Abstract
  • The mass media have had a strong presence in publicizing acts of terror throughout regions where such activities can be seen. Since the late 1960s scholars agreed on the existence of a relationship between mass media and terrorism, which they called `a symbiotic relationship'. However, minimal efforts have been dedicated to empirical studies on the impact of terrorism intensity due to media coverage. This research set out to examine the literature to support the impact on acts of terror through mass communication. The study concludes that there is a lack of empirical evidence to support the correlation due to outdated approaches to the matter in question. The existing data is limited to the period until 2005. This thesis provides a refurbished model to collect recent data from 2005 to the present. The renovated model shows promise to establishing a stronger correlation for this symbiotic relationship.
