The following article is an exploration and critique of the media-military relationship during times of war. War correspondence has always required a difficult balance of censorship and free press, but with advances in technology and the use of embedded reporters, the problem has grown quite complex. This article argues that in addition to the classic problems of objectivity in war correspondence, the use of embedded reporters has also led to an unprecedented media-military collaboration.

A collaborative effort by both the government and the so-called "free press" allows for a pro-war propaganda machine disguised as an objective eyewitness account of the war effort in Iraq. The problems exposed in this article have greater implications for the media and government relationship at large and open doors for further research and exploration of war correspondence in general.
