It is only news if it makes Democrats look good

AP reports
The war has nearly vanished from TV screens over the past few months, ....

"It's no big secret that this is a war that everyone has grown tired of," said CNN correspondent Arwa Damon, ....

So when exactly did the media get "tired" of the war:
It's possible to pinpoint the exact week that the switch turned off. The war averaged 30 minutes per week of coverage last year on the three network evening newscasts up until Gen. David Petraeus, commander of the U.S. forces, testified in September about the surge's progress, according to news consultant Andrew Tyndall. In the last 15 weeks of the year, the broadcasts collectively spent four minutes per week on the war.
Yes, CNN and the MSM got "tired" of the story exactly at the time that it became hard to deny that things in Iraq were going well.
