Best War Coverage

My nomination, thus far, goes to the North County Times, a paper outside of San Diego. With a heavy military presence in their community, they've sent some first-rate photogs and reporters as embeds. Their work out of Fallujah is breathtaking -- far better than AP, Reuters, NYT, etc. All this from a paper I never heard of till now. We first started noticing their photos because the AP was picking them up and running them on the wire. They literally jump out off the screen at you, compared to the pointless AP s--t. I see they've come to the attention of Lt. Smash (hat tip) and others, too.

Check out their Web site, and especially take time to look through the photo journals on the left.
