq. Equipped with satellite and video phones, digital cameras, and lightweight satellite uplinks, frontline reporters dispatched the news of war as it happened. Reports of war are as old as war itself; once the exclusive province of soldier-scribes like Julius Caesar, the accounts were usually written after the fact. Join us as we review the history and preview the future of frontline reporting.
