“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Moral courage is in the spotlight today given an upsurge in authoritarian regimes worldwide. To date, 88 investigative journalists have been killed in the Israeli /Hamas war.

Why do investigative journalists stand up to intolerant regimes, often single-handedly?In the book, Moral Courage, 19 international journalists explain their rational for the work they do.

We will be speaking with Canadian neuro-psychiatrist Professor Anthony Feinstein who has a strong and lauded track record in the field of conflict journalism research and we will learn what motivates investigative journalists to expose crime and corruption, despite the greed, personal risks involved.

Please join “Be Bold America!” on Sunday, March 24 at 5:00 pm to learn how these people literally put their bodies on the line for the rest of us to learn the truth.
