For newsrooms across the country, covering the war with Israel and Palestine has been tremendously difficult. Tensions are high, emotions are very fragile, and resources are at record lows. Today, we’re going to try to give you some idea of just what it has been like for journalists to work under these conditions.
Canadaland Editor-in-Chief, Karyn Pugliese, sits down with Dave Seglins, a CBC journalist who spent 25 years as a frontline reporter and investigative journalist. After experiencing work-related PTSD, he’s purposed himself as a champion of well-being in the newsroom. She also speaks with Brent Jolly, the president of the Canadian Association of Journalists, about what he’s hearing from reporters across the country.
