The Dangerous Realities Of Conflict Reporting

On Wednesday, Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was killed by sniper fire in the West Bank city of Jenin while covering Israeli military raids. We discuss the dangers journalists face when they step into conflict zones and how tragedies like this affect press freedom. Then, we get into the importance of having female role models and representation in journalism.
