The news is, like, totally good from Baghdad, according to a comprehensive debriefing of print and T.V. reporters who've worked in Iraq in the New York Observer. For one thing, they report that it's really "like more than 500 Iraqis being killed violently every month rather than 2,000"! With the war "waning" in this fashion, CBS News keeps a full-time Baghdad producer-chief there—but sees no need for a full-time correspondent. And yet some reporters are finding that when they come back to the U.S., they're peppered with questions that would be easily answered if anyone read their stories. Even Courtney Kealy of Fox News gets it: "People say to me, what's the real story in Iraq? I say, read the books that have come out and won Pulitzers. Look at my friends' articles. Look at the stories I've done. They're not looking, and they're not reading; they don't want to."
