Public, media losing sight of Iraq, study finds

Twenty-eight percent of the public is aware that nearly 4,000 U.S. personnel have died in Iraq over the past five years, while nearly half thinks the death tally is 3,000 or fewer and 23 percent think it is higher, according to an opinion survey released yesterday. The survey, by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press, found that public awareness of developments in the Iraq war has dropped precipitously since last summer, as the news media have paid less attention to the conflict.
Liberal media? Or pawns of the war machine.

Who to blame? The media - for putting on as the front story Britney's lastest escapade? Or the public - for allowing this to happen?

Try both.
