Examining the war coverage...

By way of Jay Tea, comes the story of a journalist who seems to be on very friendly terms with terrorists.
The journalist in question is AP and Reuters photographer Bilal Hussein.
Jay has a good summary

I think it's indisputable that Mr. Hussein is not simply capturing images of the Iraqi war, but is actively cooperating with the terrorists. In fact, they like him so much that they will pose for him, in dramatic postures and weapons, helping him put them in their best light.

I think it's safe to say that Mr. Hussein clearly has sympathies in the war... and it's with those who target and kill civilians wholesale, those that behead hostages on videotape while screaming "God Is Great!," and send suicide bombers after such targets as school buses and marketplaces. And the AP and Reuters seem to be glad to continue to subsidize his efforts.
