Synopsis: How Did the World s News Media React to 9/11? Not surprisingly, most of the world s news media criticized the terrorists and offered sympathy and support to the United States in the days right after the September 11, 2001, attacks. But this phase didn t last long. Within a week or two, many of the world s news media even some in Western countries were putting some of the blame for the attacks on the United States, citing its history of heavy-handed politics around the world. Many hoped the attacks would wake up the United States to this fact. But the subsequent U.S.-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq dashed these hopes. Today, much of the sympathy and support generated from the tragedy has dissipated having been replaced, instead, by a belief that political leadership in the United States is intransigent and self-absorbed. This is the major theme of "How the World s News Media Reacted to 9/11," which contains 22 chapters written by scholars and experts from around the world that examine news media coverage of 9/11 from more than two dozen countries. The self-absorbed theme isn t one that many U.S. politicians, journalists and citizens want to hear. But it s the message the world's news media have been sending.
