5. I seen both John Roberts and Anderson Cooper of CNN doing it

<snip>Embedded journalism is back, with CNN reporters leading the pack. This time around, however, CNN is embedded with the IDF and not the U.S. Marines. I have noticed that CNN, in Israel, obtained more of its reports from embedded journalists than the official Israel Broadcast Authority TV (IBA) itself.

Two Sundays ago, when a Hezbollah rocket killed 12 Israeli reserve soldiers in Kfar Giladi in northern Israel, the story immediately broke on Al Jazeera TV, with the Israeli Channel 10 also confirming that the deaths were among the military. French TV 5 also immediately reported the death of 11 Israeli reservists. Strangely out of sync, however, Mathew Chance of CNN reported to Wolf Blitzer, "Earlier today a barrage of rockets rained down on this area ... one of them hit a crowd of Israelis gathered in this car-park right behind me, killing at least 10 of them."

When ending his report, Chance stated that he was not permitted to tell us whether the dead were civilians or soldiers because of censorship laws in Israel. CNN was complying with Israeli censorship laws far better than the Israeli media.
