Does the media actually report the news?


This thought provoking short film focusses on the role of the media as instigator of a climate of fear. It looks at the choice of news items and makes a simple point about the agenda of the news. Why not count how many stories on the national news are about ‘muslims,’ ‘islam’ and ‘terror threats’ in comparison to those about the dangers of driving. Look at the statistics at the end of this clip and consider for yourself which is the biggest threat to YOUR life – cars or islamic terrorists? – Which is more newsworthy? – Why?
