High-risk journalism: How can journalists prepare?
In many countries around the world, journalists put themselves at high risk each day covering stories including drug-trafficking, guerrilla groups, violence and war.
Some claim that journalists interested in covering high risk stories should not wait for government action, but instead should receive special, military-like training, such as how to identify the sound of a firing weapon when reporting.
What do you think? Should journalists reporting from violent zones be required to engage themselves in military-driven training? If so, do you think this would turn prospective journalists away from entering the profession? Would such training interfere with journalistic values?
