Maybe if you are a filthy Wahhabi Al-Qaeda sympathizer. I guess when the news isn't bad, you just make the story about yourself and how bad you have it. This from our friends from Al-Reuters;
WASHINGTON, Nov 28 (Reuters) - Nearly 90 percent of U.S. journalists in Iraq say much of Baghdad is still too dangerous to visit, despite a recent drop in violence attributed to the build-up of U.S. forces, a poll released on Wednesday said. The survey by the Washington-based Pew Research Center showed that many U.S. journalists believe coverage has painted too rosy a picture of the conflict.
I am going to guess that by "poll" they mean, a show of hands of journalists sitting in the Sheraton Hotel bar in the Green Zone.
The Pew people though, managed to pimp slap these cowards for well, the cowards they are.
A separate Pew poll released on Tuesday showed that 48 percent of Americans believe the U.S. military effort in Iraq is going very or fairly well, up from 34 percent in June, amid signs of declining Iraqi civilian casualties and progress against Islamist militants such as al Qaeda in Iraq.
So, average Americans believe things are going better, but reporters believe they are all about to be rounded up and beheaded. Hmmm. No bias there....
Al-Reuters was at least truthful about who faces the actual danger in reporting the stories they submit from Iraq.
Much of the danger for journalists is faced by local Iraqis, who often do most of the reporting outside Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone, the data showed.
As part of a sampling I took, let's just see what has been going on lately, as reported by someone who has not been swilling booze and chasing tail while sending out stringers to get you a story about anything that will put the US in a bad light.
I wonder what Mike Yon, The B5 embeds, and the PAO's of MNF-I think about how dangerous it is?
