Scribblers pulling out of Iraq

The mainstream press is done with Iraq.
" “The war has gone on longer than a lot of news organizations’ ability or appetite to cover it,” said Jane Arraf, a former Baghdad bureau chief for CNN who has remained in Iraq as a contract reporter for The Christian Science Monitor."
Wouldn't have anything to do with the fact there's no more bad news to report because we've won, would it? Hmm...

Afghanistan is where they're all heading next, of course. Plenty of tales to spin of woe and U.S. barbarism there yet.

Then again, with a new president in charge -- one for whom, remember, Chris Matthews says it's the press' duty to help make successful -- we might get some good news at last.
