Captain's Quareters takes note

Captain's Quareters takes note of several embedded journalists being kicked out of "their" units, the reason being they were divulging confidential information that could endanger said units.

What's interesting is that in each case the journalist was working for broadcast media, as opposed to a printed publications such as a newspaper:

Meyle did not disclose the identities of the embeds sent home, but did note that they all represented broadcast media and not newspapers.
Is there a cultural diff between the two? Or is it just not worth a terrorist's while to bribe/threaten the print guys when it's the broadcast guys who have the real mass audience?
