The word ‘terrorism’ is one that is frequently used by politicians and journalist alike. With over 110 different definitions to the word, the international community is still unable to agree on a common definition of the word.

The new book by Wiley-Blackwell, Packaging Terrorism: Co-opting the News for Politics and Profit is the account of one simple idea: it is not the acts of terrorism that most matter in the post-9/11 world, it’s what we are told to think about these acts.

Author Susan Moeller says, “Journalism – whether in print, on air, or online –seems so transparent with words and pictures out there for all to see. But we rarely take the time to consider the choices that are made – the language that is selected, the voices that are heard, the images that are used and the stories that are told. The ‘powerful’ set the terms of public debate. Politicians tell us what to think. The media tell us what to think. Even terrorists tell us what to think.”

Media, both public and private, usually confirm the political and social agenda of governments. Packaging Terrorism: Co-opting the News for Politics and Profit dissects the positions of government and media, laying bare their vested interests that often lead to the distortion of news. By systematically looking at the international coverage of terrorism since September 11, 2001, Moeller demonstrates how British and American politics have influenced and manipulated the media in their portrayal of these acts. The provocative analysis exposes the priorities, assumptions, political debates and bottom-line considerations that have not only influenced media coverage and the packaging of news, but will also continue to influence news coverage in the future.

Moeller adds, “While a terrorist attack may be the precipitating event for news coverage, the overwhelming attention given to terrorism in the news relates to the political reaction to the event. Too often what we are told about terrorism is what governments say. As society’s primary source of information and catalyst for discussion and action, it is critical that the media provide unbiased evidence and credible content to ensure a functioning, civilized and ultimately free society”.

Media wishing to receive a copy for review in their publication, or schedule interviews with the author should contact Alina Boey, Senior Manager Corporate Communications.
