The Media and Iraq

A facinating read by a commander in Iraq currently involved in security operations in Iraq.

I take it with a grain of salt, as with anything at World Tribune, but if it's 50% accurate, it shows the major problem with our media reporting in general, and it has to do with what brings the ratings. It is scary that we can be so easily manipulated.

Rest assured, there are those who know that the media is reporting 99% of the bad things which take up 1% of the story and 1% of the good things that remain.

These elections are key. When they go off without major issues, the entire media will be scrambling to find out why they were a failure and attempt to drive that point home (very much like this "election fraud" in Ohio that wasn't). It will be interesting to observe.
