Why News from Iraq is Phony

Skepticism is a mild word for the feelings one gets when reading news from Iraq in the American mainstream media. Now, we know why.

"Of course, really the primary reason is they're just not doing journalism. They're taking the information provided by the Pentagon, and by the Bush Administration, and they're not questioning it. They're citing these sources, and considering them irrefutable official sources just because they're in the government, when the reality is a journalist's job is to hold the government to account. They're just simply not doing their job."

Read about Dahr Jamail, an unembedded reporter who gets to the real news.
