Compare excellent blog report at Washblog to 'traditional' media reports Citizens' Hearing tribunal Tacoma, WA

Washblog reporting compared to traditional media reporting on the tribunal this weekend putting Iraq war on trial. Compare it for yourself and I think you 'll agree that the first reports at Washblog far exceeded the reporting that came from 'traditional media'. Reporter account at Washblog are more informative and less opined - actual factual reporting.

An example of excellent Courageous Citizen Reporters at work at the

Thank you, Lietta! Bloggers and other alternative media are picking up where traditional media is failing. And I think the alternative media pressure may help raise the level of accountability across the board.
