I attended this the other day and it was really good. The next 12 to 24 months is going to see some dramatic changes in the direction of the situation in Afghanistan. This is no Iraq.


Podcast: Reporting in Afghanistan panel discussion

Available In:

April 30, 2009 – To mark World Press Freedom Day (Saturday, May 2), CBC Toronto and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression hosted a “Reporting in Afghanistan†panel discussion in Glenn Gould Studio, April 29, to look at the challenges facing foreign and local reporters, the pros and cons of embedded reporting, and the role of reporting in shaping Canadian policy and public opinion.

In front of a full house of employees, journalism students and members of the community, the panel, moderated by The Current’s Anna Maria Tremonti, and consisting of CBC News journalist Susan Ormiston, photojournalist Louie Palu, and The Globe and Mail’s Graeme Smith, told harrowing tales of their experiences in Afghanistan and talked about the importance of reporting—and continuing to report—from the region.
