"With all the coverage of the war, what we're seeing is one particular commentator or reporter's slice of the war. We're not seeing the whole war.
Keep that in mind ... hope you aren't relying on just one news source for the war. There is a huge amount of information on radio, TV, newspapers, and of course the web (most of it on the web). Use them all.
And you still won't have a complete picture, but you'll be much better informed if you do more than just camp out on CNN."
