The MediaSpy staff have decided with the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks approaching, it would be appropriate to have a discussion thread of the Australian coverage of the terror attacks in 2001.
In the past, we have closed the main TV history thread around this time of the year as we’ve had to deal with what the team call ‘Disaster porn’, where everyone gets a little too excited and forgets that 3,000 people died that day and set off a subsequent
never-ending war that killed many more. All we ask is that while you discuss the coverage, please be a little respectful.
This will be the only opportunity to discuss the coverage, after this year the thread will be locked and act as an archival read-only thread - only opened if new vision emerges.
This topic will open September 10, 2021.
