Nicholas Daniloff: Of Spies and Spokesmen: A Cold War Correspondent Looks at Russia Today
April 30, 2009
Journalism can be a dangerous profession and, according to one index, Russia is among one of the most perilous places to report the news. In this country - one that likes to publicize its democratic credentials - journalists are regularly targeted for murder and no one is held accountable. Nicholas Daniloff, Professor of Journalism at Northeastern University and a 30-year media veteran, draws upon his own international reporting experiences (including thirteen days locked up by the KGB) to explore the challenges and possibilities of writing in the former Soviet Union today.
