Ann's question on Iraq just got 'answered'

Ann's question went up in Gwen Ifill's NewsHour 'chat' taking place right now.

Comment From Ann  
Good afternoon, Gwen. I'm bothered by the attack on Anbar Province in Iraq and the lack of western media coverage. Specifically, Nouri al-Maliki has been bombing the residential neighborhoods of Falluja every day since the start of the year. This is collective punishment and it is leaving many dead -- including many children. But we see nothing on the news about this in the US. Since we are the ones arming Maliki, this seems like a serious news issue in need of coverage to me. What does it take to get Iraq covered on The Newshour? Thank you.
Gwen Ifill: 
I have to say, if you're going to see coverage of the ongoing situation in Iraq anywhere, it will be on the NewsHour.

Ann at least commented.

The robot that is Gwen Ifill had nothing to say except The NewsHour covers Iraq.

Gwen didn't even offer, "Thanks for playing."

Good for Ann for getting the subject out there.
