JEFF JARVIS has some excellent suggestions for media organizations who want to do a better job covering Iraq:

If I were in charge of a bureau of reporters in Iraq — are you listening NY Times, Washington Post, FoxNews, NBC, CBS, ABC, Reuters, BBC? — I would assign one reporter, just one, to the rebuilding beat. . . .

I see no reporters covering the rest of life in Iraq. The stories would be easy to get; all you have to do is read a few of the Iraqi weblogs.

I just wonder if there are such organizations? Aside from the Christian Science Monitor (which, as Clayton Cramer notes, is “not generally thought of as a right-wing newspaper” but which seems to be trying harder to do actual reporting) there don’t seem to be many.
