The link I found was on foxnews.com. It was the feature story of the day, and it is a link to a YouTube video of a landmine exploding in Iraq with American soldiers driving on a highway.


Fox directly linked to the YouTube video with the only disclaimer saying "WARNING: Graphic language."

This brings up an interesting debate of how to handle YouTube videos, which are hardly censored and often times have explicit language.

In this case, I would have linked it as well, with the same disclaimer - I think FOX made the right move because it is an unbelievable, eye-popping video that really does show what American soldiers have to deal with every day during the war.

It is a YouTube video that is informative, even in spite of its graphic nature.
