The Washington Post's media critic scolded CNN's John King this morning about not enough coverage of events in Iraq.
John King agreed and said some are now calling the war in Iraq, the forgotten war.
We have a 130,000 troops in Iraq.
The coverage Michael Jackson's death underscores a trend that started in late 2007 when it was apparent that the surge was making a difference. Celebrity news trumps war every time these days. Only bombings and IEDs make the news these days.
