Media Roundtable: Coverage of Russia's month-long invasion of Ukraine
On this edition of Your Call's Media Roundtable, we're discussing coverage of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the role journalists play in documenting the immense suffering of people impacted by war.
UNHCR chief Filippo Grandi said, "Over the last four weeks, the world has watched in disbelief. Countless lives have been lost while millions of others have been completely upended." Women and children account for some 90 percent of those who have fled and more than 1.5 million children are among those who have left Ukraine.
At least five journalists and media workers have been killed while reporting on Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
