The High Price of a Free Press

"[M]any of the journalists observable in this war theater are bursting with knee-jerk suspicions and antagonisms for the warriors all around them. A significant number are whiny and appallingly soft." -- Karl Zinsmeister, Domestic Adviser to President Bush on journalists covering the Iraq War.

This quote was not likely covered by CBS's Kimberly Dozier, now hospitalized in Germany, nor the two members of her crew killed by an IED this week.

The Iraq War has become the deadliest conflict in history for journalists.

More than 70 have died getting the story out of the war since it began in March, 2003.

Reuters has a list of those killed.
