Students at Swarthmore College are using Skype, a Web site and MP3 audio to provide original journalism about Iraq. Interesting journalism. Journalism with some depth to it. Their Web site is called War News Radio. Apparently NPR covered the story a year ago — must have been a day I didn’t listen.

I found War News Radio because Juan Antonio Giner loves — just LOVES — IraqSlogger. I’m not sure what I think about a one-issue news site, but in this case, it’s a hugely important issue, so it seems worthwhile. Giner has a lot to say about it.
