Why Is the War in Iraq Fading from View?

Hosted by

Iraq and Afghanistan now account for just 3% of the coverage in America’s print and broadcast news.  CBS News, for example, has no correspondent currently in Iraq.  We look at the cost, the danger and the attention span of American news consumers.  Is the third-longest war in American history a non-story? Also, Scott McClellan responds to White House criticism of his memoir, and the brains of monkeys have adopted artificial arms as their own.  Will the same technology work for paralyzed people?
