To be honest, I think that some militias not being willing to talk to media out of fear of demonization doesn't help alleviate the media blackout, but yet again, the militias can say "don't call us, we'll call you." I also don't blame them. One reporter gets killed, then it's a crap storm, with ninnies saying "CIVILIANS SHOULDN'T BE IN WAR ZONES!" Well ninny, WHERE'S THE NATIONAL GUARD? Although, militias are MUCH more flexible than mil units despite the lack of a hulking bureaucracy backing them up, if you don't count the Arizonans themselves and the Constitution, federal and state, as the bureaucracy. It's a good bureaucracy actually.
