Media coverage of terrorism: methods of diffusion
The critical issues confronting media coverage of terrorism are examined in this book. Using specific terrorist incidents, it analyzes the selective labelling of acts of political violence and the symbolic nature of the specific characterization. What is the journalist's role in terrorist events? Does media coverage serve to encourage terrorism? These and other questions are examined within the triad `relationship' between government, media and terrorist(s). It also examines the implications of media coverage of acts of political violence on visual communication research.
