Chapter 3, on news media, offers detailed discussion of formative Media Studies responses to 9/11, including two important edited collections, Barbie Zelizer and Stuart Allan's Journalism After September 11, and Steven Chermak et al's Media Representations of September 11. It also discusses a broad range of contemporary source material bearing on ‘trauma journalism’, and on relationships between the US military and the global media during the Iraq war (including the practice of ‘embedded’ journalism). The chapter also refers to a range of contemporary TV drama, including the revisionist made-for-TV movie DC 9/11: Time of Crisis and the drama series 24, and offers detailed discussion of the drama series Lost.
