News media in Iraq 

Rantingprofs has posted an email purportedly from an Army public affairs officer in Iraq who is a little critical of the news media's coverage of the country.

He charges that the news people have the major story lines figured out before they arrive, and merely work to fill in the details. That's lazy at best, dishonest at worst, and not the least bit surprising.

After reading this Lt's description of the sources the news media uses, I'm leaning heavily toward "dishonest" rather than "lazy."

Read the letter, and if you think Iraq coverage is accurate, have your eyes opened.
