In the last year, a number of television reporters made headlines after becoming emotional during live reports.
BBC news anchor Kate Silverton was reduced to tears while reporting on the aftermath of airstrikes in war-torn
Syria. Following her emotional outburst, Ms Silverton took to Twitter to say that her job was to be inscrutable and
impartial, “but I am also human”. The story about this crying anchor made it into several newspapers, with a
number of readers commenting online about whether or not they felt her behaviour was acceptable.

Much like historians and judges, received wisdom expects journalists to be objective and impartial or, simply put,
not emotional. This is not always the case, and perhaps it never has been. Increasingly, journalists acknowledge the emotional and ethical difficulties of their work, and the ways that emotions can be harnessed in reporting. This
begs the question: How has the relationship between news and emotion ebbed and flowed across time and
space? Why has it changed? And where will it go in the future?
