Is this editorial or a "news" report

I can find no statement of this outrageous bit of AP bias being an editorial comment.

The first few paragraphs are:

President Bush's depiction of Iraqi security forces as "helping to turn the tide" is difficult to square with persistent setbacks in handing control of the country back to its own people.

His suggestion that Americans are solidly behind the mission also understates opposition at home, and his hard sell on the rising quality of Iraqi forces overlooks complexities on the ground.

Bush on Wednesday declared the Iraqi army and police forces are "increasingly taking the lead in the fight against the terrorists," even as recruits patrol Iraq's most violent cities barely three months after learning how to use weapons and police forces struggle to get officers to come to work.

The hit piece by Calvin Woodward is entitled "Bush Attempts Hard Sell On Iraq Progress". It's unbelievable that this is the level of blatant bias to which the MSM has fallen.

Powerline has more.
