I wrote an article for Poynter Online this week, which you can check out here. The story lists findings from a study that Poynter commissioned to find out more about Americans’ views on the Iraq war coverage. Many of those surveyed (47 percent) classified the coverage as “poor.” Interestingly enough, people said they wanted to know more about the Iraqi government and people than they did about how the war is affecting local communities here in the U.S. How do you think the war coverage has been? What would you like to see more of?
