Real journalism in Gaza

In a couple of recent instances, correspondents in Gaza have reported involuntarily on Hamas rocket launches aimed at Israel:

Here is a reporter for India’s NDTV in Gaza behaving like an actual journalist:

This report is being aired on NDTV and published on ndtv.com after our team left the Gaza strip – Hamas has not taken very kindly to any reporting of its rockets being fired. But just as we reported the devastating consequences of Israel’s offensive on Gaza’s civilians, it is equally important to report on how Hamas places those very civilians at risk by firing rockets deep from the heart of civilian zones.

Update: Is this the beginning of a trend? Let’s hope so.

I imagine Jeremy Bowen must be feeling really foolish about now.
