Three Pieces

Here are three award-winning Dexter Filkins despatches from Iraq. I'm aware of the multiple failings of the MSM; but it seems to me absurd to argue that reporters like Filkins aren't doing heroic work under extremely dangerous circumstances. Bloggers are important in keeping the MSM honest; but when the blogosphere degenerates into indiscriminate slams against journalists doing their job, it's time for a little correction.
