Access to information during national conflict is like walking a tightrope, and the military and the media are dependent on the tension to keep balance.
In times of war, the military and the media fight a battle of their own - a battle revolving around the dichotomy of secrecy and information. The military, notorious for keeping secrets, and the media, notorious for finding and reporting those secrets, are naturally in opposition.
