Media Ignores a Military Victory-Truth!

News of a Military Victory in Iraq and the US Media Ignored it-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

An editorial from the Investor’s Business Daily citing that the US media is failing to report on the recent success of the surge in Iraq where the London Sunday Times is reporting it as “one of the most spectacular victories of the war on terror”.

The Truth:

Iraqi and US 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment defeated Al-Qaeda fighters held up in a defiant “last stand” in the northern city of Mosul.

At the time of our investigation, US media reports of this were hard to find but we did manage to find a report of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki‘s announcement on the Fox News site.  For the most part, it appears the mainstream media missed this one.
