"Good news is no news"

Charles Krauthhammer is making a very good point here, addressing something I dare to consider the tabloid-type behavior of the media. Almost daily you read information, already brought further by the national media everywhere, about attacks, conflicts, details about the death toll, or "brave" journalists throwing shoes. But, when you have something like happened in Iraq recently - free elections, when - another change - the population gave its vote mostly to secular leaders, it's almost nothing. It's like saying "so what, we have elections too, it is normal".
