During that period, Zambrano said they felt that the public needed to see more of the atrocity, the destruction, and the actual battle that was going on.

"We felt that would put the whole war and all its consequences into proper context," she said.

Prior to the Marawi siege, Zambrano covered the Maute group for two years and it helped provide the public with the background of the people responsible for the attack.
