How reporters rationalize their bias

On Sunday on Howard Kurtz's "Reliable Sources" (CNN), Robin Wright of the Washington Post and Barbara Starr of CNN explain that good news from Iraq should not be reported because one must be "skeptical" an recognize it might not represent a "trend" or it might be inaccurate. However, bad news should "certainly" be reported, apparently without asking about whether it is accurate or represents a "trend." See the transcript.
