Ben,

I have not been impressed with the news coverage of the Iraqi War. I feel the photos have been highly edited so to highlight the glamor and glory and not the blood and carnage and horrors of war. The coverage reminds me more of the romanticised paintings of war, before photography was invented. The coverage looks more to be propaganda then pure photo journalism, if it really does exist. I do not know personally. I had a short stint as a stringer for a regional paper so my experience in this area is minimal at best. Their isn't any one image or photographer that stands out in my mind. I feel the coverage has been mediocre at best and more likely, highly propagandaized.
