Iraqi Journalists Being Killed In "Staggering" Numbers
Iraqi journalists aiding U.S. news media are suffering far greater casualties than their American counterparts who are forced to live in fortified compounds and travel while embedded with the U.S. military, CNN Baghdad correspondent Michael Ware commented Friday. Appearing on CNN's American Morning, Ware said that it is extremely frustrating not to be able to cover the conflict independently. "We send out Iraqis, but honestly, they're being killed in droves. They're really on the journalistic front line. The number of Iraqi journalists who have died in the past year is staggering."
