This chapter studies the links between public opinion, terrorism, and media. It discusses counterterrorism, specifically how the responses to terrorism become a part of the propaganda and demand schemes of governments and terrorists, and looks at how the media puts up with them. The chapter then reviews and evaluates the important literature of different research strains in four categories on media and terrorism.
