The role of the media plays an imminent part in the run up to the war in Iraq. The media repeatedly showed the planes crashing into the World Trade Centers. People were watching this horrific act being shown on every news channel for weeks after the attacks occurred.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, I woke up with great confusion not knowing what all the commotion was about at home in my living room.
