A very thoughtful and balanced piece and an insight into the effects of monitoring a welter of uncut footage of wars and disasters. I have been a war correspondent and I know how I was affected by what I saw. But I think less thought is sometimes given to people who, like you, actually see far more of the grisly and heartbreaking outcomes of such events because you’re wading through hours of footage from multiple sources. The fact that you are sitting at a desk many thousands of miles away is irrelevant. You are still immersed in the tragedy and the images that the public don’t get to see (unless they choose to seek them out online) because they’re deemed to be too graphic for television news. I’m glad Anthony Feinstein has chosen to research this. I hope his study won’t be the last.
