“There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers” (Proverbs 6:16-19, NIV). What media (a lying tongue, a false witness who breathes out lies, one who sow discord among brothers) and terrorism (a heart that devises wicked plans and hands that shed innocent blood) are fall into one verse, so do they have a relationship together? Yes, they do and it is one that has an agenda of its own. Media in our book is viewed in multiple ways it speaks of new (social and the internet) media and how terrorist can now reach individuals through chat rooms and websites and it also speaks of media (television, radios and newspapers) through television. Media through the internet has become a way for terrorist not only to recruit others but also to perform terroristic acts such as verbal attacks against America on Twitter and videos directed towards people to scare them. Television is the other major media avenue for terrorist to use. Terrorists have used this form of media multiple times as stated and shown within the article The Boston Game and the ISIS Match where it mentions “Americans were targeted due to the publicity of the sporting event and the news coverage it already had before the Boston Marathon bombs went off” (Galily, Tamir, & Samuel-Azran 2016). This article goes on to list other sporting events not only within America that also were focuses of terrorist attacks and explains how these areas are targets due to media. These types of attacks 9/11 included do exactly what terrorist hope, which is get others to not only fear them but be angry with them and retaliate. Along with the terrorist using media for their own purposes media does the same. Our book mentions multiple times where media especially television look for dramatic stories to focus which in most cases are terrorism around the world. Along with this focus they also hold biases with what they report giving many an agenda and causing facts either to be distorted or not true at all, this breeds a country that is only not worried (fear and anger from what they have seen) but also ill-informed leading to more issues within a country (White 2017).  That being said I believe that media and terrorism do share a symbiotic relationship on more than one level; media gets its stories, views and likes while terrorist reach a new community whether it be to terrorize them or to recruit them. I personally think that media may try to give valuable information but that they fail terribly at it due to having a bias, if there was not such an agenda I believe media would be much more useful but then again, we could then have people who know too much.  Word count (535).

            Personally, this author believes the role of the news media as it relates to the modern terrorist threat is to provide enough information about threats or actual attacks to help the public prevent future attacks and to recognize possible attacks or wanted persons involved in the attacks.  However, currently the news media, with its twenty-four-hour coverage, tries to draw eyes to it for their sponsors to be able to charge as much as possible for advertisement space and time.  Sutter wrote that the twenty-four-hour news cycle often results in lower quality coverage, which can be filled with speculation and unconfirmed reports, to take up broadcast time.  As a result, people continue watching the coverage to wait for new developments giving the attack more attention.

            This author believes there is a wholly symbiotic relationship between continued terrorist attacks and the news media.  The objective of terrorism is widespread fear which results in a desired change either in public policy or a change in the behavior or day to day lives of the affected citizenry.  White wrote “terrorists frequently seek to tell stories to publicize a cause…this implies that terrorist groups have a special relationship with the news media.”  If the news media did not cover terrorist attacks, then the results of attacks would not achieve their desired goal of widespread attention; it would result in very localized attention spread by word of mouth which would be filled with much misinformation.  However, the news media consumer demands information about important events such as those surrounding terrorist attacks so to ensure they remain in business outlets will give the consumer what they want; factors influencing this demand are the accessibility of coverage (on-demand via internet), fear of further attacks, and how the media frames the story (good vs. evil, the stories of those killed and their loved ones they left behind, etc.).  White continued by quoting Amble as saying: “that terrorists were quick to understand the power of the new media…they began to employ it in the 1990s as the Internet expanded, and they increasingly relied on it after it grew exponentially in the twenty-first century.”  Sympathetic people can also be inspired to join the cause of the terrorist by expanded news coverage; after the Boston Marathon Bombing the around the clock news coverage of the younger brother and disgusting Rolling Stones magazine cover made him appear as a rock star, resulting in fan mail, marriage proposals, and some public outcry for his release.  The news media must provide enough information to keep the public informed and safe without sensationalizing the event for their own monetary gain.
