Last night Ron and I watched an excellent documentary on CBC about journalism in Iraq. Do you know that 80 journalists have been killed there already? Its hard to get the real story on Iraq because there is so much propaganda and well, journalists keep getting captured, tortured, murdered.
One thing I do to gain insight is to read the blogs of people who live there and blog from there. There is a big list on the sidebar of Cyberpols. I particularly like Baghdad Burning. Go for a surf, its very enlightening.
