Discrimination in Journalism...

Post by weemadando » 2003-04-05 12:04am

A quote from one of the British press liason officers to a French journalist asking when he and other European journalists will be allowed to take a tour of southern Iraq like the Brit and American journalists have:

"Your journalists will have the same amount of access as you have troops on the ground."

There have also been reports of a general censoring by omission by American and British forces of the journalists from nations not part of the "coalition".

Okay, I locked this thread since a few people had already responded to it. Use the other one, from now on, though.
