MSM meets the Iraqi bloggers

Regular readers know that I have been a champion of Iraqi bloggers for some time. For the first time in history, thanks to the internet, we're able to get real-time, first-person accounts from different points of view, by eyewitnesses who are actually in country. Like many, I was skeptical of Iraqi bloggers when I first began reading them. I mean, how the hell do we know who these people are, anyway? After a time, however, I noticed how some of them would regularly scoop the MSM, and break stories sometimes days before the major newspapers. At this point, there are several of them whom I consider to be more reliable than our own corporate media.

Today's Wall Street Journal has a piece on Iraqi bloggers, which I'd encourage everyone to read. I also have links to some of my favorite Iraq blogs on this site.
