What would Batman do?

Batman is arguably the greatest superhero ever conceived. He doesn't have to fly around or use laser vision to get the job done. With his genius brain and his deadly martial arts skills, Batman is a force to be reckoned with. It might sound like I have a man-crush on him (okay, you got me), but he's my favorite superhero for a good reason.
Essentially, Batman is someone who can do anything he puts his mind to, and if we took a page out of his book, we could do the same. Granted, he's only a work of fiction. He's designed to triumph over evil no matter the situation, but there are still morals to be found, just like in any story. If we look beyond the pure entertainment value, it's possible to find many life lessons within the Batman lore.

This week, I heard a lecture from a journalist who traveled to Iraq as an "embedded journalist." Basically, that means that he traveled with a military unit as he wrote and reported the news.
This has been a fairly common practice since before my time, but there are still journalists who go out on their own to get the story.
A lot of people defend embedded journalism by saying that Iraq, Afghanistan, and other war zones don't offer the safety for a journalist to move freely. I understand and agree; however, journalism is supposed to be objective.
