Media Drops Ball on Afghanistan Say Scarborough, Haas

Is the media doing a terrible job on covering the war in Afghanistan? Richard Haas says yes.

The president of the Council on Foreign Relations and Joe Scarborough ripped a "compliant press" on Morning Joe today for failing to ask the tough questions about Pres. Obama's prosecution of the war in Afghanistan. Scarborough suggested a theory as to why the press is punting: "it goes against a decade-long narrative that George Bush chose the wrong war and that Afghanistan was the right war." True, no doubt.
