You go to war with the newspaper you have

Philip Barron: So how does <b>your</b> newspaper cover issues relating to the Iraq War?
When the subject is an Army lieutenant colonel who is publicly accusing generals of intellectual and moral failure in prosecuting the war in Iraq, you might expect probing analysis or historical framework from newspaper military affairs columnists. Unless you're a reader of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, that is, in which case you'd probably expect gossipy speculation on the accuser's career future.
