Just 10 years after the U.S. invasion, Iraq is already being called the “Forgotten War.” News organizations began scaling back on-the-ground reporting there soon after the U.S. declared an end to major combat operations in May 2003, and today only a handful of foreign bureaus remain in Baghdad. The costs of staying were high — both in terms of finances and safety. The Iraq War was the deadliest conflict for reporters documented by the Committee to Protect Journalists. How did the danger of reporting shape news coverage of the war? What are the enduring narratives out of Iraq from the past decade? How are local and international media covering the latest wave of deadly attacks that have renewed fears of civil war?

Join New America NYC and a group of brave journalists for a conversation about media coverage of the Iraq War and the country’s reconstruction – as well as the impact the story has had on their own lives.
