As we talk about covering war…

Two interesting takes (one very hard to read) on aspects of covering conflict.

First, read this New York Times article, “My Interview With a Rohingya Refugee: What Do You Say to a Woman Whose Baby Was Thrown Into a Fire?”


On technology and covering news, read “Why the World’s Leading Photojournalists Are Ditching Their DSLRs to Shoot on Instagram.” The journalist mentioned is one of the photographers profiled in “Dying to Tell the Story.”
