First they came for the journalists
In light of the most recent episode of the harassment of journalists in Iraq, in which award-winner Ali-Fadhal was carted away in the night in a blaze of US military gunfire, jpol hears crickets from the US media: "What I want to know is why the U.S. mainstream media continues to ignore incidents that strongly suggest a war on journalists in Iraq (and elsewhere) by the U.S. military. As far as I can tell, not a single outlet of the U.S. mainstream media reported this incident."
In fact, more journalists have been killed in the Iraq War than in the entire Vietnam War.
jpol lists the various reports and investigations indicating a disturbing pattern of the targeting of media. Yet they refuse to report on it. I guess I foolishly expected that they'd at least look after their own. (BoomanTribune)
