real-time war reporting via blog


So I'm probably the last to know that CNN war correspondent Kevin Sites has a blog. But just in case, I'm mentioning it anyway.

Funny how the "audblog" post that he called in from the Iran/Kurdistan border strikes me as so much more compelling than a comparable report on CNN itself would be.

The personal nature of blogging, I think, fundamentally changes our relationship to the content. It's all about voice, of course. In his blog, it feels like Kevin is talking to me. I don't feel that way about mass media journalism.


Thanks for the link, Elizabeth! You're far from the last to discover this wonderful blog; thanks to you I've now blogrolled Kevin Sites and will be keeping up with his postings, hoping he remains okay.

Kevin's site is great. I like your site a lot too...added to my bookmarks!
