Not Reporting the Good News?
Cybercast News reports that data from the Multi-National Force-Iraq shows there were 219 embedded reporters in Iraq when Petraeus told Congress that the surge was working. That was also the month that the surge reached full force.
The number of embedded reporters has since dropped by 74 percent in nine months to just 58 in June.
The largest single-month drop in embeds came in October of 2007 right after the general's testimony.
