Protracted proxy conflicts, increasing dangers to journalists covering wars, budget constraints and, at times, an apathetic public have helped drive a disturbing trend of news organizations committing fewer resources, air time minutes and column inches to today’s armed conflicts. In his upcoming lecture, filmmaker and journalist Justin Kenny (Peabody and Emmy winning Foreign Editor/Senior Producer of the PBS NewsHour from 2012-2015) will unpack the problem, it’s cost and propose some solutions.
