Avoiding the news?

Once again, Al Jadeed is the only channel covering the clashes in Beirut, where armed men are holed up in a building on Caracas street and army reinforcements have been called in. 
It’s a bit disconcerting when reporters have to strap on helmets and flak jackets to cover a story within the city that is not considered newsworthy for Lebanon’s six other channels, especially big players like LBC and MTV. Maybe we should be more concerned if they do get involved.
