Coverage of 10th Anniversary of Start of Iraq War

Fox News covered the Iraq war 10 year anniversary the least of the 3 major cable news networks, and MSNBC provided more coverage than CNN and Fox combined:

While MSNBC focused largely on the heavy toll of the war, Fox News figures asked questions like "how much more skeptical was the press supposed to be?" and declared the invasion "the smartest thing George Bush did."

Just a reminder: According to a recent Brown University study, the war in Iraq cost the lives of 4,488 U.S. service members, at least 3,400 U.S. contractors, and an estimated 134,000 Iraqi civilians. The US alone spent over 1.7 trillion dollars on the war, to date (there remain US Soldiers and contractors in Iraq despite the "end" of the war).
