Proving again that we are a nation of lamentably limited attention spans, a new study by the Pew Research Center
finds minimal interest by both the press and its readers in that bloody
little matter of the war in Afghanistan. It found that just 4% of news
coverage focused on the war, which came in behind the economy, the
recent tax deal and, sometimes, Elizabeth Edwards' death in both media and reader
interest. Disturbing. More.
