The media aren't telling the whole story about Iraq, U.S. Rep. Jim Ryun says.

"Those of us who've been over there -- we see that the hospitals are open, the universities are open, schools are open and the electricity is on in Baghdad," the Kansas Republican told a Lawrence Chamber of Commerce forum Tuesday at the Hereford House restaurant, 4931 W. Sixth St.

"We see all these good things going on," he said. "But when we asked why the story wasn't getting back to the American people, we were told that when the correspondents call their editors, all the editors are interested in are body counts."
