now the media wants an investigation

we hate to be so cynical about things, but it took one of the media's own getting killed by u.s. troops for a widespread calling for an investigation. forbes.com is reporting:

the u.s.-based committee to protect journalists (cpj) called for a full investigation into the killing of award-winning reuters cameraman mazen dana, who was shot dead by u.s. troops in iraq on sunday.

soldiers on an american tank shot at dana, 43, while he filmed outside abu ghraib prison in western baghdad which had earlier come under a mortar attack, witnesses said.

we are sorry for mr. dana's family, and we mourn anyone killed in this illegal war.

but why hasn't the press been more of a watchdog about it till now?
