Ethan Bronner, foreign editor of the New York Times, will address "Ethical and Other Dilemmas Faced by News Organizations in the Middle East" Wednesday, Feb. 23, at noon in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium.

From 1985 until 1997, Bronner worked at the Boston Globe. He served as a Middle East correspondent, based in Jerusalem, and he served as a Supreme Court and legal affairs correspondent in Washington, D.C.
