Sin of Omission: Good news is not news

More on the Sin of Omission theme:
Why is it that when the enemy is active, has a good day, kills many, well, by God, that's essential news and must be covered. But when our forces are active, have a good day, kill many -- because of the cooperation of average Iraqis no less -- well, that can fall by the wayside. (And don't tell me it's a time issue, because this is information easily compressed to a sentence or two of wire copy.)
Via 'But Hey, You Didn't Hear It From Me' which comments on Friday's story on Fox News detailing an attack on a terroist safe house and the lack of coverage by other MSM outlets.
