President Bush complains that the public is getting a falsely negative impression of the American occupation in Iraq because of the "filter" of the media. It is certainly true that even the most comprehensive and evenhanded reporting from Iraq cannot possibly provide a perfect reflection of events in such complex, chaotic circumstances.
