This report says that it is possible that Sean Penn will go to Iraq and write articles for a San Francisco paper. Oh, this will be helpful, won’t it? Penn’s reporting will help make the coverage more balanced, or thoughtful? I don’t think so. But sending Robert Alt would be helpful, so the Ashbrook Center is going to send him, and not for a few days. He will go to Iraq in February and stay for many months. He will write dispatches and articles for us, as well as the national press. I’ll keep you informed of this over the next many weeks, but you should know that we are going to do this. And, you should know that we need your help. Although we have raised some money, we need more. If you are interested in helping and finding out more about the project send us an e-mail or call us (talk to me or Eric Green) at: 419-289-5411.
