I’ve been subscribing to the Chicago Tribune’s news blog, the Swamp, for a few months now. It’s often an interesting read because it does pretty good analysis of the stories behind the news, including what it’s like to be a reporter in an overseas trip. Here’s a dispatch from the G-8 summit with some cool photos of where the press corps are stationed.

One eyebrow-raising event is captured here – a discussion between Bush and Blair where we’re not sure if they knew the microphone was live. The chat is a bit halting but it’s quite a revealing view into the back and forth.
