If you're an average person around the world who seeks out various sources for your news and information, in all likelihood, you may know more about Iraq than the western journalists who are there trying to cover the war. It's so dangerous in the area, that most reporters are confined to their hotel, relaying x-hand accounts of events, or even if they manage to get outside, the typical way is via military escort, at which point they're taken to scenes set up specifically for them. Don't expect much from these "Hotel Reporters" unless you're looking for details on the amenities at the Fallujah Hilton.
