Last week the media seized upon several issues in Iraq, Afghanistan and the White House that supposedly had Bush “on a roll.” But after a subsequent negative turns of events, Media Matters asks whether the media will give the same amount of attention to Bush’s roll in the opposite direction….

Media Matters:

Last week, the media seized on a “spate of good news” supposedly providing the White House a surge of momentum. In recent days, there have been negative turns of events in many of the areas that had been the focus of the media’s enthusiasm, including the violence in Iraq and Afghanistan and the trial of a former White House official. Will the media give the same attention to this apparent string of bad news as they devoted to last week’s “good news”?
