It is almost a truism now to suggest that one of the primary reasons for the contemporary preoccupation with terrorism is the ubiquity of coverage in the media. Certainly there is no doubt that the media performs a critical role in conveying political messages to mass audiences, and in many ways the media helps set the political agenda. Indeed, although disaggregation and measurement of influence is inherently problematic, the consensus is that the media in some sense sets the parameters of political knowledge in society.
