FOR REPORTERS, IRAQ WAR DEADLIEST IN HISTORY

Editor & Publisher has the story:
The deaths of two CBS journalists on Monday means the Iraq conflict is now the deadliest war for reporters in this century.

Since 2003, 71 journalists have been killed in Iraq, more than the 63 killed in Vietnam, 17 killed in Korea -- and now the 69 killed in World War II, according to Freedom Forum.

The Iraq numbers do not include the 26 members of media support staff who have also died, as counted by the Committee to Protect Journalists.
Nor do they include the 42 journailsts kidnapped since the war began.

Damned media. Why can't they report the good news in Iraq?

"now the deadliest war for reporters in this century"

None of the other wars listed took place during this century. More accurately: "In the last hundred years."
