If NYT isn't going to tell us what is going on in Iraq what is the point? If they are going to report on what people think and do, that's great and what I want to read in the paper. If they're just going to give us some sort of party line - dictacted by the administration? - that a puppet government reports, there's no point in them bothering to cover things that aren't the daily attacks. I do not feel NYT has bothered to get average people in Iraq to talk so that we can know what they are thinking and I believe that is a huge mistake. We suffer from a lack of perspectives. NYT needs to open up the pipelines and let information flow.
