SINCE THE ATTACKS on September 11, 2001, Elizabeth Palmer has traversed the Middle East, reporting on some of the world’s most complex, catastrophic conflicts for the CBS Evening News. She has reported on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, uprisings and press crackdowns in Iran, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. She is also one of the few Western broadcast journalists to report extensively from within Syria as the country’s civil uprising spiraled into a chaotic war of attrition.

For that work in Syria, conducted over more than a dozen trips into the country, Palmer is accepting an Alfred I. duPont Award, the broadcast journalism equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize, which she will be presented at a ceremony on Tuesday evening. The honor recognizes her series of courageous daily news reports on what she calls “one of the great humanitarian tragedies of our time.”

ICYMI: A “potentially seismic” change comes to Facebook

Palmer spoke to CJR from London about the destruction she witnessed, the challenges of reporting from the front lines, and her position as a role model for women interested in combat journalism. The following conversation has been edited for length and clarity.

Since September 11, you’ve been on the Middle East conflict beat pretty much nonstop. Can you give some context for the level of tragedy you’ve seen during the Syrian Civil War? With few American troops in the country, it seems like it has received less coverage than earlier conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In my career—and I’ve been covering conflict for more than two decades—the kind of things we saw in Syria I’ve only ever seen twice before. Once was only in photographs; it was Berlin after the Second World War. The other, that I saw with my own eyes, was Grozny, after the Russians had finished bombing it to smithereens to end the Second Chechen War.
