Reuters Webcast at 6PM EDT on Media Coverage of Iraq
Reuters is hosting a panel discussion and open debate on the media's coverage of the Iraq War and there are some distinguished names participating. Join in and see the Webcast at the link below tonight at 6:00 EDT:
Welcome to the web coverage of the Reuters Iraq Newsmaker debate. This multimedia package includes a live webcast of the panel discussion, real-time blogging from around the world, a live chat, and related news. Please explore the entire experience as the panel addresses these issues: How accurately does the media tell the Iraq story? Can the media reflect reality, given the dangers and constraints? Is the agenda dominated by bad news? Do the Arab and Western media tell different stories?
