Technology

  • In between each World War, films and newsreels are put into theaters with sound to show the public what the war is about.

  • Films including invasions, bombings, concentration camps, etc.

  • In the Vietnam War, newsreels were replaced by televisions, with more than 100 million television sets in America.

  • Tapes are now made of the war and sent back to America so people don’t have to listen about it on the radio and they can see what's going on with the war in simply 15-30 mins. of watching a film.

  • Now in during the Iraq War, reporters can use satellite to relay any message to anywhere in the world.

  • For example, fax machines, laptops, cell phone, etc.

  • A story in Iraq is transferred back to America in a matter of seconds.


Dangers of getting the information

Dangers of getting the information

  • It was extremely dangerous covering the World War I and II, and Vietnam War

  • Peggy Hull is one of the few female war correspondents who focused on the lives of the soldiers on the front lines

  • Reporters were captured and arrested if they were caught.

  • For example, Joe Morton, Associated Press correspondent , was executed without a trial

  • He was capture far behind enemy lines.

  • A main reason why it was so dangerous was because correspondents were able to run around to wherever they wanted to find a story.

  • Now during the Iraq War, US military restricts press to go to certain areas in the war area.

  • Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel Pearl was kidnapped on January 2002, so there are still risks out there.


Shaping the public s opinion

Shaping the Public’s Opinion

  • In the past, correspondents made the public in favor of the war.

  • Only publishing positive stuff and if you published negative reports you would have been called an anti-American

  • Now in days they report everything

  • Making war seemed awful and negative
