Perception Gap in Iraq

The following graph from the Washington Post by Jim Hoaglund makes a very good point. The reality is that the Whitewash House, by faking the return of soveriegnty to Iraq, are managing to distance themselves from the ugly realities of what is happening. There has been no abatement in the violence either on the locals or on the coalition forces. The sad part is that the U.S. media are allowing then to get away with it. Whores.

Perception Gap in Iraq ( "To the relief of the White House, the American public and media seem to be slowly trying to tune out Iraq's continuing violence. Accounts of all but spectacular assaults slide deeper into network news broadcasts and the inside pages of newspapers as the summer and the U.S. presidential campaign progress. "
