Iraq Govt. still functioning

How else, would they find time in the middle of a war to expel CNN journalists. It was like, we can stand the war, but CNN is worse. CNN also “shut down”:http://www.kevinsites.net/2003_03_16_archive.html#200025634 the blog of Kevin Sites. CNN should ” learn something from BBC”:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_depth/2873651.stm here and take advantage of the new media. As “Dan Gillmor”:http://weblog.siliconvalley.com/column/dangillmor/archives/000875.shtml#000875 says, we have various other options now, and don’t have to depend on Amanpour for our news.

The War

All American TV Channels are trying to cover the war the whole night,
without any real information. They go to correspondents all over the
world, and they all tell the same information. Fox has switched to
American Idol. NBC is showing some cool animation of aircrafts taking
of from an air base and launching bunker busters. After many months of
“Target Iraq” programs on various channels, the TV channels would have
been disappointed if the war had not happened.

“Salam Pax”:http://dear_raed.blogspot.com/2003_03_01_dear_raed_archive.html#90955865 (from Baghdad) tells that there was a rumor floating that
Saddam’s brother had asked him to surrender, but in turn he has
imprisoned him

bq. It is being said that Barazan (Saddam?s brother) has suggested to
him that he should do the decent thing and surrender, he got himself
under house arrest in one of the presidential palaces which is
probably going to be one of the first to be hit.

BBC is reporting that Saddam is going to address his people in a while.
