Watching the news yesterday during the air strikes they said that there not allowed to give locations of targets hit and that they were being silenced. I suppose now that one side had an advantage of gathering intel from the news. Why have all reports been silenced? Are we really at the point where they have worldwide power to silence something like this or is the whole thing non existant?

I am asserting that hamas was using media coverage to track where there missles hit and that an effort to silence the media has helped quell the violence.

From what I've seen this has been covered by many large MSM outfits like the New York Times, Washington Post and many others. It's been prominent on the Drudgereport as well.

If you mean television "news" reports then I have no idea since I haven't watched TV for many years.

Because they own the American Media.

They paid good money for our minds.

Plenty of news about it on UK mainstream media, also on Voice of Russia radio, RT, Al-Jazeera...I watch/listen to quite a few sources as a matter of course, which news outlets are you limiting yourself to so you can assert there is a media blackout?

Obviously because it's not war, it's Genocide, which is OFFICIALLY backed by the British and US Govs.

They can't report that! Lol

I'd say its because the MSM is owned by jewish interests that support Israel's genocidal policy towards the Palestinians.

If you'd like a sensible reply for a change ?

You may just as well say left a bit, a touch more fuel next time. These aren't sophisticated rockets.

Have no idea what you are talking about. I have seen reports of the attacks even on my local news stations.

I'm seeing plenty of reports on the tube.
If it's played 24hours a day people are going to get pissed off and if the don't show enough people are going to get pissed off its a no win situation.

The more I think about it why do people want to see it anyway? Is it to satisfy some kind of sick blood lust?

The statement i heard while watching fox news at two yesterday was the reporter there said he was not able to say much because of a media blackout. You can say what you want but most people watch cable news and the whole thing is either not happening over there or is silenced. I'm thinking it has to do with the cable news reports aiding hamas but i do not know much. I can say that it also seems strangely quite on the ats front. There were talks yesterday of a ground offensive and i feel lke that is happening but not reported. any links you peeps give i say thank you up front here.

I've often wondered the same thing. Why do people want to see the carnage of war? It's one thing if it's a movie but in real life it's quite horrific.

Don't wish for things you may regret.

Nobody is banning news the reports are there now if your talking about a live reporter following the military around then the answer is obvious they don't want their location blown.

bs you are just speculation. I seen and heard what i asked about. they specificaly talked about a ban on the media. If you search google for isreal ground offensive madia black out then you will see this has been the case many times.

What has got little play is the retaliation of the 3 murdered Israeli teens that resulted in a Palestinian teen being murdered by being lit on fire .

Israel is not a lawful society. Not just the government but also the population the government conditioned to not feel guilty about murdered Palestinians. These children from Israel are going to grow up believing that brutal treatment of non-Jews is acceptable. They hate everyone that is not Jewish and now this new generation actually believes only Jews are entitled to rights and fair treatment.

LINK

The current conflict IS getting coverage but only to slant it in Israel's favour once again to justify murder.

lol it is real funny to not know the facts. it is the cable news outfits that have been silenced because of the ability to recieve the broadcast with just a dish and box from just about anywhere in the world.

If you do not like Israel it is because the Zionist control the media. If you do like Israel it is because the media is anti-semitic.
