Foreign journalists can sometimes find themselves at odds with dictatorial regimes. Correspondents describe what it's like to report in countries controlled by dictators, and recount some of the hard ethical decisions they have been forced to make to protect themselves, their staff and their sources.

Guests:

Tom Gjelten, NPR correspondent

Ofeibea Quist-Arcton, NPR foreign correspondent, Dakar

Ethan Bronner, former deputy foreign editor of The New York Times; currently serving as Jerusalem bureau chief
