Dr. Pintak on "Here and Now": Pakistan Named The Most Dangerous Country For Journalists

Dr. Lawrence Pintak, Founding Dean of the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University.

Dr. Lawrence Pintak, Founding Dean of The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, is an expert on media and journalism in the Middle East. He was on today's edition of WBUR's Here and Now discussing the current state of journalism in Pakistan, where reporters are frequently targets for violence. As Dr. Pintak points out, the danger still doesn't deter many journalists from their mission to independently report on the state of their country, and pass those journalism values on to Pakistani students.
