Michael Yon Honored by the NYTimes


I guess it's that time of the year again, for the broken down clock at the NYTimes:
Published: January 21, 2008

Michael Yon was not a journalist, and he wasn’t sure what a blogger was. He had been in uniform but not in combat, and he wanted to keep it that way. He went to Iraq thinking he would stay for a month, and maybe find a way to write about the war after he got home.

Instead, he has spent most of the last three years in Iraq, writing prolifically and graphically, and racking up more time embedded with combat units than any other journalist, according to the United States military.

Hat tip: Gateway Pundit
(also, a collection of some of the latest positive news out of Iraq)

In their business section, no less! What's up with that? "Where can we put this that people are least likely to look?" ??

Anyway, fairly good article. As usual, 50% opinion content.

I heard about this today Word,

Michael Yon has been quite the journalist since he has been in Iraq. He didnt start out to be one, but he turned into one.

He has done some of the best reporting in Iraq.

He tells the truth on his blog and doesnt hide anything!

I Love Michael Yon, he's terrific!!
