Real Reporting in Action

The Christian Science Monitor, in spite of its vaguely oxymoronic name, really seems to be the only organization doing real reporting in Iraq. The latest article I have come across is possibly the best writing I have seen in a news story in years. Unfortunately, it would appear that the forces of discord are holding the high ground at the moment. Then again when your enemy has the high ground it makes him a good target for air strikes.

Note that the first link above is from the Christian Science Monitor, the latter is from ABC. One is reporting and analysis. The other is a bad transcript.
