Under Fire: Journalists In Combat - The Psychological Cost Of Covering War. Former AP Bureau Chief Ian Stewart, who was shot in the head while on assignment in West Africa, is on the line from New Mexico to talk about this year's Oscar Short List documentary contender.

Touching on the politics and the economics of the media; on location war junkies, why journalism has become a dirty word; Chris Hedges in post-traumatic war zone meltdown and the twisted cosmic joke of it all; sexing up the news; and what Clockwork Orange and the cauldron of rage have to do with combat reporting today.
