Journalism as a 21st Century Career

English majors hear a lot of dire statements about the less-than-abundant job prospects awaiting them after graduation, but many remain hopeful about their futures despite these nerve-wracking warnings. Some are interested in going into journalism, a field that seems particularly risky to enter in the digital age. At a recent Berkeley Connect in English event, Professor Mark Danner spoke with students about his experiences as a journalist and academic, and delivered a welcome message: despite the uncertainty involved in pursuing a career in an industry that is very much in flux, its not entirely hopeless!

Double Blind

When Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, the Al Qaeda terrorist with a $25 million bounty on his head, decided to show to the world videotapes of the planning and execution of his terror attacks, he delivered them to Michael Ware. Ware, a reporter for Time magazine and CNN, brought the grisly footage to the world’s attention, making it clear that for the U.S. any victory in Iraq was very far off.

At the 2015 Telluride Film Festival, Ware and co-director Bill Guttentag spoke with Mark Danner about the film.
