Why the news is so uninformative

An NBC correspondent with 39-years in journalism provides a remarkably frank explanation of the problem with news reports from Lebanon: The reporters are young, they don't know anything about the region, and they fear Hezbollah.

In 2003, CNN admitted that fear kept them reporting from Iraq only what Saddam wanted: CNN kept secret the torture and murder of their own employees and contacts. Similarly, it seems that Fox should have had more fear of reporting from Gaza. This makes the recent fauxtography from Lebanon not so surprising.
