Iraq war coverage will change if GOP suffers a big defeat

National Journal
The war is a debacle, says William Powers, but “if you follow the daily coverage, you’ll see media outlets spending a lot of time tempering the basic reality of Iraq, with pulled punches, qualifiers, and other moves that make the fiasco seem a lot less fiasco-like.” If President Bush suffers a major political setback in November, “the media will feel freed up to tear into this war as they have never done before.”
