MICHAEL YON posts a lengthy essay, with photos, from Iraq.

He emails: “There are two types of media sources covering this war: the ones who are here, and those who are not. The media is Missing In Action, and reporting from afar. Yesterday, for instance, major media reported on an attack in a small village north of Mosul. None of those sources actually visited the village. I did.”

His work would be in The New Yorker, if there were any justice.

UPDATE: Plus, a photo essay from Bill Ardolino, one of those journalists who reports from Iraq.
