Media Research Center looked at the content and tone of the 1,388 Iraq stories carried on the main evening news broadcasts of ABC, CBS and NBC during the period January 1 through September 30, concluding:
Network coverage has been overwhelmingly pessimistic.

■ News about the war has grown increasingly negative.

■ Terrorist attacks are the centerpiece of TV’s war news.

■ Even coverage of the Iraqi political process has been negative.

■ Few stories focused on the heroism or generous actions of American soldiers.

■ It’s not as if there was no “good news” to report.
