ABSTRACT
The article compares the working conditions of war correspondents before and during the Iraq War in 2003. Covering wars can be enjoyable as there were compensations that made war reporting bearable. Soldiers' camaraderie was reflected in the close relationships among correspondents. Journalists had reasonable safety, extraordinary access, exotic food, good companionship and a great story. However, these scenarios were not present in Iraq where more journalists had been killed.
