USAF Public Affairs Restrictions to Hinder Press Coverage
March 20, 2018
New training requirements for U.S. Air Force public affairs officials and their commanders could have a chilling effect not just on investigative journalism, but on more benign coverage as well. In this edition of Update-1, NPC Broadcast/Podcast Team member Adam Konowe interviews Jill Aitoro, executive editor of Defense News about this development, one in a series undertaken by the Defense Department in the last year and a half. Aitoro also addresses the potential development of a stand-alone military space corps, as well as the evolution of trade and mainstream journalism over the past decade.
