Iraq War? Oh yeah...Today's NY Times, on the trickle of news from Iraq:
According to the Project for Excellence in Journalism’s News Coverage Index, coverage of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has slipped to 3 percent of all American print and broadcast news as of last week, falling from 25 percent as recently as last September.If there was a war, and nobody reported it, would people still get killed?
Can a nation that forgets to pay attention to the wars it is presently fighting do justice to the memory of those who died in the past?
