Iraqi Warblogs

Independent weblogs are "changing not only the way the new war will be waged, but also the way citizens can get information about the conflict," reports Dan Fost. Christopher Albritton, an independent journalist who used to work for AP and the New York Daily News, is offering independent reporting on the war on his weblog, including a well-written recent essay titled "War - What's This One Good For?" Another journalist, CNN correspondent Kevin Sites, posted chatty accounts from Iraq on his personal "warblog" until March 21, when CNN asked him to suspend writing. However, archives of his earlier writings are still available. And while foreign correspondents have mostly fled Baghdad, someone who lives there is posting vivid accounts of life in that city before and during the outbreak of war."
