Terrorism, global journalism, and the myth of the nation state

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 19 (1):29 – 45 (2004)
Citizens require independent reporting more than ever in the news coverage of conflict in the 21st century. The traditional role of national governments has been compromised both by terrorism and by technology that makes hard borders porous. It is unlikely that citizens or policymakers will cope with those changes unless they are reminded how the world has changed. That is an essential role for journalism, and provides a distinction between the terms nationalistic press and patriotic press. A nationalistic press simply repeats governmental messages; a patriotic press reports independently and keeps fundamental interests of citizens in mind.
