Glorifying Terrorism – ‘The Oxygen of Publicity’

Lighting up the wrong things
I have a feeling that this is not really an appropriate response from Western Govts.

“And we must try to find ways to starve the terrorist and the hijacker of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend. In our societies we do not believe in constraining the media, still less in censorship. But ought we not to ask the media to agree among themselves a voluntary code of conduct, a code under which they would not say or show anything which could assist the terrorists’ morale or their cause while the hijack lasted?”
