Karl Rove on the media and Iraq:

In remarks to the annual convention of the American Society of Newspaper Editors, Mr. Rove lamented what he described as news organizations’ changing interpretations of how the war was proceeding. He said “the euphoria of April 9,” when news coverage was dominated by images of a statue of Saddam Hussein being pulled to the ground in Baghdad, did not match the earlier “flood of commentary that the military was bogged down and the strategy flawed.”

“So much information is coming so fast and from so many different directions that it can also make it difficult to maintain perspective,” Mr. Rove said. “Ultimately, we must have the capacity to stand back and see the deep currents and the important shape of events.”
