Posted on: Tue 6 Jun 2017

Terror attacks around the world have recently been a constant staple of the breaking news cycle, with sites such as Twitter being a distributor of news updates on attacks, political comments and waves of sympathy from the public.

Tom Rohde asked Denis Muller, Senior Research Fellow in the Centre for Advancing Journalism at the University of Melbourne, about how the media covers terror attacks.
