Kevin Sites has been shut down

Kevin Sites has been shut down.

Distressing. According to Kevin Sites, a CNN cameraman who was blogging from Iraq, he’s been shut down by CNN. I don’t know why — perhaps he was taking too much time from his real job — but it’s a shame. And it shows why it’s important to get independent, reader-funded journalists out there. As I said in my trip update last night, I’m looking to ship out Wednesday and hope to be in-country by next weekend. Any extra, last-minute donations are most welcome.
