Just finished reading this book by the NPR correspondent Anne Garrels....it's good.
My first skeptical thoughts were.....NPR.....the fact that the author's from CT......leftist liberal reporter??
I was pleasantly proven wrong, I'm not saying she's a neo-con or anything but this chick seemed fair and level-headed.
A few interesting chapters revolved around the following;
---You guys remember those "human shield" people...well she's got some good insight on those fools...err... I mean folks
---All of the civilians killed in the"carpet bombing shock & awe" mission...she pretty much sets that shit straight...(no spoilers here)
---It's amazing how these "under the radar" reporters feel about talking heads like Geraldo, Rather, Amanpour...etc
This book gives you an idea of the inner-workings of how Iraq was before and during the war.
Just thought I'd toss this to you guys that need something good to read.
On average, I really like NPR. They tend to be quite balanced, in my opinion, and bring good depth and discusison to topics (that is often sorely lacking in 24/7 newschannels)
We're not ALL douchebags up here.
Yeah, some of you are the douche
Sorry man...no offense...I was merely refering to your states "Blueness"
