embedded journalism

even though embedded journalism gives the american people a first hand view of the war, i think that it does create a biast one. instead of seeing the war from a third person perspective and seeing just the facts of the war, the american public is seeing a more personal and emotional side of the war as they are seeing soldiers as real people who have families and lives that are outside of the war. This can be both positive and negative. It can positive for the soldiers because the people see their efforts and courage to protect us. It can be negative for the government because the people can see the destruction and damage first hand and have an emotional feeling towards not wanting all of it to take place.

Biased? All reporting has its biases. I think the real problem is that embedded reporting is too superficial on its own. It has produced some good reporting but it does a poor job of providing context. Great on the details, poor on the big picture.
