As the Israeli ground offensive continues in Gaza, the international foreign press is waging a war of their own. Ethan Bronner, the Jerusalem Bureau Chief for the New York Times, and a pool of foreign press reporters have been consistently denied access to Gaza by the Israeli troops guarding the border.

Yet each day the pool of reporters heads to the border to try and gain access and each day they are turned away. Ethan Bronner joins us now.
