Journalism is Disappearing from War Zones
December 7, 2016
This week, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) released its new survey, the “2016 People on War report.” Drawing on the views of 17,000 people in 16 countries, the report provides important insight into how war is perceived around the world. We spoke to ICRC Director General Yves Daccord, a former journalist, about the new study and about how war is being reported on globally. Critically, we learned that journalism is disappearing from war zones and we discussed the impact fake news and propaganda has on war and perceptions of issues associated with war.
