The War Behind the War
Today on Sujal's site I saw a link to a feature on the CBC website. The CBC interviewed 50+ journalists who were in Iraq about their stories, how they covered the war, and what they were allowed to report back. Deadline: Iraq is the result.
It was fascinating and horrifying to read the journalists' accounts of the war, without a (powerful) filter. Reading this story reminds me how differently news can be spun. It also reminds me how much I took for granted getting much of my news from a non-profit organization that operates under the BBC model and is not driven by making money like most of the news organizations in the US.
