Michael Yon has another great post up. This one about a firefight he was in. Just one thing. It's LONG. I couldn't even read it all, my eyes started to blur on me. But make sure you check out the photos he took. This is what a journalist is. There are actual journalists anymore save a few that retain the old ways. Most are now just prompter jockeys, or reporters if you like. The ones like Michael Yon are the last true jounalists out there. There's not many in the media who're out with the troops anymore. Who are actually in the heat of the battles. Who could be shot and killed at any moment. Most of the reporters in Iraq stay at their hotels and maybe catch a soldier who happens to be walking by or may go to an area that was involved in a fight after everything has calmed down. Michael Yon's right there catching these soldiers as the fight and as they get shot. Head over and read is dispatch.
