So one of the current right-wing mantras is that the media is ignoring all the good news that’s supposedly happening in Iraq. You know what’s funny to me about that? The media doesn’t even cover good news in this country. Watch local news or look on the front page of any newspaper and what do you see? Fires, car crashes, death, natural disasters… fear, fear, FEAR! I mean, we’re not losing 30 people a day to random suicide bombings in this country, and still there’s nothing in the news but doom and gloom. “If it bleeds, it leads” is the American Way of Journalism. Why is that going to be any different with Iraq?
