What passes for reporting from Iraq in most of our media has been nothing but a listing of our dead and wounded with no context about what our soldiers are doing and why. There is an old saying that the slickest way to lie is to tell just enough of the truth then shut up.
I you would like to read an example of real reporting from someone who is embeded with a group of our soldiers in a real hot-spot in Iraq, read Michael Yon's " Gates of Fire" report on his blog "Michael Yon : On Line Magazine". What makes his work all the more amazing is that it is totally self funded via donations from folk who read his blog. Read his report, and if it moves you consider making a donation.
Hugh Hewitt has a list of bloggers who have written about this report and a link to follow-up from BlackFive about the wounded men who are central to Michael's report.
