3. It's fair to ask the question
The answer, of course, is no, if he means that journos are biased against the war and are making shit up to end it. Are most of them repulsed by the war? Yes. Does this come across in their stories? Yes.

But as a WaPo writer put it earlier, she went to the forces and asked to see all these good news events. And was told, oh, it's too dangerous. If we show you the school, they'll blow it up. If we show you the oil line, they'll blow it up.

Sure, there might be a few feel-good stories there not being covered. But the overwhelming story there is "it's a fucking disaster" and no amount of reports of repainted schools is going to change that.
