Media perspective #2

Some people think that the American government was behind the attacks on September 11, 2001. They think it was a strategy to help gain support for the invasion of Iraq. And they think it was a way to get people to feel scared and feel the need to look to the government for support.

Media bias

Media bias is the bias or perceived bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered.

Criticism #1 (Historical)

To this day we can see that there are no twin towers. Also it's in our history books so future generations will forever know what happened that day. The events that transpired on that morning will forever go down as one of the most infamous days in American history.

Criticism #2 (Cultural)

In 2001 and even to this day many Americans didn't trust anyone from the Middle East just because a group of terrorists happened to be from there. It's very similar to the Japanese after the events of Pearl Harbor.
