Mission Statement

The Bureau for International Reporting is an independent non-profit production company dedicated to the public service of bringing objectively produced, under-reported international news stories to an American audience. Only a truly informed public can fulfill the promise of a democratic society; at a time when America?s interests are increasingly entwined in global affairs, we seek to fill the gap left by broadcast news organizations as they scale back their foreign news bureaus and air time dedicated to international issues.

BIO

Jason Maloney is a freelance news and documentary producer living in New York. His most recent work includes a report for PBS Newshour and HDNet World Report on the civil war in Northern Uganda, and an hour-long special for PBS Now on publicly financed elections in the US. From 2005 to early 2006 he developed and served as editorial producer on a major documentary for the New York Times and the Canadian Broadcasting Company on nuclear proliferation and the AQ Khan network. The report, called 'Nuclear Jihad', recently won a DuPont Award. In the summer of 2004, Jason traveled to the Darfur region of Sudan to report for the CBS News program 60 Minutes on the humanitarian crisis there. His footage captured some of the first images of atrocities committed within Darfur itself. From 2002 to 2003, he worked with an investigative unit at New York Times Television on two co-productions for PBS Frontline. "Chasing the Sleeper Cell" and "A Dangerous Business" both earned substantial recognition. While at NYTTV, Jason also produced reports for PBS Newshour on the Iraqi Opposition (2003) and PBS Now on Saudi financing of terror (2002). While based in Southeast Asia in 2001-2002, Jason produced, shot and edited "A Dirty War" for PBS Now with Bill Moyers on the civil war in Aceh, Indonesia. In 1999, he produced his first independent documentary while on a Pew Journalism Fellowship in Guinea-Bissau and France. From 1996 to 2001 Jason worked at ABC News Primetime Live, with assignments that took him from Siberia to Yemen to the Deep South. "The Unwanted Children of Russia" won the DuPont, Overseas Press Club, and RFK awards. "Germ Warfare: Weapons of Terror" and "Attack on the USS Cole" both won the New York Festivals Award. Jason holds a BA from Dartmouth College and a Masters from the London School of Economics in International Relations. He is a member of the Directors Guild of America and a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
