#1 They claim the networks’ camera crews have been arriving at locations minutes before bombs go off or shooting begins.

You can't teach those great reporter "instincts".Some are just born with it.
..or you do it the easy way and get tipped by your boy "moonlighting" with Al Queda.

#3 Funny how they get there just before the bombs go off, ain't it?

Iraq isn't America yet, Al-Jizz, and that means they can ban your ass any time they like. It's still the Arab world, buckos...and guess what, we aren't going to stand in the way of this particular local custom.
