Obtaining Information From Iraq

Hilzoy at ObWi cites the NYT article on the declining coverage by traditional media for the war in Iraq. The decline of adequate American media coverage in Iraq has been a problem since around the Petraeus/Crocker testimony in September 2007. Lucky for us, there's a host of international media outlets and blogs still devoted to one of the most important issues of the decade (see the sidebar to your right).

Of course, television is so 20th century. Blogging, Youtube, and other forms of web media have become the new Videodrome. It meets all the wickets of being 1) a bioelectronic addiction, 2) the ultimate addiction, and 3) shattering your reality.

Long live the new flesh.
