The Responsibility of the Reporter

"There is a feeling in our newsroom that you need to be as realistic as possible and carry the images of war and the effect that war has on people"(quote taken from In the Line of Fire)

Some reporters treat the job with responsibility. They're on the frontlines standing with (or at least really close to) the soldiers and see what's going on.

Some of these media members feel that these dying young men should get the coverage they deserve. People need to know that these boys and girls are dying for us and our rights.

The audience should feel as if they're at the war and not just because they have Digital Dolby Surround Sound and HD quality picture. How is the audience supposed to know or care about a war a half a world away if they don't see anything more then a watered down edited for television version of the events taking place.
