Go Home To Fox, Glenn

Fox and Beck. A better fit.

Here's Glenn Beck on the fourth anniversary of the Iraq invasion:

BECK: Today marks the fourth anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq. Everybody else on television tonight, I can guarantee you, flip around, they`re giving you nothing but bad news. We thought we would try something different. We thought we`d give you the truth.

There are good things happening in Iraq, as well, and our troops are doing some incredibly heroic things under horrifying conditions. And so tonight, we begin our exclusive series that will take you inside the world of "Combat Search and Rescue." These are special operations men and women who go behind enemy lines -- under fire -- to save American lives.
Here's Neil Cavuto from Fox:

Today on his Fox News show, host Neil Cavuto did a segment on “something you are not hearing” — how many Iraqis are “thanking” the United States for “liberating” Iraq...
Comrades in denial, Fox and Beck.

It's good times in Iraq folks, if you believe in their warped "truth". And obviously, there's no room for more than 3,000 U.S. soldiers and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi dead in that "truth". What's more:

More than six in 10 Iraqis now say that their lives are going badly -- double the percentage who said so in late 2005 -- and about half say that increasing U.S. forces in the country will make the security situation worse, according to a poll of more than 2,200 Iraqis conducted for ABC News and other media organizations.

The survey, released Monday, shows that Iraqis' assessments of the quality of their lives and the future of the country have plunged in comparison with similar polling done in November 2005 and February 2004.
And this:

The poll of 2,212 people from across Iraq suggests an increasing pessimism and feeling of insecurity since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.

Much pessimism appears to stem from the fact that life is not noticeably improving for many people with rising dissatisfaction about the availability of jobs, clean water, electricity and the freedom to choose where to live without persecution.
