I couldn't agree more. I teach at a journalism school, and one of the things we struggle to think through
is how the practice of journalism is changing. How have you seen the job of a war correspondent change over the years?
If 24hr cable news cycle and satellite technology brought new forms of coverage, how has social media changed your job. And how we understant events?
I personally love the fact that we get a window into your reporting through twitter. It give us access to reporting as a process, rather than an end product
You mean the gossiping part of canadian reporting!
Is it important to have Canadian voices covering the world? Is this different than watching the BBC, or Al Jazeera? Or getting content directly from those living it via social media?
A question from Lucas that is related to this, but from the inverse perspective: "How do citizens struggling on the ground in nations like Iraq view Western media?"
And another question, this one from Shannon, "Have you found your status as a journalist has kept you safer or put you more at risk when reporting in conflict areas?" I would add, do you see this norm changing?
