Here are a couple quick reasons why to consider thinking twice:
The U.S. military in Iraq has imprisoned an Associated Press photographer for five months, accusing him of being a security threat but never filing charges or permitting a public hearing…. One of Hussein’s photos was part of a package of 20 photographs that won a Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography last year. His contribution was an image of four insurgents in Fallujah firing a mortar and small arms during the U.S.-led offensive in the city in November 2004.
106 journalists and media assistants killed since the start of fighting in Iraq in March 2003, two still missing.
The moral of the story — don’t count on anyone having your back — even if you win a Pulitzer! (there are, of course, some exceptions).
