In my Media Ethics class we read an e-mail that Farnaz Fassihi of The Wall Street Journal sent to friends about her experience in Baghdad. It was really interesting seeing the things that aren't being reported on.
She's in a lot of hot water for expressing her opinions though perhaps unwittingly. But as Jay Rosen writes, "Fassihi's mistake, if you could call it that, was not doing a better job of getting those observations, intended only for friends and family, onto the pages of the Wall Street Journal."
Take a look at her e-mail at: http://www.commondreams.org/views04/0930-15.htm
