Hue, Tradman. As in Way.

I read Dispatches and Rumors and tons of other stuff. The tenor of this last decade's reporting is just pathetic, geared to soft-pedal the gov't line, whatever the hell that is.

Here's the Nixon enemies list, just the media, from 1973. I believe this is the first list of two lists (one revised) revealed a few months apart in 1973...

I don't know how much of this list is due to reporting on the war, or how much is due to campaign shenanigans.

Nor do I know who all these folks are, or whether they are photojournalists or not. I just know things are not the same. Embedded journalists are muzzled journalists. We ought to agree on that, surely.

Folks were on those lists for a variety of reasons - most perceived slights, insults, or threats - others relative to stands against the war. They were reminiscent of J. Edgar's lists.

Above posters are all correct - media acquiescing to embedding, media becoming components of larger corporate conglomerates, reduced funding of news organizations, and news now often being rated as entertainment as opposed to news. There has also been an upswing in the murders of journalists worldwide.



And with the advent of the Internet and blurring of lines between professional and citizen journalists, governments and dictators now view almost anyone as a potential threat and as a result press credentials just don't carry the same protective weight as they once did.

I remember that vulture child shot winning the pulitzer. I was an aspireing photojournalist at the time and followed those sort of things. The bang bang club was quite the bunch. I never realized how much being white allowed those guys to work at the time. Watching the movie educated me on that aspect of it. The climate is way harsher now for western journalists these days. Read the photo credits for what is getting published from the middle east now and you will rarely see western names. The work climate for westerners is simply too dangerous.

I was a photojournalist - so very, very happy to not be one. I personally don't need or want that imagery in my head or life anymore so it's not all that hard for me to understand why we don't see much of it in our media.

This story has some interesting imagery. Some of the looks on their faces really shows where they're at.
