Screening of the 2017 film Shock and Awe and discussion with John Walcott.

About this Event

The Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs at LSU’s Manship School of Mass Communication will host a screening of the movie, “Shock and Awe”and a discussion about the value of journalism to democracy with journalist John Walcott on September 25. Walcott’s work was featured in this 2017 movie for his investigative reporting on the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Dubbed by HuffPost as “the reporting team that got Iraq right,” the film tells the story of how the team of Washington Bureau journalists at Knight Ridder, Inc.—including Walcott—investigated and reported on the Bush Administration's 2003 bombing campaign Iraq at the start of the war.
