Iraqis surprisingly positive about future

Here is a report on the media obsession with all things negative. Got to love the intro to the Iraq elections:
According to an ABC News/Time magazine survey of 1,700 Iraqi citizens, released in advance of historic parliamentary elections on Thursday, “surprising levels of optimism prevail in Iraq,” according to ABC’s polling director, Gary Langer. “Despite the daily violence there, most living conditions are rated positively, seven in 10 Iraqis say their own lives are going well, and nearly two-thirds expect things to improve in the year ahead.”

As MRC comments, "Of course, those optimistic Iraqis don’t watch ABC, CBS and NBC every night."
