Peace Journalism

Do common conventions of reporting instead inflame conflict and omit viable non-violent options for resolving conflicts. Can severe hate speech and alarmist propagandathat threaten lives in developing nations be quelled with targeted
training? Our conversation today starts with Steve Youngblood, the
director for the Center for Global Peace Journalism at Park University in
Parkville, Missouri. Also we'll hear from Ugandan Journalist Gloria Laker
who took Youngblood's "Peace Journalism" workshops in Uganda, then helped
facilitate them to other journalists across her homeland. Finally,
Humankind radio producer David Freudberg, who calls for the development of
a "Peace Beat" at news organizations, offers his thoughts on the
responsibilities of journalists to cover conflict thoughtfully.
