Good Morning from the Georges Conference

We're here at the Lippmann House for the first of many sessions on journalism today. We're joined by Bob Giles, the Georges Family, Ellen Tuttle and a room full of bleary-eyed college students from along the Eastern seaboard.

Our guests this morning are Hannah Allam. Cairo Bureau Chief for McClatchy Newspapers, and Andrew Meldrum, Senior Editor and Regional Editor for Africa at the Global Post, on reporting from the field.

They're repeating many of the same themes from Charlie's address last night: get out into the field.

...a warning from Ms. Allam for those of you thinking of writing abroad: "You can be sucked into war reporting."
