From yesterday's New York Times:
A Respected Face, but Is It News or an Ad?
By Melody Peterson
Aaron Brown of CNN, Walter Cronkite and other broadcast journalists have been hired to appear in videos resembling newscasts that are actually paid for by drug makers and other health care companies, blurring the line between journalism and advertising.
Story.

Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach: here are some very graphic pictures of Iraqi bombing victims. DO NOT click on the link unless you are prepared to see exactly that. Damian sent me this link this morning; I had seen the link on Fark or This Modern World a while ago, but since I didn't feel up to looking at the pictures myself, I didn't think it was ok to post them on this blog. Even today I was only able to look at a few of them. But I think it's important to have these images accessible, as they are evidence of the results of this war that most of America has not seen. Our national news media has apparently been alone in the world in not showing pictures like these to their viewers; not that I condone sensationalism, or revelling in the violence they portray, of course. But I think that NOT showing us the true and full effects of our country's actions is irresponsible.
