Media and Fear: After Terrorism

SOCIOLOGIA DELLA COMUNICAZIONE

Fascicolo: 54 / 2017

This paper tries to underline the connections between decisions, policies, and especially the role of propaganda and the politics of fear that have helped set the 21st century agenda. In fact the dominance of the politics of fear and harsh language in justifying military and political action in combating terrorism was retargeted at domestic issues, policies, and individuals. The audience was primed to entertaining media presentations of dehumanizing and crude language especially after 9/11. Crime and war were used as narratives by the politics of fear that have drastically changed our culture and paved the way to the "war on terrorism" not only outside USA but also at home.
