John Roberts Tells Kurtz: Iraq Worse Than Media Shows

NEW YORK CNN's John Roberts, recently returned from a month-long visit to Iraq, was interviewed by The Washington Post's Howard Kurtz for his CNN "Reliable Sources" program on Sunday. Much of the talk concerned media treatment of the war, starting with complaints by U.S. soldiers, and then the overall media coverage.Roberts revealed that despite some charges to the contrary, military personnel did not have a problem with the coverage and, in fact, the situation on the ground is an "absolute mess," worse than the media has shown. "The amount of death that's on the streets of Baghdad for U.S. forces and for the Iraqi people is at an astronomical level," he said. "So, to some degree, what we're seeing is sanitized."..........

Several times during my years in the peace time army I came across examples of the military letting out information in a way that while was true had been spun to make a point or reduce bad effects. The most recent was that right before I retired from the Guard I talked with a recruiter that was sweating bullets concerning how the bottom had fallen out of his job. He could get no one who met the standards to even consider enlisting. His bosses had told him that if asked recruiting was slower than usual, "due to the good economy", but going fine. This, you can guess, was to not let out that the military had become untouchable to anyone who despite all that was going on might still have some idea to join.
