Better Terror Through Media

Though the al Qaeda network and Bin Laden may have taken the last month and a half off from spreading terror, they have the U.S. media to thank for its continued spread.

Everyday on the news I hear newscasters tell me that I should be fearful, alert, aware, and cognizant that we are in a new time now. Further, they are telling me how scared I should be and what precautions I should take in my daily life. They are even taking for granted that I am afraid. Afraid to open my mail, fly, or travel abroad. Is there something wrong with me that I don’t feel scared to do these things? Am I being naive when I think the media is overacting and doing a better job at terrorism than Bin Laden ever could?
