TomDispatch - Tomdispatch Interview: Engelhardt, The Imperial Press and Me

Don't miss this interview of Tom Englehart. A sample: "Here are a couple of tidbits I picked up deep in the Times recently.

There was an interesting front-page piece by Sabrina Tavernisi, 'As Death Stalks Iraq: Middle Class Exodus Begins.' After the jump, pretty deep inside, there's this line: 'In all, 312 trash workers have been killed in Baghdad in the past six months.' There it is: basic, good reporting that no one's going to notice or pick-up on. And yet it probably tells you just about everything you need to know about life in Baghdad today. Forget the security forces, forget top officials. Three hundred and twelve garbage men slaughtered. Holy Toledo!"
