    Probably the best war correspondent today, but his messages haven't been one sided, and the photos always compelling. Here's his and excerpt from his latest 'dispatch':

    I do not think there is any question about that assertion. It also pertains to most elements of the MSM. If the Iraq event is not a homicide bombing, secular murder, or IED attack, it gets almost no exposure in the media. Even if the event is a successful military operation, unless it involves the capture of some high ranking Al Qaeda pos, it receives little coverage. The first of the following links has been previously posted. It offers some YouTube video showing activities of the MultiNational Force in Iraq; most of which could not be further from the MSM light of day. The second link is from the US Army Corps of Engineers - Gulf Region Division. It shows video concerning reconstruction efforts in Iraq. Such reconstruction efforts almost never appear on the MSM unless it is to report about waste or corruption. Much of the Green-Zoned MSM and their stateside studio cronnies are determined to see America lose in Iraq. The following few video clips offer some counterbalance to the black perspective streamed everyday by the talking heads on TV.
