Chi Trib has page one story 7/19 about Iraq rebels gaining force, expanding power, citing (regretfully, to be sure) a U.S. colonel a year ago talking about Saddam's henchmen's last gasp. Gotcha!
This is part of the drumbeat of negativism appearing not in its editorials but in its so-called news coverage.
Meanwhile, you can easily find reports from the ground on the web that tell you we are winning. Who's right? I have my opinion, but so what? Point is, why is Chi Trib so consarned one-sided in its so-called news reporting? It's getting ridiculous. Really.
