9/11 Tribute Center Launches Exhibit on Covering Trauma

The 9/11 Tribute Center has launched an online exhibit featuring 40 multimedia stories of print, radio, television and online news reporters and producers who covered the September 11 terrorist attack and its long aftermath.

Broken up into five categories, the exhibit highlights the physical and emotional risks taken by New York reporters, and their struggles to balance accurate news coverage with a sensitivity to the raw feelings of anger, loss and confusion within their own communities. 

Those featured include Rich Bamberger, Aristide Economopoulos, Beth Fertig, David Handschuh, Paul Raushebush, Gulnara Samoilova, and the Dart Center's Bruce Shapiro:

This exhibit is one in a series based upon the Tribute Center's oral history project, which it began in 2005. It includes a lesson plan for students, aligned with Common Core Standards.
