Kimberly Dozier on war reporting, deadly attacks, and what may happen next in Ukraine
Kimberly Dozier is one of the only people in the world who can relate to what wounded Fox News correspondent Benjamin Hall is going through. When Dozier was reporting for CBS in Baghdad in 2006, she survived a bomb blast that left two colleagues dead. Dozier reflects on the trauma and the road to recovery for wounded war correspondents; describes how journalists are mobilizing to help Hall; and underscores the importance of reporting in conflict zones like Ukraine. She also warns against letting “image fatigue” set in, arguing that “getting tired of the war helps Putin.”
