Media towards the Occidental security evolution

In Western countries, mass media have been touched by the « terrorist » events of 11 September 2001 and all the others that have occurred since. Media have now their grounds « in » the territory of a crisis, which is like a war, and which has been extended to World scale. The administration, the police and military authorities recommends them to be responsible when fulfilling their security policies, for instance in the United States. The new situation of the mass media has created new problems when looking at the ideal of the democratic governments. Because of international terrorism, the journalists are invited to reverse the phrase « choose the truth, not a camp ». Is there a future for the projected democratic and secure society ? –Summary AFRI-2003
