FOX News Continues Its “Happy News Only” Policy About Iraq On Hannity & Colmes
http://www.newshounds.us/2006/12/15/fox_news_continues_...

Instead of a real discussion about Iraq, “real journalism” FOX News delivered its umpteenth glowing report from Oliver North in Ramadi last night (12/14/06) on Hannity & Colmes. North has been reporting from Ramadi all week without offering perspective or news about the rest of the country. In fact, North’s “special guest” last night, one of our troops in Ramadi, repeatedly emphasized that he couldn’t speak for what is happening elsewhere. What is happening elsewhere – mass abductions and sectarian murder, according to Lieutenant-General Raymond Odierno, who just assumed day-to-day control of U.S. troops in Iraq, was completely overlooked. With the exception of Alan Colmes, who had the opportunity to ask just one question, the Iraq Study Group report was overlooked and, by implication, dismissed by FOX. With video.

In North’s Happy Iraq, everyone gets along and is making good progress as they work together happily. The Governor of Anbar Province (where Ramadi is) is "one of the bravest people" who, North said, was “effusive… in his praise for the courage of the Marines and the police, who are out there living together, training together and fighting against the terrorists. He went on to say that three more schools had been opened since the marines helped his police open new substations out in this provincial capitol."

North then turned to guest Lt. Col. William Jurney and asked one of his leading questions. "Opening police stations is a big deal in this city. It's a big deal because it's such a dangerous place, right?"

Of course Jurney agreed with him.

North went on to remark how well the Sunni police and Shia army work together.

Jurney said, “I can't speak for the rest of the country but I can tell you here in Ramadi, that has not been an issue. You have the Iraqi army supporting the Iraqi police.”
