How Good the Journalism of the 'Embeds'? NPR's Robert Siegel explores the much-ballyhooed decision to include hundreds of reporters with troops in Iraq.

We hear the thoughts of Deputy Defense Secretary Brian Whitman, Washington Post reporter Rick Atkinson, Harvard scholar Marvin Kalb, NPR's John Burnett and writer Eric Alterman.
