It ain't easy being a war reporter

I am enormously pessimistic of the chance of decent on-the-spot reporting, as the war occurs.

This is a quote form Kate Adie, veteran war reporter who covered the first Gulf War. She goes on to claim that the Pentagon will, as policy, target any video uplink signals which they detect, and which have not been cleared. I remember some of the highly sanitized, video-game type reporting which came out of the last last Gulf War; Kate suggests that it will be even more controlled by the authorities this time around.
