[edit] Information

In television's first comprehensive look at an extremely timely issue, Reporting America at War explores the role of American journalists in the pivotal conflicts of the 20th century -- and beyond.

From San Juan Hill to the beaches of Normandy, from the jungles of Vietnam to the Persian Gulf, the three-hour documentary from acclaimed filmmaker Stephen Ives tells the dramatic and often surprising stories of the reporters who brought the wars home to us. Through the lens of their experiences, the series examines the challenges of frontline reporting and illuminates the role of the correspondent in shaping the way wars have been remembered and understood.

Featuring profiles of such distinguished historical figures as Richard Harding Davis, Edward R. Murrow and Ernie Pyle, as well as conversations with some of the most influential correspondents of our time -- including Walter Cronkite, Andy Rooney, David Halberstam, Morley Safer, Peter Arnett, Christiane Amanpour and Chris Hedges -- Reporting America at War offers fresh and compelling perspective on the history of America's military conflicts, and raises provocative questions about the rights and responsibilities of a free press in times of war.
