Media coverage aids terrorists

Today's onlinepressgazette carries a though-provoking report from a talk given by Olaf Wiig, the Fox News cameraman kidnapped in Gaza earlier this year: "Wiig said that from the outset his kidnappers wanted to make a hostage video and the biggest motivation for their involvement in the kidnapping, was to film an 'al Zarqawi-style video' to announce the arrival of that particular breed of jihadism in Gaza. One of the issues that Wiig and McNaught discussed was the possibility of an industry-wide agreement of a news blackout when a high-profile hostage is taken, as they said that broadcasting the news gives the kidnappers the attention they desire."
