Following my last post there’s been a good response, so thanks to those who have shared their points of view.

What’s been said so far, is the belief that attempts to regulate television news plays into the terrorist’s hands and may lead to restriction of our civil liberties.  On the other hand there’s also concern that by giving undue coverage to terrorist atrocities, we equally play into their hands by disrupting our normal activities and encouraging copy-cat behaviour.

I’ve collected some of these misgivings into a  Code of Practice for Television News  where you can see what we’ve arrived at so far.
