Checking Iraqi Cities for Good News

During a photo-op with President Bush Tuesday, Iraqi Prime Minister Eyad Allawi said there is a lot of progress to report from Iraq, but the media is not picking up on it. He cited four Iraqi cities as examples. NPR's Michele Norris checks in with journalists who have been reporting from two of those cities: Najaf and Basra. She speaks with Suraya Nelson and Patrick Krekstra, both of Knight-Ridder.
