Steve Borris posts and comments upon a damning CNN video showing two journalists explaining away good news from Iraq as being “too early to tell.” A four-month-long decline in U.S. casualties was mostly buried by the major dailies, according to CNN. Only ABC News broke with the pack and ran the story as the nightly lead.
It’s interesting that both reporters interviewed by CNN cite a one-month decline as being indicative of nothing. But CNN said the trend has been going on for four months. Who’s misinformed here?
[Update, Nov. 7 – 2007 has become the deadliest year for American soldiers in Iraq. However, the monthly trend has been downward since early summer.]
