Things Going Well In Iraq (No News Is Good News)

Dafydd over at Big Lizards has a great summary of a few stories out of Iraq from the past couple of days. Basically, if the MSM is quiet on Iraq, thats a good thing. When things are going well, they get fussy and stop playing:

The training of Iraqi security forces, both the New Iraqi Army and the Iraqi police, seems to have fallen off the front pages of the antique media. There is a good reason for this: it's going very well.

"If it bleeds, it leads;" but that means that if it's good news, newspapers, magazines, and broadcast news just aren't interested. Don Henley was right: it's "give us dirty laundry!"
