I remember when the US invaded Somalia in 1992. At the time, people were blown away that CNN had cameras on the beaches before the US forces even arrived, ready to film the incoming troops. The level of media coverage was more of a story than the invasion itself. I can’t even remember why the US was invading Somalia, though I’m sure it was some variant of the standard justification of distributing democracy via gun barrels.
