Summary
War journalism has become an increasingly lethal endeavor. Not only are correspondents viewed as targets, they are often subject to kidnapping, torture, and even beheading. This Peabody Award-winning documentary weaves together portraits of journalists and photographers who have survived the physical rigors of their assignments but succumbed emotionally to the trauma of what they experienced. Inspired by the work of Dr. Anthony Feinstein, a neuropsychiatrist on retainer to many of the world's major media outlets, and with powerful testimony from several combat journalists, the program makes known the psychological cost of covering war
