3% of News Covers War, after 5 Years
"Last week marked the fifth anniversary of the war in Iraq, but you might not have seen much about it on TV. Just 3% of the news in February was dedicated to the war and fewer than one in three Americans know how many American troops have died in Iraq. Believe it or not, a study just released by the Pew Research Center shows that press coverage of the war is at the lowest point since the war began. Please take a minute now to sign an open letter to the media and demand that major networks increase their coverage of the Iraq war." - from Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.
