I get stressed enough as it is blogging for BOTN in my air conditioned office in DC, so I can't even imagine what it would be like to blog from the streets of Baghdad. Back in February we spoke with American citizen journalist Michael Yon about his dispatches from the war. He has spent most of the last three years reporting from Iraq, but now he's back in the States to talk about his new book, Moment of Truth in Iraq. In it, he gives us a deeper look at his coverage of the battlefield, and what it's like to blog in one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists. You can read his online magazine here. He'll join us today in the Knight studio at the Newseum, so if you have any questions for him, let us know.
