From this week's Time Magazine:
Baghdad - Networks Scale Back in Iraq
AS violence increases in Afghanistan, not only are troops being redirected there, but so are journalists - at the expense of news coverage in Iraq. A New York Times report noted that the three major U.S. networks - ABC, CBS and NBC - have quietly stopped sending full-time correspondents to Iraq despite the fact that about 130,000 U.S. service members are still there. While the networks declined to discuss specific staffing changes, representatives said the switch reflects a change in the nature of the Iraq mission from pacification to reconstruction.
Reconstruction = good news = no news.
Tell that to the family members and friends who still loved ones deployed to Iraq.
