I found out about the Russian invasion of Ukraine from a meme-site, where someone had cobbled together all the public footage available from the ground. The sirens, the little lights in the sky, the military aeroplanes, and the sound of bombs.
Jumping to Youtube (where I watch news channels), I found they have less information - just commentary, and one reporter on a street. I returned to the linked posts from the user known only as IDontEatBooty. The modern media, to get those images and videos, would have to contact each individual, and complete a contract, stating that they could use the footage. And they would have to talk over them - viewers would not receive the raw footage, to examine and replay as they pleased.
I don’t know what the solution here is, but I do think it’s a problem.
