Keith Olbermann brings on VoteVet.org's Jon Soltz to discuss Rep. John Murtha's most recent statement that the "surge" is working, noting that most of the rest of the media has been eager to only focus on the first part of his statement, essentially ignoring the second half, where Murtha notes that while the military aspect has done what it needs to, the political aspect has not been successful. Based on this Wired report, I would question if military aspect can really be categorized as "successful," especially considering that no politicians are ever given a chance to see anything but highly managed events within the Green Zone, and while troop casualties may be down, Iraqi casualties don't get reported. However, for the purposes of this comparison, let's give Murtha the benefit of the doubt and simply appreciate the context that Olbermann and Soltz attempt to provide to Murtha's statement.

Now watch how Lou Dobbs handles the very same story:
