The rejection of the press

As I have mentioned numerous times, why is it that the only way to ever really know what has been happening in Iraq is by watching the History Channel?

Recently the History Channel has been promoting and creating a number of shows, in addition to Shootout that describe specific military engagements of the Iraqi war.

It's not enough that the old media sits and hides in the Green Zone in Baghdad, but they actually refuse to do any investigation whatsoever into the triumphs of the American military in Iraq. I know that it's not news unless American soldiers die, but is it too much for the global media to report what is really going on?

The media has not only rejected their coverage of the war, they have literally refused to cover the positives. Is it any surprise that we no longer watch them?
