Elizabeth Palmer News Correspondent, CBS

Elizabeth Palmer has a long and distinguished history as a journalist in print, radio and television for Canadian and American broadcasters, covering war-torn regions and conflicts around the world. She brings an experienced and nuanced perspective on the ethics and realities of the use of physical force in both domestic and international arenas.
Starting her journalism career with a job as a reporter on the Haney Gazette, a tiny newspaper in the Fraser Valley, she eventually joined the BBC and later the CBC. In 1994, she opened the CBC’s Latin American bureau in Mexico City, and in 1997 moved to Moscow to become bureau chief and senior correspondent in Moscow for the CBC. In 2001, Elizabeth joined CBS News, covering Moscow before moving to London.
Elizabeth has covered many major international stories and has filed reports from locations including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Israel and South Africa, among others. Elizabeth covered the U.N. Weapons inspections in Iraq, the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, the Chechen-hostage crisis in Moscow, the Chiapas Indian uprising in Mexico, the Palestinian intifada in the West Bank and Gaza – to name a few. She was one of the first Western journalists reporting from Northern Iraq in 2001 and was the first to interview Afghani leader Hamid Karzai after the assassination of his vice president. For the past four years, Elizabeth has traveled regularly in and out of Afghanistan and Iraq and in November of 2004 was embedded with the U.S. Marines for the battle of Fallujah.
She has just won two major American journalism prizes for her reporting from Beslan, North Ossetia (Russia) in September of 2004, the site of the terrorist school seige: the Edward R. Murrow Award and the Sigma Delta Chi award from the American Society of Professional Journalists.
Elizabeth also held positions as a documentary reporter on science and international affairs (1990–94) and a business reporter (1988–90) for the CBC in Toronto.
