We need a survey

Here's what I'd like to know: do people think that the media reporting on Iran is better or worse without foreign correspondents?

I think it's better; the information is not constrained by the personal agendas of the correspondents and the limited number of people whom they cite. It's also a bit comical: CNN in particular constantly emphasizing that it can't guarantee the accuracy of the reports coming in - wouldn't it be nice if they'd admit that the same problem applies to their own reporting?
