Did the media miss the rise of ISIS?

Anne Barnard, the Beirut bureau chief for The New York Times, on the realities of reporting on the ground in the Middle East. Barnard recently returned from Gaza, and has previously reported from Syria and Iraq.

An excerpt:

STELTER: Correct me if I'm wrong, but this feels like a singularly difficult, almost impossible story to be covering. Have you ever covered anything like it?

BARNARD: No, I have to say covering Syria and all of the ripple effects of Syria around the region is by far the most challenging thing I have had to do as a journalist, because you have access problems, both on the side of the Syrian government and in the insurgent-held areas, and you have an incredibly complex array of ripple effects throughout the region. And you just can't be in all these countries at once.
