Appalling U.S. War Coverage 

Excellent quote from Tech Central Daily. This pretty much says what I think about the appalling U.S. news coverage of Iraq. I wish everyone in the United States understood this situation, before they dismiss the war as "lost".

"Also, and this is probably the most disturbing part, many journalists have not figured out that they're being targeted by the enemy on purpose to help shape the coverage of the war. The insurgents don't want the reporters out and about running around. They're completely satisfied with the "balcony" report and some video shot by a stringer of the daily car bomb. That's the message that the insurgents want to get out. They don't realize that warfare is both the kinetic and non-kinetic. And, therefore, they miss how they're being played by the insurgents. I wish more reporters realized that."
