According to Francois Brousseau, a senior journalist with CBC Radio-Canada

Quote:

Terrorism has been a focus of the media since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but the coverage may have done more harm than good, a senior journalist with CBC Radio-Canada told a Sudbury audience Thursday.

Francois Brousseau was part of a roundtable discussion at the University of Sudbury. The topic was media, security and liberty: the stakes and challenges since Sept. 11, 2001. He said media coverage of the attacks and the ensuing war on terror played into the paranoia that has gripped the United States.

"If we simply repeat what's being said by the president and don't check it against facts, we don't do our job," Brousseau said. "Our job is to put it into context. In some cases, we didn't do that, we didn't do the job of challenging the assertions that came from above.

"It was terrible. You read the papers and it was just the official line and nothing else."

I'm afraid M. Brousseau has it the wrong way round. The media coverage of terrorist attacks has by and large created the paranoia to begin with. "The War on Terror" is largely bogus.

Yes indeed. See, for example, this article which relates to the fake "War on Terror", more appropriately a War of Terror!Shocked
