Retaining Professionalism

Reader comment on item: Television in Time of War

Submitted by Jan Vink (Mexico), Aug 2, 2005 at 17:35

It is of utmost importance not to engage in "emotional" debates with Islamists on international or national television. Professionalism and civil discourse must be retained in our efforts to bring the tenets of radical Islam in the spotlight and onto our radar screens. Television can indeed be an effective tool to reach a wider pubic, but one must be very careful to choose the proper show and its participants.
