Survey on Iraq reporting from PEJ and Pew

A new report from the Project for Excellence in Journalism shows that journalists who have been in Iraq say the reporting has been accurate but spotty.

Here is the intro to the report:

After four years of war in Iraq, the journalists reporting from that country give their coverage a mixed but generally positive assessment, but they believe they have done a better job of covering the American military and the insurgency than they have the lives of ordinary Iraqis. And they do not believe the coverage of Iraq over time has been too negative. If anything, many believe the situation over the course of the war has been worse than the American public has perceived, according to a new survey of journalists covering the war from Iraq.
