Reflection on International Journalism

Journalism students who aspire to become international correspondents are concerned about the worsening media credibility in a troubled world. Yet on the other hand, they frequently ask how news coverage of this troubled world can contribute to making it safer and bearable for the next generation.

After the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq in 2002, several media critics increasingly bedeviled foreign correspondents and the international news media in general for the way they covered those wars. The criticism of foreign correspondents stemmed from the debate about embedded journalists and their role in framing the wars in the interest of the United States.

International News More Requisite in Troubled World

Demands by internationalists in academia to overhaul the education system have grown louder in recent months. Professors who specialize in global scholarship and pedagogy have argued that universities in the United States have been slow at adopting curricula which would deliver new global skills and expertise necessary for students to excel in a more competitive world.

The rapid growth of the internet and other forms of communication has changed the way citizens from all corners of the world communicate, learn about their immediate environment and the world, conduct business, govern, mobilize, socialize, and influence others.
