Do we have the ability to follow two wars at once?
The blog Baghdad Observer suggests not:
The once-huge international press corps here has shrunken significantly, with many verteran war correspondents decamped to Afghanistan. Major U.S. TV networks have pulled out, or are in the process of doing so. Other news organizations are hanging on until after the elections, which have been delayed from January to at least late February or March. (McClatchy, I am proud to say, plans to maintain a presence in Baghdad).
The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism tracks the attention news organizations give to stories. Its latest has Iraq nowhere in sight.
The last time Iraq was in the top five stories in a given week was at the end of June.
