On The Scene

Allison Hoffman, in Tablet Magazine:

The goal, as Dratwa explained it, is twofold: to get Israel's narrative out in real time, as people read about red alerts in Tel Aviv and rocket landings in Gaza on Twitter, and to cut out the middleman of "old media" in communicating with pro-Israel activists. "What we try to do is to be fast and get information out before the old media," Dratwa told me. "We believe people are getting information from social media platforms and we don't want them to get it from other sources-we are the ones on the scene, and the old media are not on the scene as are the IDF."

Old media, war media, new media.
