I think you are correct

it's just a matter of the drone cost and maintenance costs being reduced to a level which the local media can afford.

The technology is already there. In fact, in one of Tom Clancey's later novels, the US Government uses drone feeds onto You Tube and other social media to bring down the Chinese Government. I believe that was in "The Bear and the Dragon" if memory serves me correctly.

You'd have to be careful using it locally. Berger might claim he saw a flying object or it was sending sending lazer rays into his skull. Or Barfield might claim it contributes to appetite cravings. Or the Wilmington Mayor might fear hair loss.
