The Kalb Report. [No. 2002-2003-05, 2003-03-31], The War in Iraq: Journalism's Role and Responsibilities
Summary: "'The Kalb Report' is a periodic educational forum series produced jointly by The George Washington University, The Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University and The National Press Club, in Washington, D.C. During 2003, the series was underwritten by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

"Since 1994, the partnership has presented 36 forums on critical issues at the intersection of press and public policy. Guests have included Walter Cronkite, Ted Koppel, Dan Rather, New York Times Publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., CBS News President Andrew Heyward, Walter Isaacson, Bob Schieffer, Washington Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie, Jr., Richard C. Hottelet, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, USA Today Editor Karen Jurgensen, Madeleine Albright, Associated Press President Louis Boccardi and (then) USA Today Publisher Tom Curley, who has now succeeded Mr. Boccardi at the A.P.

"Each 'Kalb Report' is presented before an audience of several hundred college students and members of the working press in the main ballroom of The National Press Club. 'The Kalb Report' has appeared on C-SPAN, WHUT public television in Washington, D.C., WMAL/ABC Radio in Washington, CBS Radio Network, NewsChannel 8 in Washington, D.C., and National Public Radio. The Knight Foundation has also distributed 'The Kalb Report' series, on DVD, to journalism schools in the United States.

"Both the School of Media and Public Affairs at GW and the Shorenstein Center at Harvard are engaged in the study of press and public policy. This project fits well with the educational and professional leadership missions of the two participating universities and the National Press Club. We believe the series serves each institution and the public interest through frank discussions of the issues facing our free and independent press.

"Over the course of his distinguished career, Marvin Kalb served for 30 years as Chief Diplomatic Correspondent for CBS News and NBC News and as moderator of NBC''s 'Meet the Press.' He is the recipient of every major honor in journalism and was the founding director of The Shorenstein Center. He also has the distinction of being the last person personally hired at CBS News by Edward R. Murrow.

"The executive producer for 'The Kalb Report' series is Michael Freedman a vice president and professorial lecturer in journalism at GW. Freedman also served as general manager of CBS Radio Network News and a managing editor of United Press International. He is the recipient of some 85 honors in broadcast journalism including 14 Edward R. Murrow awards and the 2003 Peter Hackes Memorial Award from the RTNDA Washington, D.C. Chapter, for contributions to broadcast journalism in the nation's capital.

"Our Peabody entries were presented in Spring 2003, just before, during and after the invasion of Iraq. They explore 'Corporate Responsibility in the Age of War,' 'Journalism's Role and Responsibilities (during the war),' and the reflections of Ted Koppel in a forum entitled 'Back from the War.' Mr. Koppel's discussion with Mr. Kalb was his only interview of this kind."--2003 Peabody Awards entry form.

This is program 5 of the 2002-2003 season. Panelists are Bill Plante (CBS), David Sanger (Harvard), Tim Wolzien (Sanford Bernstein & Co.), and Victoria Clarke (Assistant Secretary, U.S. Dept. of Defense).

Following their remarks they answered questions from the audience."--episode description from user copy container.
