News coverage as the contagion of terrorism : dangerous charges backed by dubious science by Robert G Picard( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
The literature implicating the media as responsible for the contagion of terrorist violence has grown rapidly, but, under scrutiny, it appears to contain no credible supporting evidence and fails to establish a cause-effect relationship. Some students of terrorism have borrowed conclusions from the literature about the effects of televised violence and crime on viewers and have attempted to project them onto the coverage of terrorism. But not all terrorism scholars fully embrace this view, and some cite the diffusion of innovations such as bombing techniques and technical training rather than media coverage as the contagion factor. Conclusions drawn from studies of diffusion of innovations in other situations do not provide much support for the view of the media as contagion agents. This does not exonerate the media from excesses in coverage, although one important school of thought suggests that coverage may actually reduce the possibility of terrorist violence by removing terrorists' need to resort to violent acts to gain coverage. While it is probably inappropriate for journalists to interview terrorists while their group's terrorist acts are in progress, interviews not conducted during a specific event should be helpful. The chances of this idea being widely accepted, however, are very slim. Whatever the results of legitimate terrorist research, it will move closer to reality than the views that the media are wholly at fault and wholly blameless. (Hth)

The military and the media in conflict : the Sidle Panel and the U.S. invasion of Grenada by Michael L Warden( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Exclusion of the press from the first days of the American invasion of Grenada dramatically brought into focus the fundamental conflict between the military's need for secrecy and the press's need to publish information. From the viewpoint of the press, the decision to exclude reporters from the island until the third day of the invasion denied the American people an independent source of information concerning U.S. activities and policies in Grenada. From the military perspective, the decision not to inform reporters of the invasion insured secrecy and thus the safety of troops sent to evacuate 1,000 American citizens. The response by the military to the media's reaction to their exclusion was the formation of a panel, headed by Major General Winant Sidle, to look at how future military operations would be covered. The panel's report contained recommendations they believed would permit press coverage of future military operations without jeopardizing either security or safety; this report thus contained an implicit criticism of the military's handling of the press during the invasion. The invasion of Grenada was a low point in relations between the U.S. military and the American media, and although the news organizations declined to participate on the panel, General Sidle's able handling of the proceedings placated the press to some extent. The benefit from this experience was the panel's success in bringing together representatives of the military and the news media for a step towards improved understanding by all parties.

Gambling with your health : predictors of risk for AIDS by Dominic L Lasorsa( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
To examine risk for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (aids) in terms of risk-related behaviors, and to investigate the factors that may be involved in putting one at risk, a study conducted telephone interviews with 493 randomly selected adults (18 years or older) in Austin, Texas in the fall of 1987. Respondents answered approximately 40 questions. An index of risk (defined as the extent to which an individual reported behaviors that put him or her at risk of getting aids) was formed from responses to five questions concerning sexual behavior, blood transfusions, and intravenous drug use over the past seven years. Other measures consisted of: "risky" attitudes toward aids; knowledge of aids; and exposure to each of three major daily news media (newspapers, and local and national television news programs). Results revealed that a majority of the variance in risk for aids was predicted by demographics and lifestyles, issue salience, knowledge of aids, and attitudes toward gambling with one's health. Significantly influencing risk for aids were the salience of the aids issue, newspaper use, and a gambling attitude. (Four tables of data and 33 references are appended.) (Mm)
