As SuperChicken would say....
"You knew the job was dangerous when you took it Fred..."
Seriously, you can't have the media reporting uncensored news when you are in a warzone... War relies on secrecy of plans, surprise, strategy, etc.
and the media aren't privy to that strategy, therefore they are ill-equipped to deem what is compromising, and what is not, in battle. One mentioned
the reporters lost in Nam. We take far better care of them now, as you saw on tv (custom flak jackets, etc.), but there will be accidents,
misidentifications, and tragedies. Let's not forget...those that are there, are there of their own free will...
