Is it possible that the media has contributed to this rampant increase in terrorist acts? All this information will be answered through a review of an article published by the Washington post on their website. Washington Post is one of the leading media houses in the world, providing news online and both in print.
The article is entitled, “How terrorism in the West compares to terrorism everywhere else.” Before we even proceed, the headline is already led by biases.

The article provides statistics that there have been 658 deaths in Europe and Americas since 2008 that have been non-militant related. There have also been 28,031 non-militant related deaths in the rest of the world. The term the rest of the world is not only provoking but also demeaning to the other regions of the world. How Terrorism Is Reported to Instill Fear.
