Iraq War News Comes From 9 People

Remember the embedded reporters? Yeah, Geraldo, that’s right. So, where does information about the war in Iraqi come from?

You’ll see that of those 9 reporters, 3 were from the Armed Forces’ Stars & Stripes, 1 from AFN (Armed Force Network), 1 from the Charlotte Observer, 1 from the BBC, 1 from the AP, 1 from RAI, and 1 from Polish Radio. All the rest of the "coverage" of the Iraq war on that day came from reporters hunkered down in the hotels and other locations under the rubric "Baghdad News Bureaus." [Source]

This chart shows the nine’s reporting locations on September 19, 2006.

Thanks to Instapundit for the link.

(Not thrilling audio. Just a simulcast of the above text to get my feet wet with audio.)
