JUST WHAT WE'VE COME TO EXPECT FROM THE AMERICAN PRESS
There was some good news about Iraq Tuesday, which is unusual. Of course, there was bad news, too, which is not.
I've spent the better part of 13 months culling the good news from Iraq...and I'm just one guy with an internet connection. Too bad the Detroit Free Press doesn't have my endless resources so they can find the good news too.

Not to stand up for the newspaper but that article did come out of the opinions section of the newspaper.

Indeed...it comes from the EDITORIAL page and is unattributed - meaning this reflects the position of the DFP's editors.

And that is precisely my point. The editors have just told us their predilection is that good news from Iraq is an anomaly.

I contend that is not the case. Rather, it is the REPORTING of good news from Iraq that is the true anomaly.
