Iraq: What it's really like?

Wall Street Journal correspondent Farnaz Fassihi wrote a letter to friends telling them what it's really like. And it's not a pretty picture.
"I am house bound.... There has been one too many close calls, including a car bomb so near our house that it blew out all the windows. So now my most pressing concern every day is not to write a kick-ass story but to stay alive and make sure our Iraqi employees stay alive. In Baghdad I am a security personnel first, a reporter second."
Of course, the war's supporters are pointing to this as some sort of media bias. I guess they'd rather point to the danger as a reason to stay.
