On this week’s episode of Up Close, we’re looking at new kinds of warfare, including the consequences for non-combatants.
Many people talk about the idea that cyber warfare is coming and that we’ll someday be seeing large-scale attacks that have ramifications in the real world. But senior correspondent at The Daily Beast Shane Harris reports that cyber war is here, and has been for some time. We discuss the reality and the consequences in his book, @War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex.
To know more about war and what our businesses and governments are doing, we need reporting on those things. But journalists are increasingly facing great dangers in their professions. Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists Joel Simon is the author of The New Censorship: Inside the Global Battle for Media Freedom.
