Trauma Journalism

Terry Anderson: "It is only in the last twenty years or so that the trauma community began looking at the price the journalists themselves pay in their work. Like firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical techs, journalists are hard interviews—they don’t like to talk about themselves, at least not on that subject. Mark Masse’s work is part of a small but growing lexicon. I hope it will help to counter the unfortunately common view of news people as uncaring, careless voyeurs exploiting others’ pain for shallow reasons. We have to believe in what we do, or we couldn’t do it."
