As the White house launches an " Iraq War Room" to desperately try to spin the coverage of the occupation in Iraq ahead of their long awaited faux Petraeus White House report to congress next month, reality isn't coooperating. Despite the escalation which has pushed our military to its breaking point, Iraqi deaths have doubled since the surge began and US military casualties are way up too. More and more soldiers are speaking out, calling the White House's claims " surreal", yet much of the media remains content to report just what Bushco wants them to.

Didn't the traditional media learn anything from their pathetic sycophantic shilling for the White House in the lead up to the war? Apparently not.

Can you help us out?
