Gadarian discusses news, terrorism and policy on CBC The National

Gadarian,-ShanaShana Kushner Gadarian, associate professor of political science, discusses the link between the quality and quantity of news coverage of terrorist acts and the impact on individuals, governments and the terrorists on CBC's The National. According to Gadarian, "Images matter. The emotions that you evoke really do have implications for how the public feels about whether or not they are safe, what kinds of beliefs they want to support, and their feelings about fellow citizens and whether or not they want to take liberties away from fellow citizens."
