Accuracy at home and abroad

Mark Steyn makes an interesting point in this column, while noting the fact that the MSM reporting on Hurricane Katrina was mostly utter fantasy:

Think about that: Hurricane week was in large part a week of drivel, mostly the bizarre fantasies of New Orleans' incompetent police chief but amplified hugely by a gullible media. Given everything we now know they got wrong in Louisiana, where they speak the language, how likely is it that the great blundering herd are getting it any more accurate in Iraq?

Not very, apparently.
