“This War Changes You”

This week’s Broadcasting & Cable has a must-read cover story titled “Why Journalists Risk Their Lives To Cover Iraq.” It includes interviews with Clark Bentson, John Berman, James Blue, Richard Engel, Lara Logan, Mimi Spillane, and Michael Ware.
The last segment, titled “This war changes you,” is especially important.

“It is hard to come back from Iraq and then do a story about Brad and Angelina’s baby,” ABC’s Berman writes. “When I was in Iraq, I heard in the background about Barbaro, the horse that was injured. It is a story I probably would be assigned. In Iraq, I couldn’t make myself give a crap about it at all. A horse breaking his leg doesn’t measure up.”
