In this virtual media panel: ‘Navigating Tensions in War Coverage’, speakers will highlight key frameworks and checklists to guide reporters, editors and producers in covering the multi-layered contexts of the conflict in the Middle East region and at home, including demonstrations across the nation’s campuses. It will stream Live on YouTube and Facebook on May 30, Thursday at 11:30 am PDT.

Panelists including former veteran television war reporters, news and law enforcement leaders will also discuss another ongoing war at home: tensions in America’s newsrooms, in line with coverage in conflict zones.

This digital dialogue is anchored on DEI and Belonging as a crucial framework that steers newsrooms towards an inclusive culture of storytelling driven by accuracy, balance and respect for diverse perspectives. This includes the lens of journalists of color that provide nuance.

The NATAS [National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences] SF/NorCAL chapter’s DEI Committee presents this follow-up virtual forum focused on navigating tensions in war coverage, from an insightful digital dialogue on the dangers and psychological impacts of war reporting, held last November 2023.

This upcoming media webcast is a resource support to our members, and is a news source as well to the broader journalism community and the public.
