The Media Creating Terror

More and more, I want to blog on the fact that "terror" is a media war. Terror only exists because the mainstream media gives continuous aid and comfort to these murders, encouraging more senseless deaths. The only reason we use the word "terror" is because the media promotes fear in the way that it reports the actions of Islamic fundamentalists. Terror is an emotional response, not an action. (Read Diana West take on this.) More people die from bicycle accidents than from terrorists, but the media doesn't don't brand bicycles as "terror contraptions." The media doesn't cover every death on the front pages and top of the broadcast. The media certainly doesn't air the views of those that hate bicyclists (they are out there), gloating every time someone dies in a bicycle accident. Yet it does all these things to promote fear of the Islamic madmen.
