VIDEO: In The Thick Of It – Haiti


As violence and turmoil continued to grip Port-au-Prince on Jan. 26, the OPC hosted an online panel discussion with reporters who have been covering Haiti over the past year of unrest. Though the program had already been planned earlier this month, it was held just one day after deadly clashes between police, armed gangs and protesters that left the panelists facing uncertain conditions and pressing news deadlines.

This program is the first installment of a new series launched by the OPC called In the Thick of It, bringing together journalists to discuss region-specific reporting challenges.
