As technology advances, reporting from remote battlegrounds becomes faster and easier. Gone are the days of transmitting stories by Morse code; reporters with cellular phones and digital video cameras send news of war immediately into millions of homes.
War Stories, an exhibit from the Newseum, explores the technology and reporting that goes into covering a war. Click on any conflict from the Civil War to Bosnia/Kosovo to learn more. Read how editors ignored reporters questions about the effectiveness of the strategy in Vietnam. Learn about the Espionage Act of 1917, which prohibited "disloyal" newspapers from being mailed.
Video interviews and an essay by journalist Harold Evans complete this engaging exhibit.
