US media widely ignores Iraqi polls

Despite heavy costs of the war, what is happening in Iraq now does not get much attention from US news organisations.

    The United States spent eight years fighting in Iraq, but Wednesday's Iraqi parliamentary elections are not getting much attention in the country that used to occupy it. 

    Despite the heavy costs of the war, what is happening in Iraq now is almost never mentioned on American network news or in newspaper headlines.
