Journalists in Iraq: from ‘embeds’ to targets By Ann Cooper (This article appeared in The Seattle Times on February 9, 2004)
The Pentagon was pleased with the "embed" coverage, but openly irritated that hundreds of other journalists reported on the war "unilaterally," that is, without traveling with the troops. Now, several months after the end of active war and the embed program, the press corps covering Iraq is virtually all unilateral, residual good will from the embed program is fading, and a troubling pattern has emerged of U.S. troops harassing journalists covering the post-war violence.
Who is Ann Cooper?
Ann Cooper is the executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, a New York-based nonprofit organization promoting press freedom worldwide. She is a former correspondent for National Public Radio who covered the former Soviet Union and Africa.
Cooper's bio may color her reporting on this subject and tends to support Eason Jordan's accusations of the US Military. If he said what he is alleged to have said, then he owes it to all of us to back up his statements with evidence. Why hasn't made any comments on the Jordan story?
The Committee to Protect Journalists is an independent, nonprofit organization founded in 1981. We promote press freedom worldwide by defending the right of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.
