 The Hindu : The other side of news
The widespread criticism of the U.S. media during the invasion of Iraq obscured the work done by alternative media in that country to provide citizens with the other side of the story.
During the period leading up to the invasion of Iraq "more than half the people in the country were opposed to the war even if half the media were for it," she points out.
An outspoken critic of mainstream or corporate media, Goodman was among those who testified at the recent public hearings on the further deregulation of the media, organised by dissenting members of the Federal Communications Commission.

 STATS.org - How the Media Covered The Lancet’s Iraqi Casualty Study
A new study has generated heavy news coverage with its finding that over 650,000 Iraqis have died as a direct or indirect result of the March 2003 US-led invasion.
This is a glaring error, because it vastly increases the number of the war’s innocent victims, making the conflict seemed even more terrible than it already is. Moreover, the researchers were quite clear about having counted all deaths rather than civilian deaths.
But foreign media didn’t need the New York Times to confuse the total death toll with the civilian death count.

 Media Coverage
In the ongoing Iraq conflict, there is a growing realization among mainstream newsmen that they have failed the American public, but the U.S. military is happy with the way it controlled information through its program of embedding journalists with soldiers.
In that role, he was responsible for the media “boot camp” at Quantico, Va. where 700 journalists were coached for the embedded process.
The debate about the U.S. media’s failure to confront the Bush administration’s case for going to war and the inadequacy of the overall coverage of the conflict have also found their way into ongoing exchanges in some parts of the media, including American Free Press.

 THE GLOBAL BEAT-RESOURCES FOR THE GLOBAL JOURNALIST
Much of the media is marking the third anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Iraq with questions about whether the war was worth it; reflections on the many failures the U.S. has confronted and the perils facing efforts to establish a new government of national unity.
Iraq currently has no government because electoral rules bequeathed by the U.S. and the largely ethnic- and sectarian basis on which Iraqis have voted in two elections has thus far precluded the creation of one.
To mark the third anniversary of the Iraq war, Orville Schell went to Baghdad to chronicle the state of media coverage of the conflict, and the lives of the journalists tasked with getting the story in the face of mounting obstacles.

Instead, Iraq has reverted to its three constituent components: a pro-western Kurdistan, an Iran-dominated Shiite theocracy in the south, and a chaotic Sunni Arab region in the center.
Galbraith argues that because the new Iraq was never a voluntary creation of its people--but rather held together by force--America’s ongoing attempt to preserve a unified nation is guaranteed to fail, especially since it’s divided into three different entities.
One of the administration's intentions in invading Iraq was to undermine Iran, but instead, the Iraqi occupation has given Tehran one of its greatest strategic triumphs in the last four centuries.

 Iraq Invasion Radicalized Saudi Fighters: Report
"Analysts and government officials in the U.S. and Iraq have overstated the size of the foreign element in the Iraqi insurgency, especially that of the Saudi contingent," it said.
"The vast majority of Saudi militants who entered Iraq were not terrorist sympathizers before the war, and were radicalized almost exclusively by the coalition invasion," the study said.
But those numbers may be inflated because Saudi militants receive disproportionate attention, partly because of greater media coverage and partly because they are prized volunteers who bring funds with them up to $15,000, CSIS said.
