Two Israeli academics examine the ways a 24 hour news cycle, driven by independent media (often trans-national) has shifted conflict reporting, including cases of celebrity terrorists with their own highlight reels and Skype interview availability, the use of public interviews to back-channel negotiations, the rise of ordinary people in asymmetric warfare as producers and consumers of information and the disruption of editorial power and judgment by "disaster marathons" in the hands of anchors.
