Framing Terrorism: The News Media, the Government and the Public by Pippa Norris, Montague Kern, and Marion Just

$ 23.00

With terrorism now dominating headlines across the world, this book argues that, in political terms, the headlines matter as much as the act. Widely publicized terrorist incidents leave an imprint upon public opinion, muzzle journalism's "watchdog" role, and promote a national patriotic consensus. Contributors to the volume focus on how the news is manipulated, including issues of government censorship and the threat to civil liberties.
