Good News is No News

Charles Gibson said:

One item from Baghdad today. The news is... that there is no news. The police told us that, to their knowledge, there were no major acts of violence. Attacks are down in Baghdad and today no bombings or roadside explosions were reported.

I don't know. Maybe it's his liberal bias showing through. But I would have figured for sure that a day in Baghdad with no killings, no bombings, no roadside attacks, or any other major acts of violence would be huge news unto itself. After all, that was the entire point of the surge was to bring violence under control. And now, at least for one day, it seems we have. But maybe I'm just a crazy right-wing wacko who thinks reporting on the good things in Iraq is the right thing to do.

But, to Gibson's credit, at least he said SOMETHING about it. ABC can probably take some as well for allowing him the chance. I'm not sure how involved the network people are in stuff like this. His fellow reporters over at NBC and CBS didn't say one word at all.

Well. I guess that's that then.

"Good news" doesn't sell, so most news agencies only report the negative side of life. :(
