Media Matters for America isn't just watchdogging the timid MSM, it's actually helping to supplement them. Here are some important—and largely unreported—findings of the Iraq Study Group, as noted in Media Matters' piece, "What the Media Aren't Telling You About the Iraq Study Group Report":

 Pentagon's underreporting of violence in Iraq

Lack of knowledge regarding insurgency and militias

Shift of troops from Iraq to Afghanistan [may be needed]

Lack of Arabic speakers

U.S. considering extending National Guard and Army reserves deployments

Spending on Iraq war is subject to little scrutiny [bypassing Congressional committees]

These are just the section headings of the piece. Read the whole thing, complete with links to the ISG report and kudos to those media that did report bits and pieces.
