    Why aren't the reporters flooding into Iraq to show us first hand the surge success?
    You think they would all be there standing in the recently safe streets with camera crews in tow showing off McCains success. Wouldn't you? Why isn't Fox news and Geraldo over there with his little pistol doing man in the street interviews?

    Why the lack of coverage if everything is going so swimmingly.

    I will tell you why. The pictures would not reflect what we are being told to believe. That is why.

    Isn't that the truth

    Reporters Flee Iraq As Casualties Plummet
    By Craig Bannister (Bio | Archive)

    The number of embedded reporters in Iraq has plummeted 74 percent over the past nine months, from 219 in September 2007 to a low of 58 in June, as U.S. troop casualties have plunged, according to Department Of Defense data analysis by CNSNews.com Staff Writer Kevin Mooney. U.S. casualties were down 84 percent in May and 75 percent in June from year-ago numbers, for example.

    Because the media is only interested in military failures.
