At Front Lines, Bearing Witness in Real Time

nytimes.com — My social media feed has taken a bloody turn in the last few weeks and I'm hardly alone. Along with the usual Twitter wisecracking and comments on incremental news, I have seen bodies scattered across fields and hospitals in Ukraine and Gaza. I have read posts from reporters who felt threatened, horrified and revolted.
