"Media coverage of the murders has been out of proporation (sic), denying airtime to much more important events."
This is Martin Bell, writing from Basra in the Guardian's Comment is Free blog.
Not only do I agree with him, his piece is quite good. But I cannot believe I am writing this, except that it says little about Basra and the Iraq war that you haven't already read on this blog.
But the Guardianistas hate it ... some of the comments are hilarious.
