The Australian media and terrorism
By Anthony Bergin and Raspal Khosa
This paper looks at the Australian media and terrorism.
In any terrorist attack on Australian soil, it will be the media that defines the experience for the Australian public.
The paper considers media coverage of a terrorist attack, the period after a terrorist attack and ways to improve the preparedness of the media to cover a terrorist attack and assist in bolstering our national security.
