Sunni regime?

Is no one else bothered by the way the media constantly portrays Saddam's regime as "Sunni dominated"? It was a secular regime with even Christians in the cabinet. Shi'ites were, on average, worse off because they had ben out of favor under the Ottomans for long centuries, and there was no affirmative action for them. Is that too complicated for the press to explain, or is bringing up affirmative action in a positive light politically incorrect now?
