Is this news?

The worst example of Iraqi "war coverage" ever from the AP. Let me summarize it for you:

Iraqi soldiers were killed.
A US tanks was "destroyed" (it was actually only on fire - big difference for an Abrams)
A US soldier was killed.
An Iraqi policeman was killed.
Abu Ghraib is the most infamous prison in the world.
Iraqis were tortured there by US soldiers.
More soldiers were killed.
The Iraqi government is infighting.

Is this really what news has come to? An idiot with Google could round up these stories and put them into a more coherent piece of writing than this AP "journalist." Why is it we are so complacent with "news" from Iraq containing only body counts and supposedly destroyed US tanks?
