Do employees of news outlets have souls?

The reason I ask is that terrorist acts are only effective when they get maximum news exposure. As I mentioned several posts ago, referencing Victor Davis Hanson, terrorism captures no ground and offers no alternatives to the status quo. Terrorism only scares people and affects public opinion.

As I look at Yahoo, CNN, BBC, Fox, or at any major news outlet, the lead story is the car bombing of a Shia funeral in Iraq and a car bombing which killed five brave American soldiers.

If news outlets want to stop terrorism they should run the body counts of terrorists killed in Iraq. If they want it to continue, don't change anything.

I wonder what Dante Alighieri would say about the mainstream media? Bottom circle, or slightly above?

OSM, notably, doesn't feature the carnage.
