Journalists in Iraq: A Survey of Reporters On The Front Lines

In November 2007, the Project for Excellence in Journalism published this survey of reporters working on the front lines in Iraq. The report includes responses from 111 journalists who have worked or are currently working in Iraq, and the majority of them have worked there for at least seven months since the war began. The survey for this report was conducted from September to November 2007, and there are a number of interesting findings that came out of this investigation. Almost nine out of ten journalists stated that their local staff cannot carry any type of reporting equipment (including a notebook) because it is too dangerous to be identified as working with the western media. Most of the journalists interviewed for the survey also said they had a positive view of the U.S. military's embedding program, as it afforded them access that would not be possible without it.
