In the 1991 Gulf War, the American public was fed an a homogenized version of reality. The news consisted of the same sound bites, presidential declarations, Pentagon briefings, etc. -- essentially identical information no matter what the media source.
In the first 24 hours of the latest Gulf War, the same situation prevailed for the vast majority of Americans. This time around, however, a minority -- but a growing one -- had learned a lesson from the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks. They had a robust online alternative. The World Wide Web, e-mail lists and other online sources offered content with context and nuance.
Maybe you didn't have time at the start of this war to check out the alternatives. In coming weeks and months, please make the time.
