Reporting on Terrorism: Recommendations for the Media

    In July of 2002, with funding from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Annenberg Public Policy Center partnered with the National Association of Newspaper Editors and the Radio and Television News Directors Foundation to conduct a day-long closed-door discussion with editors and producers of national and local print, broadcast, and news about the complexities of covering terrorism and preparedness. The participants recommended that the Policy Center produce a guide that would help people in the newsroom discuss concerns about covering terrorist threats and homeland security.
