That’s what the foreign press corps appears to be doing now in Tel Aviv in preparation for an attack on Iran. They’re renting the right to put film crews and reporters on the city’s rooftops (Hebrew) during the upcoming war in order to cover the anticipated Iranian counterattack. That way they can get great photo ops and pictures of missiles wreaking havoc on the city. What a story! What a feast for the eyes! Other news organizations like CBS, Fox News, and NBC are sending their senior producers to Israel to scope out the place in case they have to send in the big boys–the news anchors and senior correspondents (especially since no one can report from Teheran!).
We can’t wait! I don’t know why I should have to point out that this is irony. But there are some right-wingers who have neither a sense of irony nor humor. So it’s for them I guess.
The propaganda spewed will have nothing to do with their location since they have NO choice.
Media operates on ratings which generate cash.
No ratings, no cash.
Further, many will argue that they want the "real" story, don't want it censored, don't want it interjected with propaganda, etc. Yet they want footage to judge for themselves. How does one get footage without coverage?
I personally find it disturbing that more people will watch horrific events unfold than a happy news story, but such is the majority mindset right now.
Want the media to change? Than change what motivates people to tune in. Until then, we watch and they reap the profits.

The narrative for this war needs to be carefully planned, it is clear how in recent days, the narrative is beginning to show Iran as the main aggressor here, with people thinking Iran will be the ones launching the attack. Notice the amount of 12th Imam posts recently. So now it's a question of attacking Iran before they attack Israel. Not how Iran will respond to an Israeli strike.
