Embedded AdvertisingJohn Pavlik/Columbia InteractiveIn this video excerpt from his e-seminar Journalism in the Digital Age, Professor John Pavlik demonstrates how embedded adverstising works. Digital broadcasting allows for interactive video with "clickable" advertising and transactional services. These are now used in entertainment only, but infiltration of news by advertising has occurred in the past. In the seminar, Pavlik asks whether the financial pressures on journalism will erode editorial independence as use of such technologies spreads.

The Rohde to Srebrenica: A Case Study of Human Rights ReportingElements of International Reporting, School of Journalism/CCNMTLThe School of Journalism presents a fascinating, sobering look at Bosnian-Serb war crimes in 1995 and the perils faced by war reporters. This site follows the journey of Christian Science Monitor reporter, David Rohde, as he investigates a spy-plane photo of possible mass graves in the town of Srebrenica. Not only did he uncover compelling evidence of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust, but he established that Serbian President Slobodan Milosovic and Dutch peacekeeping troops knew about it. The site provides a war chronology, video clips from Rohde and his editor, and articles on related issues, such as journalistic ethics.
