Kevin Sites in the Hot Zone From Yahoo! News: “”

“In November 2004, Sites became a flashpoint of controversy for one of the biggest stories of the current Iraqi war, when as an NBC News correspondent he videotaped a U.S. Marine shooting a wounded Iraqi insurgent in a Fallujah mosque. After the video’s airing, Sites was both praised as a journalist willing to reveal the harsh realities of war – and vilified as a traitor to both the Marine unit in which he was embedded and to his country.

Sites’ controversial and award-winning war blog, www.kevinsites.net, was one of the first to combine text, digital images, and audio to provide readers with an intimate, behind-the-lines look at the war in Iraq and how it was being covered.”

CNN finally gave him the boot for this above story and he disappeared from the airwaves.

Kevin is Yahoo’s first dedicated journalist and they’ve given him an incredible website. Kev supplies the incredible stories and pictures.
Keep an eye on this one.
