A New Model?

In describing the difficulty in covering the operations in Fallujah, NBC News VP Bill Wheatley explained: “There’s no police force to speak of, civilians are engaged in military efforts, it’s a very unstable situation. There’s not much law and order.”

Because of the increased difficulty and danger associated with getting journalists into Fallujah, the top networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox) have agreed to pool resources. They will share the video provided by a single embedded camera crew and they will also divvy up the use of a single satellite dish in the area.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could see the same kind of cooperation in D.C.?

Concentration is important!
