Iraq Historical Elections

There is a site in Iraq called Friends of Democracy. They have several common people in almost each province reporting on the upcoming elections, the arts, attitudes, and they do interviews. They also report on the news they can fit in one day's work.

They may not be professional journalists, but what is a pro? The New York Times? HA! They say bloggers are not journalists! I say they are wrong. I believe it is the common man who can get and give a more accurate perspective. Blackfive has an article on this site.

Hat tip to Blackfive.
