The article features Jordan Television (JTV) news anchor Rabah Rousan and the television broadcasting by JTV of the war in Iraq. JTV aired an unedited video featuring corpses of babies and children, and rescuers who vomited from the stench of the still-smouldering bodies. Rousan said that she and her colleagues thought that such images would make Islams realize the violence they had caused. However, JTV news director Mohammed Amin asked for the footage to be edited because television broadcasting had to remain objective.
