Video of HAMAS Concealing A Rocket On Hotel Grounds
There really is such a thing as television journalism from Gaza, after all. You just have to go to India to find it.
See today's NYT story for the details, but the gist of it is that an Indian TV news crew noticed people erecting a tent on the property of the hotel where they were staying, burying something there and covering it with brush, then taking the tent down and skulking away. A day later, the rocket was remotely launched.
The crew filmed this activity from the window of their hotel room. Their report was broadcast hours after the crew left Gaza.
None of the hundreds of other journalists in Gaza have done anything similar, although I've got to believe most of them had the opportunity to observe and record HAMAS activity. So score one for honesty in journalism. But just one.
