Michael Yon has yet another great post up. This one's about why the media is so wrong in their reporting of the events in Iraq.
"Often I am asked to withhold information due to the immediate sensitivty. And so, I never release the slightest hint. But then somebody in Baghdad--three steps removed from the action here in Mosul-- releases it to CNN and the rest of the world. What is seen on television and in the papers is practically always inaccurate, or is at least poorly framed. But I rarely waste a breath trying to correct the information. It's too late. Life is busy here"
So don't believe everything you see or hear on the news. Chances are, it's wrong. What you should do if seek out sites like Michael's. Done by someone who's actually there.
