Michael's post And now, for the rest of the story.... really explained how the major media works in Iraq and why the reporting gets slanted. It's all about the Benjamins.

Be sure to check out his post, The Battle for Mosul: Dispatch II

UPDATE: More from Iraq from Proteus, Sanctuary

Is humiliation the same as torture? It is not -- that's why the words are spelled differently. To get to the heart of the difference, assume you were a prisoner at Abu Graib, and your interrogator started to remove your fingers one by one with bolt cutters. How long would it take you to beg to be posed with women’s panties on your head? Yeah, I thought so.

This is not to excuse in any way the shameful behavior committed there by a few individuals who clearly are not fit to wear the uniform of the United States. They have disgraced us all and done incalculable damage. But if producing humiliation and fear is now to be defined as “torture,” what international human rights organization will be appointed to help the surviving readers of The New York Times?
