The Cycle of Information
The day following an event, newspapers begin to cover the story:
Boston Globe headlines, September 12, 2001
|"In an unprecedented
attack that told Americans they're no longer safe, two hijacked jets
on a horrifying suicide mission slammed into the World Trade Center
yesterday - killing thousands in the nation's worst terrorist assault
- and another crashed into the Pentagon.
The attack did far more than punch a gap in the New York skyline; it tore a hole in the national psyche as Americans watched live television images of the devastation, a frightening exhibit of American vulnerability."
