The No-Good-News-Reported-In-Iraq Paradox

What kind of logic is this?

How can people in one breath complain that there is not enough of the good news being reported in Iraq and say, in the very next breath, that it's just too unsafe for reporters to venture out of the Green Zone to report it?

I just don't get it.

I have forgotten my freshman course in logic. Is this a syllogism? Is it reductio ad absurdum?

Can someone help me out with this?

Iraq - Is the US media telling the truth?
